I’m lucky enough to be speaking at this years SharePoint Best Practices 2011 conference in London between 11th and 13th of April. Catch my session on Monday 11th April between 10 and 11 in the ‘Wesley’ room.
My session is part of the popular community track, see the full agenda for all the other top sessions planned.
My session is called ‘Putting you at the centre of Tesco’ and will be covering the SP2010 implementation for Tesco. This system is a new collaboration platform covering 16 countries, up to 50,000 end users by 2011. The design of this intranet is quite different from traditional business unit focussed implementations that represent the business hierarchy. For Tesco we have used the MySite as the default landing page for every user so that they get a fully personalised view of their Tesco role. Centred around the SP2010 activity feed system the home page displays activity from not only the OOB social and profile information but also extensions for ECM data. The activity feed has been extended to display activity within the team collaboration spaces giving the user a real flow of activity from their teams into one place.
