SharePoint is not a business tool that can simply be plugged in and left alone. Many organizations have learned, some the hard way, that SharePoint deployments require effective planning and management to make sure they actually help improve workplace collaboration and operational efficiency.
This edition of their quarterly SharePoint e-zine, sponsored by AvePoint, examines ways that a sound SharePoint governance plan can help avoid deployment problems and ensure the continued success of an implementation. Consultant Don Jones points out how to avoid some of the costs and long-term problems associated with organic SharePoint growth. He explains how careful up-front planning will help simplify ongoing SharePoint management once a system’s been deployed — and its use starts expanding.
Also in this issue, Brien M. Posey tackles the subject of storing binary large objects, or blobs. He writes that because SQL Server is optimized for storing structured data, the unstructured information typically found in SharePoint files might be better managed using SharePoint 2010’s remote blob storage feature.
