Despite the product's widespread usage, many organizations do not have a solid SharePoint strategy.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 20, 2012
CMSWire.com, a web magazine focused on information management, social business and customer experience management, is holding a Twitter-based gathering on August 22nd, known as a "Tweet Jam", to discuss how organizations can best leverage Microsoft’s SharePoint platform for collaboration and information management.
SharePoint has been described as a weed spreading through department after department, implemented for a variety of purposes, in a variety of manners. This event will explore whether or not this a good thing.
According to recent research, despite widespread usage, many organizations do not have a solid SharePoint strategy and this inevitably has lead to problems. However, when implemented properly, with a solid strategy behind it, SharePoint can be a powerful platform.
On Wednesday, August 22nd at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 18:00 BST the CMSWire editors and guest panelists welcome the broader community to spend an hour discussing SharePoint’s usage in the organization, the best adoption and governance strategies and, of course, the impact of the Yammer acquisition and the SharePoint 2013 release.
These questions will shape the dialog:
1. What is SharePoint 2010's best feature and why?
2. What factors have been the most important for adoption of platforms like SharePoint?
3. Is the slow rate of SharePoint releases a problem for Microsoft? What about customization of versions, is this a concern?
4. Name three steps required for a successful SharePoint governance strategy.
5. What challenges do SharePoint service providers face?
6. What is the most exciting aspect of SharePoint 2013?
All experience levels are welcome to join the event.

Tweet Jam Participation Guidance
Twitter is a highly flexible medium. In order to keep the discussion useful and focused, participants should follow these guidelines:
- Participants should introduce themselves with their first #EIMChat tweet. Include name, job title and the organization.
- Subsequent tweets must start with the question number the comment relates to and contain the #EIMChat hashtag. For example, "@bigbird Q5 Social Business is shifting work processes and communications all over Sesame St #EIMChat"
- Participants should not pitch products or services; stay knowledge focused
- Keep the discussion professional, but informal
- Remember that this is a public chat -- be thoughtful
