What is Governance? A set of policies, roles and processes that guide and control how organizations and IT teams achieve business goals, including: - Information Architecture (How do we grow IT effectively?) - Classification of content (What is it, where is it, and how long does it live?) - Customization (How do we allow flexibility while maintaining standards?) - Branding (How do we ensure a consistent user experience?) - Enforcing goals/principals (How do we ensure alignment of Business goals?)

Site administrators must be constrained to a specific set of presentation layouts (to enforce visual consistency across departments), but each department needs the ability to implement specialized content and services specific to their needs. A global schema and metadata framework must be enforced for all content while allowing for department level customization subscriptions to meet specific IT tagging needs. Regardless of division perspective, users must tag content using consistent business terms that are meaningful to all users (so that information can be easily discovered) Oh, and by the way, this needs to be done with the free edition of SharePoint (to avoid $$$ for enterprise licenses)..

ESRI Dev Meetup Lightning Talk ArcGIS for Windows Phone extends the reach of GIS from the office to the mobile web. It includes an application for use on Windows Phone devices and an API that enables developers to create engaging consumer and business applications on a Windows Phone. The API is built on the Windows Phone Application Platform which includes existing Microsoft tools and technologies such as Visual Studio, Expression Blend, Silverlight, and the XNA Framework. Developers already familiar with those technologies and their related tools will be able to create new applications for Windows Phone without a steep learning curve.
