  14. Agenda • SharePoint Environment Overview • Social Collaboration History • Goal for Enterprise Collaboration (aka “Connect”) • Why My Sites / NewsGator? • Tour of Connect • Project Highlights

  15. SharePoint Environment • SharePoint 2001 in 2001 • Migrated from PCDOCS (DOCSOPEN) and Lotus Notes • Out of the Box search, some custom search applications • SharePoint 2003 • Skipped in corporate, adopted as a collaboration tool by Supply Chain • SharePoint 2007 in 2007 • Centralized farm serving domestic and international locations • SharePoint 2010 in 2010 • Strategic Partnership includes: • Technical Adoption Program (TAP) • Office Advisory Council (OAC) • Microsoft Business Division Advisory Council (MBDAC) • Multiple farms serving domestic and international locations

  16. Social Collaboration History • 2009: MOSS 2007 My Sites Pilot • As a result of the pilot, My Sites remained unlaunched, postponed until SharePoint 2010. • Social Business Team created (SBT) • Who: Strategic thought leaders and knowledge managers (CIO, VP, Director level) • Why: Collaborate around capitalizing on social media opportunities • Business Challenge: • Ability to search for and connect with people, communities, content • Facilitate employee networks • “Intuitively” fulfill the needs of a diverse audience • 2010, February: SharePoint 2010 My Site Pilot • Final conclusion - My Site OOTB features not mature enough • Collaboration Sub Team • Who: Tactical implementation team • Why: To partner with IS, identify and prioritize requirements, champion the effort • 2011, January: SharePoint 2010 Connect BETA Launch

  17. Goal for Enterprise Collaboration Sponsor: ITQ Knowledge Discovery Services Goal: • Transform GMI into a globally connected organization – its people and its information • Profiles, Communities, Conversations, Search Expected Benefit: • Increased productivity - connecting with resources, faster • Reduced risk (internal hosting) • Global enterprise solution eliminates costs of multiple point solutions

  18. Why My Site / Newsgator? • My Site (SPS2010) alone was not mature enough, but provided a solid foundation • Benchmarking Results • SharePoint and Outlook Integration • Existing knowledge of SharePoint platform • OOTB Mobile offering • Microsoft is a strategic partner, long history with GMI

  19. What is Connect? “If only General Mills knew what General Mills knows!” “We have a strong hallway culture. How do we scale that around the world?” “I just wish there were one easy way to tap into all the knowledge that the General Mills community has.”

  20. What is Connect?

  21. Tour of Connect

  22. Mobile Offering

  23. Find and Follow Colleagues Easily find… • People • Communities • Topics of interest to you!

  24. Profiles

  25. Engage with Colleagues Globally Your newsfeed is where you can… • Share what you’re • working on • Ask a question • Have a conversation • Follow people and • topics you choose

  26. Common Communities Communities allow you to come together around common…

  27. Communities

  28. Search

  29. Project Highlights • Resources (IS) • 1 PM, 3 Architects/Developers, 2 contractors • 6 months • Initial budget of $0 • Launch Plan • BETA Wave 1 - 2 weeks. 600 users, IS • BETA Wave 2 - 2 weeks. 800 users, ITQ • BETA Wave 3 - 3 weeks, remainder of ITQ, select members of HR, Consumer Insights, and Sales • General Availability - Remain in BETA, quiet launch, grassroots

  30. Measures of Success • 100% of Tier 1 requirements (~140) delivered by general availability launch date • Systems function as expected with no disruption to current business process • Three completed BETA promotion iterations

  31. Project Successes • Beginning with Pilots (OOTB My Site 2007, 2010, OOTB NewsGator) • Stakeholder Involvement • BETA Releases – sets expectations • “Look pretty” - Brand Architecture, good cross functional representation • Frequent communication - prevented one off systems from sprouting up • External benchmarking – illustrated the need of FTEs to support platform • Internal benchmarking – illustrated support structure behind BettyCrocker.com to help show ongoing support needs – more than just a technical resource need • Buying software with the mobile offering – great additional business value

  32. Project Challenges • Resources • Aggressive Timeline • New Technology (SPS 2010) • Dependency on Microsoft’s and NewsGator’ssoftware releases • Started with no owner • LEGAL department • Design partner - lacked SharePoint experience. Next time engage a partner that had more SPS experience, deliverables should include more than Photoshop files – maybe completed SPS Master Page? • Allocate more time for the design process with the GMI collaboration team (this took about 1 month longer than expected)

  33. Outcome • So far so good! • 2,100 General Mills global Connect users • 1,800 questions • 1,500 documents • 500+ communities • Management team awarded top GMI award • Technical team awarded top IS award
