SharePoint (SP) provides for collaboration, document management, workflow, business intelligence and more. With this range of capabilities, CIOs must determine which components to deploy and how to do so. Most critically, CIOs must decide whether SP is just a team tool or part of a larger enterprise content management (ECM) strategy with the implications of cross-organization findability, policy compliance and governance. . . .

Today, information has two aspects: On one hand, it is the basis for most business processes and can create a decisive competitive advantage. On the other hand, the sheer volume and complexity of business information and its tendency to get lost within large organizations can put the brakes on productivity, waste resources and overtax the IT staffs deployed to support the relevant systems. So, before being overrun by information, organizations should develop. . . . Posted October 16, 2011

Recent reports suggest that taxonomy management and auto-classification is one of the top five most popular third-party add-ons for SharePoint 2010. A part of any strategic decision to standardize on SharePoint 2010 is to take full advantage of the Term Store Management Tool—Microsoft's initial building block to enable organizations to natively build taxonomy structures and facilitate the management of large amounts of content—much of which is strategic or of high value to the organization. . . .

SharePoint is one of the fastest selling Microsoft products of all time. It's been around for less than a decade and the 2010 release was only the fourth. So, by any measure, Microsoft SharePoint's success has been off the charts. According to AIIM, two-thirds of its membership use SharePoint. Nor is it only analysts and industry groups that confirm SharePoint's rapid acceptance. SharePoint's viral spread. . . . Posted October 16, 2011

Social computing has fundamentally changed the way people share and consume information—ultimately boosting productivity and innovation. Through the use of Microsoft SharePoint and social technologies, business conversations are now occurring in transparent work streams, enabling connections and dialogues to happen more expediently—and in some cases to occur under serendipitous circumstances that might never have occurred. . . .

Of closets and stores... In the words of a leading analyst I talked to recently, content management is a bit like an organized information closet. It provides a way to create and store documents, HTML pages and other types of content. It includes things like version tracking and approval processes. It tags and classifies information, often grouping knowledge by domain. All in all, it provides a cost-effective way to create and organize information. . . . Posted October 16, 2011

Are you thinking about deploying SharePoint in your organization? You won't have to do much research before you come across the big "G" word—governance. Just the word itself is somewhat imposing and definitions for it will vary. In fact, if you ask three different experts what governance means, you're likely to get four different answers. And while I have yet to find the one perfect definition of governance, I can accept this one. . . . Posted October 16, 2011

My trip up the learning curve for SharePoint is practically Sisyphean. Every time I think I've got my head wrapped around it, I find out... not quite, buster. Not the using of SharePoint—that's easy as pie. It's everything else that my former boss would have called "the surround stuff". . . . Posted October 16, 2011

Search is the circulatory system for knowledge. It excels at finding data and information, from which knowledge is constructed. Search can't quite create knowledge—ultimately, that's a human task—but it does help. Yet just as knowledge is not static, search must be more than a static search box.

It's the suggestion that people running a knowledge management program fear the most: After presenting requirements for a KM tool, it's almost inevitable that someone at the table looks thoughtful and says, "I think you should use our content management system instead."

In order for an organization to properly implement and utilize a document management and workflow solution, it must first understand the "why" behind the potential purchase. In many cases, an organization will task an employee for identifying and cataloging multiple enterprise content management (ECM) vendors without understanding the overall need or push for this type of solution. . . .
