We will organize another BIWUG meeting on March 20th:
18:30 - 19:00 Registration and welcome
19:00 - 19:30 Infonic SharePoint Geo-Replicator (formerly known as iOra) by Patrick Fear & David Henderson, Infonic
Infonic’s Geo-Replicator solution provides Server to Server and Offline Replication of Microsoft SharePoint 2003 & MOSS 2007. We will share our experiences of Replicating Global MOSS deployments and the challenges facing customers with varied understandings of the scope and capabilities of the MOSS platform. We will also discuss the marketplace perceptions of those customers who approach MOSS from a Network centric vs Content & Applications perspective and the impact this has in architecting global solutions. Finally, we will discuss some of the demand drivers from both Business & IT stakeholders in our global engagements and share why they are now viewing Replication as a key element for Business Continuity.
19:30 - 20:00 SharePoint as an application platform? Moderated by Joris Poelmans
This will be an open discussion about how you can use SharePoint as an application platform. How easy is it to extend SharePoint? What are the pitfalls? What are you still missing in SharePoint from a developer’s perspective? And what makes it hard to work with SharePoint to develop applications compared to plain vanilla ASP.NET development?
20:00 - 20:15 Break
