Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 provides a large number of capabilities that empower business users. For example, SharePoint Server 2010 enables users to collaborate with one another, tag and rate content, self-publish, and even develop their own solutions. With this amount of power in hand, users (and the organizations they work for) can benefit greatly from having clear guidance. In short, they can benefit from having a Governance Plan.
This white paper focuses on what we call the “front end” of the SharePoint environment – the business aspect of governance - the areas that effect business users. This white paper uses a fictitious company named Contoso to provide guidance for the necessary governance planning and implementation of SharePoint Server 2010.
