Welcome to SPSamer’s Blog…
SharePoint has been out for more than fifteen years now and is just reaching it’s maturity. Along the way, it has increasingly been touted as the be-all-end-all of enterprise platforms and also has been the source of endless user frustration. These two experiences often go hand-in-hand, as users expect more they often are frustrated when they are not sure how to achieve thier expectations or how things are done in SharePoint are not as simple as their expectations. This is because SharePoint is a very complex and broad platform aimed at providing Collaboration, Content Management, Business Processes and Intelligence, Portals, Search, Composites, Communities, Security, Customization, a Services platform, and more. Along with all this capability comes lots of complexity. Add to this patches, service packs, multi-server platforms, Office 365/SharePoint Online, SharePoint and cloud hosted Apps, Azure AD integration, hybrid on premise/cloud scenarios, global deployments, zones, encryption, client Office integration, and cross browser support, it is inevitable that there will be lots of problems.
Not to fear; for every problem in SharePoint, there is either a solution or a work-around. I have spent the last ten years coming up with solutions and work-arounds to every problem that SharePoint has throw at us. I will be adding many of those solutions and work-arounds and all things SharePoint to this blogs. I will delve into the trials and turbulations that is SharePoint and Consulting with you. I hope that you find solutions to make your SharePoint travels a bit easier. Please visit the Table of Contents section to see some of my featured blogs.
As for me, I have spent more than the last twenty years configuring computers and developing applications, mostly web based. For more than the past ten years, I have focused primarily on SharePoint, providing consultation, architecture, design, configuration, integration, implementation, support, and training on all things SharePoint.
In my previous life, I was a Wireless Engineer and worked on Telephone, Radio, and Avionic systems for large telecommunications and consulting firms and for the US Air Force. I graduated from the Pennsylvania State University with Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering focusing on Communications and Networking. In my spare time, I like traveling, cooking, football, and squash. I also enjoy spending time with my wife chasing my kids around our home.
I look forward to helping you through your SharePoint travels.
