I’m focusing on the basic Intranet because nobody else is and I think a lot of people need help with it.
I LOVE TEAMS, and all the other advanced functionality O365 includes.
I believe you need a solid foundation in SharePoint before you can take advantage of the more advanced stuff.
If you try moving to the advanced stuff without a solid foundation, the experience isn’t going to be so great for users and there is a high failure rate.
- If an organization thinks their SharePoint intranet sucks, it is unlikely they’re going to consider moving into more advanced services, like file storage, let alone TEAMS.
- If you move into TEAMS without having File Storage figured-out, you’re going to have a mess on your hands.
- Think about the confusion with a traditional file server, governance, legal holds, duplicate files, and all those issues we already deal with on traditional file servers.
- Metadata plays a big part in TEAMS and modern security.
- If your organization isn’t currently applying metadata to all their stuff, you’ll need this to happen.
- You could implement a metadata initiative WITH TEAMS.
- Or you could step into it with a Modern integrated Meta-driven intranet, and THEN implement TEAMS.
- I think there’s a ton of businesses out there that need to start at the beginning and demonstrate to decision-makers how great SharePoint can be.
- This will open the door for TEAMS
It is really a matter of building-up an organization’s technology literacy, in a way that makes sense and that doesn’t choke things.
A great modern integrated intranet seems to be the best first step to me.
Focusing on the basic intranet is my way of getting you to a place where TEAMS can be successful.
