Agenda


SharePoint Environment
Overview



Social Collaboration History



Goal for Enterprise
Collaboration (aka “Connect”)



Why
My Sites / NewsGator
?



Tour of Connect



Project Highlights


SharePoint Environment


SharePoint 2001 in 2001


Migrated from PCDOCS (DOCSOPEN) and Lotus Notes


Out of the Box search, some custom search applications



SharePoint 2003


Skipped in corporate, adopted as a collaboration tool by Supply Chain



SharePoint 2007 in 2007


Centralized farm serving domestic and international locations



SharePoint 2010 in 2010


Strategic Partnership includes:


Technical Adoption Program (TAP)


Office Advisory Council (OAC)


Microsoft Business Division Advisory Council (MBDAC)


Multiple farms serving domestic and international locations



Social Collaboration History


2009: MOSS 2007 My Sites Pilot


As a result of the pilot, My Sites remained unlaunched, postponed until SharePoint
2010.


Social
Business Team
created (SBT
)


Who: Strategic thought leaders and knowledge managers (CIO, VP, Director level)


Why: Collaborate
around capitalizing on social media opportunities


Business
Challenge:


Ability
to
search for and connect with people
, communities, content


Facilitate employee networks


“Intuitively” fulfill the needs of a diverse audience



2010, February:
SharePoint 2010 My Site Pilot


Final conclusion
-

My Site
OOTB features not mature enough



Collaboration Sub Team


Who: Tactical implementation team


Why: To partner with IS, identify and prioritize requirements, champion the
effort



2011, January:
SharePoint 2010
Connect BETA Launch



Goal for Enterprise Collaboration

Sponsor:
ITQ Knowledge Discovery Services


Goal:


Transform GMI into a globally connected organization


its people and its
information


Profiles, Communities, Conversations, Search


Expected Benefit:


Increased productivity
-

connecting with resources, faster


Reduced risk (internal hosting)


Global enterprise solution eliminates costs of multiple point solutions




Why My Site / Newsgator?


My Site
(SPS2010) alone was not mature enough, but provided a solid
foundation



Benchmarking Results



SharePoint and Outlook Integration



Existing knowledge of SharePoint platform



OOTB Mobile offering



Microsoft is a strategic partner, long history with GMI




“I just wish there were one easy way to
tap into all the knowledge that the
General Mills community has.”

“If only General Mills knew what General
Mills knows!”

“We have a strong hallway
culture. How do we scale
that around the world?”

Aggressive Timeline


New Technology (SPS 2010)


Dependency on Microsoft’s and
NewsGator’s

software
releases


Started
with no
owner


LEGAL department


Design
partner
-

lacked
SharePoint
experience. Next time engage a partner that
had more SPS
experience, deliverables should include more than Photoshop
files


maybe completed
SPS Master
Page?


Allocate
more time for the design process with the GMI collaboration team (this
took about 1 month longer than expected)


Outcome


So far so good!
