4 INCOSE Connect Purpose
Support a culture of effective two-way communication throughout INCOSE by providing: Private workspaces for INCOSE activities (TLT, CAB, Member Board, Chapters, project teams, etc) Distributed collaboration capabilities (document repositories, discussion threads, calendars, action items, decision histories, etc)

5 Architecture INCOSE Connect is an internet service built on Microsoft SharePoint Technologies. Will be updated to Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 after the IW 08. Each INCOSE Connect site is a separate protected workspace. Each workspace view is divided into “web parts” Workspace access is managed by Site Administrators Permissions can be reader, contributor, designer, or full control. Site administrators can create new sub-sites With the same or different permissions as the parent site.

6 Current State 212 INCOSE Connect workspaces and 6,160 user accounts have been created. 59 Chapters have an active workspace. Additional workspaces and user accounts can be created upon request from the team leader. Current Users Academic Council INCOSE Administration Technical Leadership Team Member Board Chapters (Region I, II, III, IV,V, and VI) Board of Directors Corporate Advisory Board Various Technical Working Groups INCOSE Members

7 Windows SharePoint 3.0 Pre-requisites
Before accessing INCOSE Connect, please be sure you meet the Computer software meets the following prerequisites. In order to access INCOSE Connect, you must be running one of the following browsers: Optionally, Microsoft Office 2007 provides enhanced SharePoint/Office integration features.

8 How to Get Connected – Permissions -
All INCOSE members are given an INCOSE Connect username and password. If anyone has forgotten your username or password for access, please visit: If you do not have a username or still have questions, please contact

9 What's Improved in Windows SharePoint Service 3.0?
Wikis Issue Trackers Surveys Project task Management Integration Users can only see features that they have access to view Automatic breadcrumb bar - helping users navigate appropriately Better version control Better indexing & searching RSS Support Support for more browsers (Firefox & Safari) Extranet mode - eliminate multiple authentication dialog boxes Why we use basic authentication: If on the Connect site we downgrade from Integrated Windows Authentication to Basic, the password can be saved. Eliminates the problem of CONNECT\first.last or just first.last Some users had problems with Integrated Windows Authentication (their browser tried to automatically log them in) Extranet Mode Sharepoint Central Administration -> Application Management -> Authentication Providers -> Default. Use basic authentication, disable client integration.

10 Permissions – Set by Administrators
Includes the following permissions for users: Full Control - Full control of the scope. Design - Can create lists and document libraries and edit pages in the Web site. Contribute - Can create and edit items in existing lists and document libraries. Read - Read-only access to the Web site.

16 What is a Wiki? A wiki is a Web site that enables users to add new content or amend existing content. As soon as you post on a wiki all users are able to contribute, by adding or amending the original document. They do not have to ask permission, from the author or an administrator, because everyone is empowered to contribute. Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 provides history and version management, so that no original thinking is lost. The wiki community manages change and ensures accuracy and relevance. This shared-document collaboration element is the main difference between blogs and wikis. The originating author relinquishes ownership of the content on publication. The authors do not need to write HTML, because the content appears in a basic editor interface that enables anyone with basic keyboard skills to add, amend, reorganize, or delete information. More advanced wiki software enables advanced editing, such as support for rich text fonts, graphics, and HTML tags. This means that collaborative development is fast—the term “wiki” comes from the Hawaiian word for “quick.” Initially, researchers and developers used wikis for rapid development of ideas, but this has extended to project managers and others in more traditional business disciplines.
