    Tuesday June 1st 2010 - SUGUK North West Meeting - ** UPDATED with Location **

    **** UPDATE ****


    Sorry for the delay in releasing the venue location for this meeting. We will be at the Manchester Conference Center, three minutes walk from Manchester Piccadilly Railway Station.



    For more information on location and directions click here: http://www.manchesterconferencecentre.co.uk/location


    I am very happy to announce the date of our next meeting in Manchester, Tuesday June 1st 2010


    The location is still to be confirmed, but rest assured it will be in central Manchester, within easy reach of all the major transport connections and roads. I will update this post when the location is confirmed, so don't be put off signing up until then.


    As usual the event will kick off at 6pm and go on till around 9pm where we can move on to a local pub for a SharePint.  Please ensure you register below with your full name to ensure your place.  The last 2 events have been full and if we need a larger room, we can book well in advance.


    We have the following 2 great sessions lined up:


    Neil Hodgkinson (MCM)
    How to maximise SharePoint search in your business.  This will be focussed around SharePoint 2010, but many of the business considerations can be applied back into your 2007 deployments, and allow you to design your current deployments with the future in mind.


    Dave Walmsley
    Dave will be talking us through a real life SharePoint case study where they implemented a solution for SJM Concerts, the leading independent UK concert promoter, and manage tours and events such as Take That, Coldplay, Muse and the V-Festival.


    Dave will explain how they used a wide range of SharePoint, Out-Of-The Box functionality, such as Document Management, Business Intelligence, Wikis, use of the BDC, and many third party applications to manage and share all information in a targeted way within the company, and with external partners.


    The presentation discusses many of the technical and business change challenges that were presented, the successes, the difficulties and some shortcomings of Sharepoint and lessons learnt. Importantly, it also shows how important it is to really understand business processes, site design and the basics of taxonomy before implementing technology, and how far you can get "out-of-the-box".


    Since the major focus is pushing SharePoint OOTB as much as possible, there should be a lot of learnings you can take back to your own businesses and projects.
