In 2008, Microsoft announced that SharePoint had become its fastest growing product ever. A survey in July 2010 (http://bit.ly/dCmuEi) suggests that 64 percent of firms use SharePoint organization-wide with another 22 percent using it departmentally. Now that SharePoint 2010 has been released, this growth is expected to continue. Despite this growth, deploying SharePoint and leveraging its rich set of features is not a trivial undertaking and challenges do exist.
This essential guide discusses what challenges may arise and how to overcome them to successfully plan and architect a SharePoint implementation. Guidance on how to address governance and training to promote proper usage is also provided.
