Server Information Technology Specialist at FM Global, Serving as a member of the Windows Server Application Support team, i mainly support the corporate microsoft dynamics CRM environments, on both the current version of 4.0 and the upcoming Dynamics CRM 2011 environment, with Sharepoint Integration. I have an MCTS certification in wss 3.0 and MOSS 2007 and recently an MCTS in Sharepoint server 2010 with plans to achieve the MCITP in Sharepoint 2010.
While my current role isn't primarily focused on sharepoint, I have many years of enterprise Sharepoint experience, and often take part in the troubleshooting of the corporate sharepoint environments, and provide advice on the setup of new sharepoint infrastructure. In my previous role i architected and administered a sharepoint environment which handled an average of about 3000 concurrent users with over 25000 registered users, in a large Global AD forest.
To me sharepoint is a fantastic technology, that can be very versatile to fit a variety of different business needs when implemented properly. Plagued with governance issues from either to much or to little, a lack of user education, and inadequate OOTB installations, Sharepoint oftentimes can gain a bad reputation in an organization. With a combination of proper training, proper administration, and proper governance policies most of these pitfalls can be avoided, and the organization can benefit from a reliable and flexible sharepoint environment, with a high user adoption/retention rate.
To use my experience with sharepoint to help out others in the community.
