How many times have you been told the solution to your SharePoint 2013 needs require custom .NET development? Unfortunately, many consultants and consulting firms resort to custom .NET development because they are unfamiliar with how to truly architect solutions in SharePoint 2013. Granted, a certain amount of custom .NET development is required for most implementations; however, having a thorough understanding of how to architect your information to support business contextual needs, is the key to dramatically reducing those custom efforts and gaining more long-term value.
The truth is, most SharePoint Intranet, Document Management, Knowledge Management, Records Management and Collaboration solutions can be implemented with less than 10% custom development efforts. Implementing SharePoint 2013 using fundamental IA principals and techniques will reduce the need for custom development efforts, the cost of maintaining those efforts and the length of time you are tied to a consulting firm because of those efforts.

Olympic Unlimited has released a new version of their Microsoft Word export add-in for Mindjet 14, MindManager map files.
Named WordX, this add-in allows you to assign a specific Word template, mark topics for export then export your map.
As many of you already know, I use Mindjet 14 (MindManager) extensively to document SharePoint designs. The built-in export tools, found in Mindjet 14, do work but they provide limited functionality. I need the ability to specifically mark topics for export and assign specific export attributes.
I have exercised WordX extensively, with maps containing more than 5000 topics, and it works like a charm!
If you are a Mindjet user, this is a must have add-in.
I will write more on this topic in the near future. In the meantime, download a trial copy and give it a shot. I think you’ll be hooked…
Our Enterprise Data Taxonomy (Content Type Hub) Documentation, available in Mindjet’s MindManager and Microsoft Word formats, contains a complete data taxonomy designed to support day-to-day business operations.
Includes more than 300 enterprise content type and more than 600 enterprise metadata column definitions.
With the extensive data taxonomy design, you will receive complete documentation that includes all content types, metadata columns, enterprise termsets and guides to using the information.
This is the most comprehensive data taxonomy, specifically for SharePoint 2010/2013, available on the market today and will save you weeks (if not months) of design cost and time.
Includes 2 hours of virtual training.

SharePoint 2013 Collaboration in the Cloud – Office 365

- 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. – Session
- 7:30 – 8:00 p.m. – Q&A, Wrap-up
In this session, – Ulysses Lugwig, will discuss the following topics:
Office 365 has come out strong in 2013 with many organizations choosing to add Office 365 in their enterprise agreements with Microsoft. Where SharePoint 2010 and 2013 on premise both have promising features for external collaboration, many companies instead use box or dropbox due to firewall limitations, security, and complex forms based authentication that simply make SharePoint too complex. However, with this surge in Office 365 subscriptions, now pushing 100 million users’, there’s an incredible opportunity to start using SharePoint as an external collaborative tool. In this presentation we will show you real world examples of how organizations are using Office 365 for external collaboration including items such as branding, automatic document uploading, external sharing caveats, and, of course, custom application development.
