When implementing SharePoint, you need to solve numerous challenges: How do you provide fast page loads for field personnel and traveling executives? How do you minimize the impact to your servers and network? How do you set up the SharePoint site to provide the most efficient access to information for your users? And most importantly, how do you ensure that the field personnel and traveling executives who need to access SharePoint content when they have a poor, or non-existent, internet connection are still productive?
Every stage of your SharePoint project provides opportunities for optimization for field personnel and traveling executives. Whether you are just beginning to develop the site and are wondering how to minimize the overhead on your IT infrastructure, determining how best to lay out content for field users, or have completed your implementation but are dealing with performance complaints and trying to solve issues with offline access, there are steps you can take to make sure your SharePoint site is the best it possibly can be for your users.
