Case story – Enterprise Search with SharePoint Server 2013

It’s not a completely new presentation, this one. But since it was one of the largest search implementations I have been involved in (as Lead Platform Architect and Technical PM) on SharePoint 2013, it might be relevant.

The presentation is made by my good friend, Petter Skodvin-Hvammen, who was driving Search Architecture in the project and is one of the most skilled Search experts I know.


Governance session at SharePoint & Office 365 Saturday in Paris



I returned from a trip around Europe this week, speaking at the Paris 2015 SharePoint & Office 365 Saturday Conference, among other Things. I promised some of you to share my slides in the blog and give a quick trip-report.

First of all I want to thank the Guys behind the Paris event. SharePoint Saturday events are unique to the community of SharePoint, and I really believe that the community effort in events like this is a cornerstone in the success of SharePoint. The community is big, and even so I always meet old friends and colleagues in these events – Paris was no different there.

The site was different though. We met Saturday morning at the 40th floor of the Tour de Montparnasse, overlooking the entire citiy of Paris on a beautiful and clear day. After the mandatory coffee and croissant I got to chat with some of the most talented SharePoint Guys in Europe; Bill Ayers, Mathias Elming, Hans Brender, Paolo Pialorsi, Martina Grom, Chirag Patel among others. Always great inspiration and fun…WP_20150530_08_01_51_Pro (2)

The view from the Speakers lounge – towards Tour Eiffel was spectacular.

My talk was “Making SharePoint governance Work for Business, IT and users” – showing methodologies and processes that have proven to work for companies, that have decided to implement governance around SharePoint; it’s applications, it’s infrastructure and it’s users, content & information. The presentation is available for download here:

I finished my visit to Paris with a run around the streets on Sunday morning, only to see the “No Finish Line” race going on in the park by the Tour Eiffel. The concept is to run any number of laps and earn 1 EUR per lap sponsored by the race sponsors. Great chance to do something good for children AND for your self (keeping in shape) 🙂 I wanted to mention this great program; a cool and innovative way to raise funds for important projects – saving life’s and enabling possibilities for children – all around the world. You can be a part of that too! 🙂
