On the 13th of April I presented at the European SharePoint Best Practices conference 2011. The session was titled Search Driven Knowledge Management and in the session we covered some of the SharePoint features available for structuring information so content is easy to find. As this was a community track session we looked at some real world projects that had information architecture requirements that didn’t line up with the out-of-the box SharePoint features. We looked at the requirements for these projects and I showed how solutions were built using a combination of the SharePoint features and customisations built on top of the SharePoint platform. This included using a search driven architecture and automating the tagging of content using the new content management features of SharePoint 2010.
I’ve posted the slides below as well as on SlideShare and will add some follow up posts covering the concepts and features I talked about to this blog in the near future.
