Content management problems solved efficiently with Microsoft SharePoint.

Experienced managers know that the best software package doesn’t always lead to a successful system–good planning and taking into account cultural considerations are what result in a great implementation. In fact, studies show that most SharePoint projects fail not because of the software, but because of poor implementation.
ECM with SharePoint goes beyond the “how to” of configuring SharePoint and shares practical guidance on how to ensure that a system is well designed and has strong user adoption. As a result it has advice you can use in content management projects on platforms other than SharePoint.
This guide is practical and has a great balance between planning, implementation, and end user adoption. Learn from the real world experience of White and Riley and avoid costly mistakes.

Meet the challenges of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) head on, using rich ECM features in SharePoint 2013. Two ECM experts will lead you and you will learn how to build a solid information architecture (IA) for managing documents, knowledge, web content, digital assets, records, and user-generated content throughout your organization. With examples and case studies based on the authors’ real-world experience, this practical book is ideal for CIOs, marketing executives, project managers, and enterprise architects.

    This is a free SharePoint book that describes best practices for fine-grained permissions (FGP) and how to use them within your organization when using SharePoint® Products and Technologies or Microsoft® SharePoint® 2010 Products.
