SharePoint 2010 Roles and Responsibilities Discussed at SharePoint Tech Conference 2011

by , Posted February 10, 2011 - 8:22

The SharePoint Technical Conference, held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Burlingame, hosted the world’s best SharePoint talent under one roof for 3 days of SharePoint education.

I was accepted as a feature speaker for this event to deliver 2 presentations, one of which was SharePoint 2010 Roles and Responsibilities: 2010 and Beyond. This presentation was originally conceived in December 2009 and delivered via WebCast to a packed session of attendees for SharePoint Saturday Kansas City.

I felt the need to update the content for this session for two main reasons:

* SharePoint 2010 adoption rates and deployment statistics have steadily risen since December 2009.
* My perspectives and experiences on large SharePoint projects such as the University of Tennessee have sharpened my views and I wanted to share those with an audience that is knowledgeable about the SharePoint platform.

Session Updates:
In addition to speaking points such as: The current state of Roles and Responsibilities, Identifying the Gray Areas which Hinder SharePoint Teams, Strategies for Increasing Knowledge Sharing, and Developing a Common Skillset Matrix, I also covered the following topics:
* In the SPTECHCON session, I discussed how Enterprise Social Networking features such as the Outlook Connector, MySite enhancements, tagging and more will make the role of the Executive Decision Maker more prominent than ever. The majority of Corporate Social Media campaigns are the brainchild of a visionary CIO or CTO who wants to leverage new tools to gain a competitive advantage.
* The evolution of the Business Analyst as a technical contributor with the release of Visual Workflow Design in Visio 2010 and Business Connectivity Services enabling Analysts the ability to Create, Read, Update, and Delete data generated from Line of Business systems within the corporate infrastructure.
* Office 365 and cloud computing’s impact on organizations. How will SharePoint Administrators manage environments without having hands-on access to hardware resources?

One interesting question I received from a session attendee was: How will the release of SharePoint 2010 impact Quality Assurance as a department and/or process within enterprises?
