Questions important to ask when understanding and designing solutions for enterprise customers

Architecting Solutions and SystemsThis week I had the chance to attend the San Diego SharePoint User Group meeting a.k.a @sanspug at the Microsoft San Diego Office. Good to see people interested in the topic Architecting Solutions and Systems presented by Randy Williams. Randy is a Director of AvePoint Client Services so you can tell the level and weight of the presenter, additional he is a great speaker able to have you totally focus and interested in a given topic for hours. Randy explained his take on the steps to consider for architecting solutions and services, he shares some of the questions that are really important to ask ourselves whenever we need to understand a business need and design a solution approach, also he explained some the base principles and technical consideration you should take:

  • Base Principles
    • Know your requirements
    • Tradeoff considerations
    • Return of Investment
  • Infrastructure Architecture
    • Servers
    • Storage
    • Databases
    • Network
  • Cloud Considerations
  • Tips from Randy

So I wanted to take the time to recommend Randy slides and kind of make the point that you should take a look at the content if you design IT solutions for enterprise customers.

San Diego SharePoint User Group

San Diego SharePoint User Group

In even the most creative SharePoint implementation plan, we cannot escape one reality we all face:  the user.  Though the most difficult part of most projects to understand, the user plays a critical part in the success of an overall deployment. In this session, we are going to look closely at new strategies which can be implemented (or improved) in 2013 around understanding our users, building solid user interfaces to support them and deploying them in a manageable way.  Each step of the way, Virgil will give attendees a firm understanding of how these strategies can be accomplished in both a 2013 and current 2010 environment.
Creating your own Information Architecture best practices in SP2010/SP2013
In the session, Virgil will explore how to develop a solid information architecture strategy for the different aspects of your SharePoint implementation, including collaboration sites, portals and processes.  After creating firm IA objectives, the rest of the session will explore how these best practice implementations would differ from SharePoint 2010 to 2013.  The session will compare/contrast the feature sets and discuss how to take advantage of both to deliver a user-centric SharePoint experience.

Bring your questions and see you there!
