15th May is the date for the next planned user group meeting. This is kindly being hosted by HP in Bracknell. Here's a run down of the topics that will be covered:
“Exchange 2007 and SharePoint 2007 – Living Happily Ever After?” – this highlights all the integration points between E2K7 and MOSS and question how robust they are in real life
Kevin Laahs: Senior member of the Technology Leadership Group within HP’s Consulting and Integration practice.
“A User Centred Approach to Designing Web Portals” – Given the CMS integration in MOSS, introduction of blogs, wikis, workflow and a whole host of user interaction within MOSS, designing web applications from a user perspective is essential. This talk will provide a view of techniques that can be used to design web portals (applicable to all web based apps – not specific to MOSS necessarily) with usability in mind:
Hina Keval: Usability Research Student, PhD at UCL Computer Sciences
“HP MOSS Sizing and Configuration Utility” – the HP utility for calculating MOSS server / farm architecture sizing and configuration of servers.
UPDATE FROM ANDY:
Unfortunately, the new MOSS Sizing tool is undergoing testing, so is not yet ready to be demonstrated in public.
Instead of this subject, I will present on MOSS performance, and highlight some of the differences the HP Test Lab has found between MOSS and SPS whilst working with Microsoft on sizing.
Andy Ginn: Senior HP Solution Architect
Venue: HP Bracknell: Amen Corner, Cain Road, Bracknell, Berks RG12 1HN
