Structure SharePoint Capabilities to Provide Users with a Platform they can Adopt

SharePoint, one can argue, falls into the category of a feature-rich office automation computing platform. Perhaps feature-rich is an understatement when one considers the panoramic range of functionality SharePoint is capable of supporting. But this expansive range of capabilities can, and often does run counter to stakeholder efforts to hasten user adoption, and with good reason. The following example should provide some of the rationale behind this conclusion: We recently had a series of conversations with one of our customers, a non profit organization with a group annual subscription to all of the content on SharePoint-Videos. Our customer expressed an…

Organizations Supporting a Mix of SharePoint Versions Benefit from Online Video Training Options

For organizations with a mix of SharePoint® server versions, group subscriptions to online video training content are a sensible method of providing administrators, developers, and systems architects with the technical training content they require to successfully support all SharePoint users. One might ask “when does it make sense to support a mix of SharePoint server versions?” The best answer to this question is when a migration plan is still under consideration. In this scenario, the proof of concept still hasn’t been verified, so it doesn’t makes sense to move an entire organization over to a new server platform. Usually a…

It Makes Sense for Enterprise Organizations Looking to Manage Support Costs for SharePoint to Train Site Owners for Self Maintenance

Rehmani Consulting, Inc. has recently introduced a help system for Microsoft® SharePoint® 2010, VisualSP™. Our system delivers all sorts of training content — whether in video, document, slides, or even image format — directly within the SharePoint 2010 work space.

In fact, in-context access adds a stickiness to SharePoint, while removing any need for users to leave SharePoint to locate training information about policies and/or procedures. In our opinion, any content that can be used to successfully maintain user interest within a potentially unfamiliar — not to mention unwelcome –computing environment should…

Use Instructional SharePoint Videos to Train a Cross Section of All SharePoint Users

A common conundrum facing IT management is deciding where to allocate technology training budgets; is it more important to train users, or ought we to train internal administrators, architects and developers as a means of lowering our development costs? As we have written elsewhere in this blog, training budgets for SharePoint may be low, or even non existent; usually, this “no training dollars” condition arises from IT projects that either did not include ROI objectives, or failed to deliver on them. Now, with portfolio management a ubiquitous obligation for IT, regardless of whether or not a decision to implement SharePoint…
