Innovative-e, Inc. (Innovative-e) and AvePoint, Inc. (AvePoint), the leader in governance and infrastructure management solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, are partnering to host a free, live SharePoint webcast titled,“5 Steps to Effectively Build a Governance Business Case for Microsoft SharePoint” at 1 pm. ET on Thursday, March 15, 2012. Microsoft SharePoint Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs) Dux Raymond Sy, managing partner of Innovative-e, Inc., and Jeremy Thake, enterprise architect at AvePoint, will explain how to build a compelling business case that demonstrates the business value of having a governance strategy for SharePoint deployments.
SharePoint 2010 is a software platform that makes it easier for people to work together, and its rapid adoption is leading many IT organizations to recognize that SharePoint has evolved from being just another tool into a widely adopted business enablement platform. As a result, forward-thinking organizations realize that having governance for SharePoint is paramount to mitigate risk, reduce IT costs and ensure compliance associated with user access controls. A key challenge to implement a governance strategy, however, is the lack of proper business case justification.
The webcast will highlight the business, cultural and technical impact of SharePoint in organizations today. More importantly, it will outline the key steps to justify a governance strategy for SharePoint that can deliver real, demonstrable and repeatable ROI to the organization. By attending the webcast, attendees will learn how to:
• Define the success criteria of an enterprise SharePoint implementation;
• Engage decision makers in formulating a SharePoint roadmap;
• Align business and technology goals with a strategy for SharePoint governance;
• Prioritize business needs to achieve quick wins with SharePoint;
• Deliver a relevant governance business case for an enterprise’s SharePoint deployment.
