Governance guide for SharePoint Server 2010

This book provides guidance to help you determine the aspects of a Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 deployment to govern and the governance techniques to use. Governance is the set of policies, roles, responsibilities, and processes that you establish in your enterprise to guide, direct, and control how it uses technologies to accomplish business goals. To strike the right balance between the needs of the users of your SharePoint Server 2010 deployment and the IT professionals who deploy and operate SharePoint Server 2010, we recommend that you form a governance body that includes representatives of all stakeholders in the SharePoint Server 2010 deployment. This body can then create and enforce rules that govern the use of SharePoint Server 2010.

SharePoint Enterprise Content Management Implementers’ Course Downloads

This course teaches implementers how to leverage features in SharePoint Server to implement an Enterprise Content Management (ECM) system. ECM systems are designed to manage large amounts of content, including content in the form of documents and content in pages, wiki libraries, blog posts, and other types of non-document content. Document management is the heart of ECM. Document management in SharePoint Server consists of a rich feature set that includes tight integration to Microsoft Office client applications, standard version-control features, and innovative features that allow SharePoint Server to bridge the gap between a folder-based mindset of the typical user and the metadata-based mindset of a records manager. This course develops the key skills that are necessary to deploy SharePoint Server for ECM solutions at organizations of any size. Larger organizations should start with this course and supplement it with expertise in large-scale ECM implementations, whereas medium and smaller organizations may find all they need in this course to implement their systems successfully. The downloadable resources on this page are supplemental to the full online course with videos at: http://technet.microsoft.com/sharepoint/hh126808.

TechEd 2011 demo install step-by-step (Hyper-V, AD, DNS, iSCSI Target, File Server Cluster, SQL Server over SMB2)

The demo setup includes 5 virtual machines: one domain controller, one iSCSI target, two file servers and a SQL server. You need the iSCSI target and two file servers because we’re using Failover Clustering to showcase high availability. We’ll also use multiple Hyper-V virtual networks (called Internal 1, Internal 2 and Internal 3), so we can simulate some of the advanced network configurations mentioned in the presentation. Here’s what it should look like:

SharePoint 2010 in the Cloud – Cloudshare

The thing to note here is that this is not really about hosting a web site on a Virtual Machine somewhere but more about having machines available for any occasion, testing, developing, research or demos. A note also that the machines will suspend themselves after 90 minutes of inactivity (if you keep the web page open you should be fine), if you are using direct RDP then it may not last that long. All in all, though this is a very compelling solution for everyone. Highly recommend trying it out and seeing what it can do for you. J

MVPs for Office 365: MVP Award Program Interviews our Office 365 Guest Bloggers! - The Microsoft MVP Award Program Blog - Site Home - MSDN Blogs

The french MVP O365

Office 365 MVP:  Arnaud Alcabez

Q. What does being an MVP mean to you? (How did you feel to be awarded an MVP?)

A. My first nomination in 2004 was a surprise, because I did not know the content of the MVP program. Until 2010, I shared special instants with the Exchange teams and I would like to thank them for their encouragement and their availability to share their knowledge with their MVPs. This is the main advantage which I see: an annual pass to allow discussing equal to equal with Microsoft’s internal teams.  After some years, I consider the renewal Microsoft MVP recognition as a good metric of my commitment. Being a MVP, I need to know how to share my knowledge with others and how I can improve it. Day after day, it is difficult to make sure if I respect this practice. The recognition as MVP is a good method to assess it.  I would like to say thank you to my employer, Capgemini, where I work as Office 365 technical expert to bring its support in this recognition. And the last, but not the least, the MVP recognition is a ticket to promote the French culture and expertise and maybe to destroy clichés (for example: Always ready to criticize ;-)) about the strange French people. ;-)
