Microsoft’s direction for enterprise social is a little more clear this morning.  And I’ll be honest, the roadmap for organizations willing to move this workload to the cloud—in whole or in part—is pretty exciting.  Questions still remain around just how well this approach covers on-premise deployments, however, and I’d like to spend a little time […]

NewsGator Activity Feed Dissected

Don’t worry, no blood was spilled and no activity feed was harmed in the making of this blog post. The diagrams below apply to NewsGator activity feeds from Versions 2.6 and 3.1. The classes labeled in orange were added in v3.1. The Share box was re-done in 3.1, so the 1st one is v2.6 and […]

Tales of a SharePoint 2013 Upgrade: Information Architecture Remapping

Recently I led a team from Perficient to upgrade our existing SharePoint 2010 intranet (The Hub) to SharePoint 2013.  That process involved months of planning culminating in a solid week of fretting as the migration took place over several days.  Since everyone on the team is involved with client work, we couldn’t in good conscience […]

(This post is Part 2 in a two-part series.  For Part 1, click here.)
