I'd like to announce the release of my Technical Whitepaper on SharePoint Content & Application Lifecycle Management Guidance.
With organizations expanding their usage of SharePoint as a development and web infrastructure platform, managing team development, release cycles, and updates across distributed SharePoint farms can be a complex undertaking. To make sense of this Lifecycle, Mr. Thake reviews a variety of considerations, including:
- A review of SharePoint Assets
- Architectural Considerations
- Team Development
- SharePoint Application Lifecycle Maturity Model
- Deployment options for solutions, content, and other artifacts
This document took a lot of effort and I appreciate the support from RepliWeb with this. I'd be interested to hear your feedback on it, so please leave it below in the comments. There's lots of great info in there with plenty of references to great community content that made me able to collate this into one white paper. Thanks to Chris O'Brien for his feedback as I know that this is a topic dear to his heart.
Please register for your free copy of the whitepaper at RepliWeb's web site here. If you don't want to fill out the registration details to get this white paper, please ping me and I will send you the document directly.
I am already writing an update for this for SharePoint 2010, this will be available in due time.
