Snapshots from SharePoint Conference 2011

As my colleagues ( Nick and Gavin ) have already blogged, SharePoint Conference 2011 was a massive conference with over 7,500 people attending from around the world, 240+ sessions, and 200 vendors displaying their wares. The main theme of the conference was about making the most of your existing investment in SharePoint. The tagline being that attendees never utter the words “I didn’t know SharePoint could do that” ever again. ... read full post

Enterprise search options for SharePoint 2010

One of the biggest challenges facing most organisations is cataloguing and retrieving content from their many disparate systems. The sheer number of systems (including document management, CRM, and financial systems, amongst others) within which that information might reside can be quite staggering – anyone who actually steps back and attempts to count the number of such repositories is usually surprised at large number of them. ... read full post

Can SharePoint meet the demands of business solutions requiring relational data?

If you’ve built SharePoint solutions with many-to-many relationships in SharePoint 2007 you may have come to appreciate the boundaries that existed when dealing with relational data. You may have instead decided to leverage back-end relational databases to manage your table structures rather than utilising native SharePoint lists. With the introduction of Access Services in the SharePoint 2010 Enterprise version we now have the ability to create, share and manage relational databases online within our SharePoint sites. ... read full post

It's official - SharePoint 2010 is now available (and here's everything you need to know for starters)

If you’ve been following the Intergen blog lately, or if you attended our ‘SharePoint Unveiled’ launch yesterday in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, you’ll know that our SharePoint experts have been all-consumed by the latest release of the world’s leading business collaboration platform, SharePoint 2010.

What is the major advantage of upgrading to SharePoint 2010 for New Zealand businesses?

Anyone who has worked on a SharePoint project knows that SharePoint development can be challenging.

Breaking down the Chinese Walls: Intergen + SharePoint 2010, better together

At Intergen we pride ourselves on working with technology VERY early in the product lifecycle. Most of the time this is under NDA and, as such we can't share it with our customers. In some cases we actually need to implement Chinese Walls , such that we restrict knowledge of certain projects even amongst our staff. This sort of approach is quite prevalent among other professional services businesses, such as legal and accountancy firms, but it's a rarer occurrence in the IT business. ... read full post
