The SharePoint Symposium aims to be something very different, a conference on the topic of Microsoft SharePoint that does not proselytize. Whether you already have SharePoint in your organization or are looking to acquire it, you will encounter no sales pitches here.

What you will experience are sessions led by true industry experts that will lead you through the pros and cons and strengths and weaknesses of SharePoint in practice. From managing (and avoiding) the threat of sprawl and viral growth, to considering alternatives and add-on techniques, all the conference schedules will be drawn from real-life experiences and best practices from leading practitioners.

Three Prerequisites to Addressing Change

Why is change often so tough? We become tied to what we know. We turn our actions into habit. We become comfortable with how things get accomplished. And, it is when this "how" broadly becomes comfortable, that we—as people, as leaders, as technologists, as workers—are at risk of becoming stagnant; our organizations at risk of becoming irrelevant. Especially now in the era that Gartner has aptly coined "Big Change," we have to be open to new ideas, new technologies, new ways of conducting business . . . .

Best Practices in WEB CONTENT MANAGEMENT

MASTER YOUR WEBSITE
Take Control of Content

Web content management has two major components: 1. What you put on your website; and 2. How you put it there. Web content needs to be succinct, descriptive and accurate. None of those things is easy.

That’s where Web content management tools come into play. By guiding the user through the practice of writing (also called authoring), collaborating, administering (also called following the rules), web content management tools can help every employee, however skilled, to do it right and according to accepted policies.

To what degree are you prepared to manage the fine details involved with Web publishing. Everyone in your company, from marketing to sales to administration has a stake in it. Are you doing right by your site? Find out how in the next KMWorld White Paper, “Best Practices in Web Content Management.”
