The highest and most effective use of SharePoint includes business units operating at the same level with SharePoint, including your original data. SharePoint must be deployed as a shared system of data, where trusted information is surfaced up from accounting, document management, data collection and governance. Without these components in place, it is questionable whether or not your implementation will succeed.
The question is, how do you create and align a SharePoint roadmap and plan that is strategic to your organization, and not tactically based on implementing SharePoint to perform only a percentage of what it is capable of doing. Join Eric Riz to learn how to make SharePoint the enterprise system that Microsoft intended it to be. He will discuss deployment strategies, tips for aligning your line of business (LOB) data, and help you conceptualize how your SharePoint implementation can become strategic while devising a business plan for your implementation. Attendees will learn how to see the tangible, conceptual workplace that your executives had hoped for SharePoint.
