Welcome to my SharePoint web site.
Who is this guy anyway?
I like to think that I approach the topic of SharePoint from a practical point of view. This isn't unique to me, however it provides you with a glimpse of the kind of content you might find in my blog. SharePoint is a large complicated platform. It can be intimidating and it can draw you into its complexities which can create extreme nerdiness. I am trying to avoid some of that nerdiness by focusing on the use and technical aspects of SharePoint in a practical manner. I am a SharePoint Administrator, "specialist", and IT Pro.
I was drawn in to SharePoint while working in a dual role as a Business Systems Analyst and Corporate Continuous Improvement Manager. The organization had been implementing LEAN for a couple of years before being introduced to SharePoint. As a long-term IT guy with new LEAN certifications, I immediately saw the connection between reducing waste and SharePoint capabilities. SharePoint could help organizations reduce waste, improve processes, and increase productivity. I think I said it first, back in 2007...SharePoint is a Green technology, and I stand by that statement today.
I was Honored by Christian Buckley to be included in his "One Thing" series while at the SharePoint Saturday Silicon Valley June 2012, the video: The One Thing: Tony Rockwell and SharePoint 2010.
What happened to the old site?
I migrated my blog
content from the old WordPress site to this snazzy SharePoint site. The
old wordpress site is still there, however I won't be updating blog
posts there anymore.
It just makes sense to blog about SharePoint using the technology.
