Large Notes2 SharePoint transformations do require a standardized approach in development and project management in order to assure the delivery in time and quality. The SharePoint Factory has been developed, to allow parallel development of applications and support all stages of the development process by having standardized quality gates, Test procedures and Templates e.g. for requirements analysis. Basically the SharePoint Factory can be compared to an assembly line in automotive industry. This approach is combined with a SharePoint PM as a Service offering which is a blueprint for the Management of Large Scale SharePoint projects and does provide a specific PM Process with SharePoint Centric Artefacts, Checklists and documents.
The approach has been developed within a 6.500 Personday Project in Germany and has already been published to German .net Magazin, SharePoint Kompendium and Dutch DIWUG Magazin.
This session was delivered at the SP24 Conference and was presented by Sebastian Gerling.
