Five things your designer needs to know about SharePoint

If you are a User Experience Designer working in the SharePoint world, chances are you have been asked whether you can make “SharePoint not look like SharePoint”. There is still scepticism relating to the use of SharePoint for public websites and how much control we have over branding as it applies to the user interface. The truth is, SharePoint is a great platform for delivering public facing websites which have that highly sought after ‘wow factor’. ... read full post

SharePoint Elite - just what does that mean?

If you didn’t get the news, Intergen has become the first Microsoft SharePoint Elite partner . This is fantastic news for a number of reasons, not least of which is that it recognises our capability and experience with SharePoint. However it goes beyond that - the Elite initiative recognises the significance that SharePoint plays within the Microsoft (and our) world. Because SharePoint is so significant it is critical for Microsoft to ensure that the partner channel has the skills, experience and capability to deliver successful solutions using this technology. ... read full post

Let's talk SharePoint

This year’s SharePoint Conference (held at the Conference Centre in Seattle, USA) can only be described as a huge success. Throughout the conference I was impressed that the organisers were able to “practice what they preach” by using SharePoint to host the conference website. Not only did this provide useful information when preparing to attend the conference but was a useful tool throughout and even after the conference. One of the things that impressed me most was the personal areas (through the use of MySites) where each attendee was able to plan, view and manage the sessions they attended and also provided the ability to submit session evaluations online. ... read full post

SharePoint fails at collaboration?

Here at Intergen we run a series of late afternoon sessions called Twilight Seminars . This week we had a guest speaker, Michael Sampson , whose session was based on his white paper: The 7 Pillars of IT-Enabled Team Productivity: The Microsoft SharePoint 2007 Analysis , where he states: “On its own merits, SharePoint fails the needs of teams for collaborative software in 6 out of the 7 areas. It thus passes only one of the areas on its own merits and it passes an additional two areas if the organisation adds additional server software from Microsoft. However, using the software available from Microsoft, it earns a failing grade in 4 out of the 7 areas.” ... read full post
