"SharePoint can lead to huge chaos"

Blogging from NZ's BrightStar Intranet conference, Michael provides a summary of Chandima Kulathilake's presentation on SharePoint governance. Kulathilake is a Microsoft SharePoint specialist and explains how "SharePoint can lead to huge chaos":

  • Site proliferation ... no plans
  • Server proliferation ... people and groups doing their own thing
  • Technology proliferation ... many different tools, where do you put things?

Since this warning comes from a SharePoint specialist, don't say you haven't been warned. Of course, IMHO governance should ideally be addressed before you pick your solution. In a brown field site its quite likely that SharePoint overlaps with other existing solutions, which can only add to the chaos that if left unchecked it will create.
