Governance continues to be one of the most vital and talked-about topics within the global Microsoft SharePoint community in 2012. As a part of its Predicts 2012 series, Gartner predicted that by 2016, 20 percent of CIOs in regulated industries will lose their jobs for failing to implement the discipline of information governance successfully. This is a strong statement, but, based on my time working with organizations around the world on the subject, also no great surprise.
Recently, I blogged about my experience at Share 2012 in Atlanta, including moderating a panel entitled Real World SharePoint Governance with experts Sarah Haase, Susan Hanley, Richard Harbridge, and Adam Quinn. I’m happy to share that video footage of the entire lively and informative discussion is now available here. Watch the discussion to gain insights, advice, and a nice variety of perspectives on the topic that can help you implement effective SharePoint governance at your organization.
For more on SharePoint governance, I also recommend visiting Microsoft’s Governance in SharePoint 2010 resource center on TechNet. TechNet also hosts a two-part presentation from AvePoint Chief SharePoint Evangelist Dan Holme which dives deep into governance:
· SharePoint Governance, Part I: Architecting SharePoint for Scalability and Enforceable Governance
· SharePoint Governance, Part II: Automating SharePoint Governance and Management
