Build Compelling Intranets and Extranets with SharePoint 2010
Witnessed the birth of ‘Tahoe’ while at Microsoft (10 years). Blogging SharePoint since Point2Share, Fools-Day 2004. An Aussie-Brit who left Amsterdam for Pune, India.
How many people think they already have a compelling Intranet? Extranet?
How many people think that it’s SharePoint 2010 that will make their intranet more compelling?
How many people think I’m mad to take on a topic like this?
The first thing to say is there is no “Silver Bullet” solution to “compelling”
The second thing to say is that the technology is the easy bit
The third thing is that no two intranet/extranet solutions are the same
SharePoint is a pocket knife
With SharePoint 2010 you just get a whole lot more tools
Discoverability: Helping people find knowledge
End User Adoption: Encouraging users to use what’s there
Friction: Making things easy, decreasing the hurdles to using your solutions
Search Centric Solution and Search as Application Infrastructure
We are “hung up” on physical location
Maybe “Portals” are cool after all.
Let a thousand Portals bloom
Social, Metadata, everything you do is feedback on what you're doing
Make the best stuff “bubble” to the top
What if we had one big massive table with all of out Intranet data stored there?
CEO Blogging to drive adoption
One place to go to find new blog posts. Discoverability.
Blogs can come from anywhere. Physical location is NOT important
Have to make the best stuff “Bubble to the top”
Personal Dashboard helps you find the blogs you contribute to.
Centralised directory lists all the blogs in the organisation.
Creates hubs around Tags
Keeps your finger on the pulse, able to spot trends.
Getting people to use even the most amazing solutions is really hard
We are not the only people having this problem, lots of industries have user adoption problems
Lets try to drive user adoption Socially
Driving User Adoption Socially
We all hate Usernames and Passwords. This is friction.
If there is one thing we hate more, its managing peoples Usernames and Passwords
One thing more than even that is being responsible for peoples Usernames and Passwords

Does the internet have governance policies for end users?
I see more harm done by restricting features than by enabling them
