White Paper Review: “Keep SharePoint Fast and Your Users Happy - The SharePoint Troubleshooting Guide”

Written by Inna Gordin. Posted in Editors' Thoughts

Earlier this month Idera published a white paper titled "Keep SharePoint Fast and Your Users Happy - The SharePoint Troubleshooting Guide", written by John Ferringer, a Senior Manager with Sogeti, LLC.  John has over eight years of experience administering and supporting SharePoint technologies and, as he states in this white paper, has "never seen the same problem twice".

I have substantial influence over the tools we use for sales and marketing, both internally and externally.

Written by Inna Gordin. Posted in SharePoint Product News

Documentation Toolkit for SharePoint is the first SharePoint add-on on the market that automatically documents all your SharePoint farm settings into a single document.

The primary use of the Documentation Toolkit for SharePoint is streightforward – automatically documenting all of SharePoint farm configuration settings into a single, properly formatted and structured Microsoft Word document.
