What’s Hot: Sharepoint Semantics Dec 30 – Jan 6
January 10, 2012
This week, SharePoint Semantics provided followers with several informative articles to help end users navigate through the mine field that is often associated with the SharePoint experience.
According to the post, “New Book Explains the Benefits of Silverlight for Microsoft SharePoint 2010,” a recently released book gives an extensive overview of how to package an application created with Silverlight, a browser plug in technology similar to Adobe Flash, so that it works well in SharePoint.
Writer Ken Toth states:
“The authors have also included new ideas that were not documented anywhere, such as an easier way of packaging Silverlight applications for deployment on SharePoint. The book’s audience is developers familiar with the .NET framework and has tutorials on the basics of both Silverlight and SharePoint development.”
Another post worth noting from this past week, shares seven recent webinars for free consumption. According to “Free Webinar Recordings of Notes Migrator SharePoint Partner Training Series” there are links to the audio and slides from Walch’s seven-week Partner Training webcasts on migrating Lotus Notes to SharePoint.
Toth aptly notes:
“Large migration projects can be tricky, and finding content once you have migrated to SharePoint can be even trickier. To solve both these issues, look to the Semaphore Content Intelligence Platform from Smartlogic as your migration tool to speed up SharePoint commissioning and add comprehensive taxonomy support.”
Recently, discussions regarding SharePoint governance have come into play as well as a certain graphic. The post “Pie Graphic from Microsoft – Should it be Used to Explain SharePoint?” shares one unique perspective on this issue.
“A survey follows the article polling users if they are using the SharePoint 2010 pie in presentations. Right now, most use the graphic judiciously depending on the audience. A graphic is a good approach to explaining the breadth and depth of the SharePoint platform, but as the author points out, there really isn’t another comparable compelling graphic out there besides the pie.”
In order to fully discuss and understand SharePoint effectively, it is important that end users utilize a variety of different resources. For those who don’t want to take the time and energy to follow these diverse points of view, and would rather easily boost the search and find experience, turn to Smartlogic and the Semaphore Content Intelligence Platform.
