The workforce is becoming increasingly mobile – at home through telecommuting, on business trips, in sales, and in servicing. There is also an increasing expectation by customers, suppliers and partners that business be conducted in real time. Research by AIIM indicates that at least 70% of organizations have deployed SharePoint in some shape or form over the past year. According to IDC, more than 1.19 billion workers of the global workforce, will be using mobile technology by 2013.
Has your organization responded to this growth in mobile workforce? Is your business content available and accessible from anywhere, on any device, and at any time? If not, why not?
During this event, we will cover the following items:
- SharePoint 2013 and various mobile options
- Device channels and responsive web designs
- Mobile BI architecture and development considerations
- How to go and solve the challenges in Mobile BI

I had the opportunity to attend the SharePoint 2013 Development Session, at the Microsoft Technology Center in Mountain View, yesterday. This was another great session hosted by Netwoven. I spoke with Niraj, President of Netwoven, and he indicated there will be many more free sessions this year. This is another way for you to gain new insight in to SharePoint 2013 as Netwoven has some very sharp individuals delivering the material.
I would invite you to keep an eye on the Events section of their site to see what’s coming next!
Thank you Niraj and Netwoven…
After configuring Personal sites, in SharePoint 2013, I learned the Organization Chart was not being displayed in the About Me section. After some investigation, I learned the Organization Chart in your own personal site is hidden intentionally. Microsoft indicated they did this to improve the page load performance. When you visit other individuals personal site, you will see the organization chart web part.
There is no simple workaround; changing this will require customization.
When I learn more about the type of customization required to accomplish this, I will post it!
I will be delivering another session at the Silicon Valley SharePoint User Group this Month! I am looking forward to seeing you at this free event…
So we can best prepare and to make sure we have enough food, please RSVP by sending an email to Don Lamure at firstname.lastname@example.org
In past sessions, we have learned about the need to deliberately architect and design solutions in SharePoint, improving storage/management and findability. In this session I will discuss and demonstrate how to effectively apply data and site structure taxonomies using SharePoint technologies. I will describe and demonstrate techniques and best practices for implementing a content type hub, content type structures, metadata, managed metadata and the term store. In addition, I will demonstrate how these techniques improve the storage and management of content, promote a higher degree of search result relevancy and produce aggregate content views to support various contextual needs.
