The next London meeting will be held on Wednesday 1st June 2011 in Hammersmith. The evening will follow the usual format with two great presentations and a couple of books to give away:
18:00-18:30: arrive and network
18:30-19:30: Seb Matthews - SharePoint governance, the elephant in every room.
Even considering SharePoint as a subset of a wider governance plan you may have, it still has potential to be a huge effort in its own right. This session discusses some ideas, experiences and approaches used in the real world that will help to distil the concept of governance into its components to help you "chop up the elephant" and improve your chances for success. Not intended to be an answer for you, the concepts and ideas in this session should get you thinking about governance for SharePoint and how it can be applied to work for you.
19:30-20:00: Comfort break and time to get yourself a drink and a snack from the bar.
20:00-21:00: John Timney - Sharepoint 2010 Virtualisation
Sharepoint 2010 Virtualisation remains a hot topic and for many firms it is still as yet unexplored territory and the concepts surrounding virtualisation are pushing the knowledge boundaries for Sharepoint Infrastructure Architects, Administrators and Solution Architects into areas they thought they wouldn’t need to understand, away from the physical and into the conceptual. This presentation offers an introductory view of some of the important aspects to consider when thinking about utilizing virtualization in the Sharepoint 2010 world and considers reasons for virtualizing Sharepoint 2010, supported physical and virtual platform architectures, guidelines for choosing which aspects of farm to virtualize, support and the issues it brings, considers layered designs as an easy means of visualising virtual architecture and introduces conceptual Geo-DR.
The meeting will be held at Auriol Kensington Rowing Club
, 14 Lower Mall, Hammersmith, London, W6 9DJ. Following the presentations we we will retire to the downstairs bar for a SharePint or two.
