PLATFORM STRATEGY

So you have SharePoint, now what? This is a big question in many organizations throughout the country. Asking what can we do with it, what do we need to do with it, and where can we see the highest ROI is a very important step in solving business needs. In many organizations SharePoint is a solution in search of a problem. The truth is, the challenges that SharePoint can solve for these organizations are there, but companies might not have the resources to identify them, document the needs, and implement the solutions for which SharePoint is a great fit. The experts at Summit 7 Systems can help you overcome your biggest challenges and set a strategic roadmap to help your organization leverage the power of collaboration, Enterprise Content Management, Business Process Management, and any number of strategically important initiatives where SharePoint can demonstrate tremendous value as compared to other proprietary solutions.

JAY SIMCOX PRESENTING WEEK3 WEBINAR – MARCH 21 AT 10AM CST

Meeting the Challenges of Creating a Status Tracking System in SharePoint 2010

In this session, Jay will examine the challenges that are typically faced when a customer asks for that most dreaded of solutions, the Status Tracking System. Many of us will actually know this system by another name, it might be; Configuration Management System, Change Control System, Task Management System, etc. Ultimately you have been asked to create not just a system that allows users to manage and track the status of some form of task or issue but also a dashboard that provides management a central location to view a snapshot of those tasks or issues. We will briefly discuss the decision points that we faced as part of the design process for this specific application, the components of the chosen solution and how those components interact with each other. In addition we will show how you can create an auto-numbering field for the InfoPath form we created for data submission and a simple dashboard to display information directly from the form submission with a graphical representation of the item status using SharePoint Designer 2010 and a Data View Web Part.

A lot of customers are asking us about what to do with the data. Microsoft’s guidance around the Exchange 2007 timeframe was to consider moving it into SharePoint.
