After the Dust Settles: What to do with SharePoint AFTER You Go Live
It’s no secret that it is not easy to successfully implement SharePoint; whether it’s getting SharePoint installed properly, provisioning site collections, creating security groups, or hundreds of other tasks there are just so many things that need to be done before go-live. Because of the intense prep work that has to go into a SharePoint deployment, it’s often difficult to think about what you’re going to do to keep SharePoint running smoothly once you have it in place. Not to mention that if you were successful in creating a SharePoint environment that your users are actually using, there’s a good chance you’re going to be scrambling to keep up with them as adoption grows and grows.
In this session attendees will receive critical information, insights, and advice on how to make sure that their brand new SharePoint environment stays healthy and stable so that their users can stay happy and productive. The session will cover topics such as common gotchas, tools and checklists for making sure SharePoint is still in good shape, and key metrics to keep an eye to identify growth and usage of the system. It will also introduce SharePoint admins to concepts such as adding new servers to an existing farm and how to apply SharePoint updates and patches.
