This was a great session that talked more about setting the expectation of what SharePoint really is, a Application Services Platform.
There isn’t one role but it takes a “village” of people to make it happen.
Making SharePoint Implementations Successful
In the presentation he went through the many roles it takes to successfully deploy a SharePoint platform. Thus, you must organize to capitalize. Below are the key roles needed:
- Operations Manager
- Solutions Architect (This is more of an EA role)
- Network Analyst
- Security Analyst
- Librarian and records manager (I think of this more as an Information Architect)
- Human Factors / UI Designer (I would call this UX Engineer or User Experience Designer)
- Community Leader
- Application Architect (Deep architect resource that know the bolts of SharePoint very well)
- Collaboration Manager
- Other IT Roles
