SharePoint for Communicators White Paper - Summary

SharePoint for Communicators White Paper: From Content to Planning. A white paper by Toby Ward, Founder, Prescient Digital Media. A look at the essentials and the dos and don'ts for managing communications and content in SharePoint and Office 365.

In short, SharePoint is part enterprise content management (ECM) solution, part portal solution, part web development platform, part social media platform and a good portion of a complete digital workplace solution. It offers many, many solutions and functions – often too much for most organizations to grasp – but it is Microsoft’s hope that it will become everything to everybody including the defacto platform for the company intranet, website(s) and extranet(s). In sum, it is an amazingly powerful solution, but often fails to live up to expectations for key components such as web content management.

It’s the perfect solution, if you have an abundance of time, patience... and money.

In this white paper, employee communicators and corporate communications staff will learn:

- How to prepare and plan for SharePoint
- The latest and greatest collaboration tools
- Content management in SharePoint
- Policies & standards to support the communications and content processes
