TEXT SLIDE House Rules
TEXT SLIDE Agenda Business Demand Pitfalls & Challenges of a “Reactive Approach” Doing it Differently
TEXT SLIDE Why SharePoint demand? SharePoint has “grown-up” Business been told it is easy to use Will save them money, is “cheap” or is “free” Easy to “knock together” Adds great value
TEXT SLIDE The common reactive approach Business A = All-in-one SP2010 Server! Business B = Upgrading 2007 Server! Business C = Needs dedicated SP2010 & SQL Oh! And Enterprise Licences too! Department D = Get’s a Document Library on Business A’s server. Team E = We’re very small, and want our own “free version” on our own VM!
TEXT SLIDE Pitfalls & Challenges Multiple Servers, Databases, etc. Increased Costs: Licensing, Support & Maintenance What’s Cheap & Easy about that? Nothing!
