Sunday, 04 February 2007 00:23:45 (GMT Standard Time, UTC+00:00) ( Arquitecturas | TechDays07 )

Este ano no TechDays temos alguns eventos dentro do evento. Assim um dos que tem suscitado mais perguntas é o desconhecido "TSLOI" - A Vida Social da Informação.

Trata-se um evento para Arquitectos e Decisores onde o Beat Schwegler nos apresenta uma visão sobre a gestão de informação nos nossos dias.

Uma vez que se calcula que uma organização (não) têm cerca de 80% da sua informação em portáteis, memory sticks, CDROM, e outros equipamentos pessoais. Então como é que uma organização materializa conceitos como o Self-publishing (sites, wikis, rss, listas, blogs, docs, excel services,...), o Search (docs ad-hoc, DBs estruturadas, pessoas, sites, classificação, ...), os Processos (Forms, Workflow, Notificações, ...)? As sessões são uma viagem por todos estes temas, com um foco no utilizador desta geração 2.0, na usabilidade e no poder da massificação das ferramentas.

A comunidade de Arquitectos já o conhece pois em 2006 apresentou-nos as "Software Factories" cá em Lisboa, e desta vez não vai deixar de nos presentear com uma excelente apresentação, bem ilustrada com exemplos práticos que todos podemos implementar e demonstrar aos colegas no trabalho (ou não fosse esta uma sessão sobre Social Networking).

Junto a descrição "oficial":

The Social Life of Information


For too long, the industry just focused on the backend aspects of information. We made great progress in modeling, storing and transmitting information across our corporate landscape. However, humans are not directly interacting with middleware and servers but they collaborate with different front-ends and devices while participating in prescribed and adhoc processes and workflows. This forum takes a closer look at the technical and social challenges of such collaborating solutions and discusses how Microsoft addresses these challenges with 2007 Office System. Namely, we’re going to have an architectural look at the following aspects of 2007 Office System:

· Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0
Windows Sharepoint Services build the foundation of 2007 Office Sharepoint Server. The newly designed and re-architected Sharepoint Services 3.0 are built on top of ASP.NET 2.0. Through this change in architecture, concepts like master pages, authentication providers or web-parts are now also available within Sharepoint Services and Sharepoint Server Solutions.

· Collaboration
Beside many other things, the new Office platform provides an infrastructure for team sites, workflows, list and document libraries. Through this infrastructure, users can easily create and maintain their own Blogs or Wiki’s or can subscribe to site changes through RSS subscriptions.

· Portal
Portal solutions support important aspects for enterprises such as search across different WSS instances, people management (incuding audience and role management). Through the business datat catalog (BDC), line of business (LOB) data can be reflected within the portal itself, and this without custom coding.

· Search
In addition to search across the different sharepoint sites, 2007 Office System provides the powerful capability to index and search line of business (LOB) data using the business data catalog (BDC) and therefore provides search capabilities across list and document libraries as well as the integrated backend systems.

· Content Management
2007 Office System supports document management capabilities as well as web content management. Key capabilities of document management solutions are content organization, policies enforcement, workflow support and a rich authoring experience.

· Business Processes
Business processes can easily be implemented using the integrated workflow support of Windows Sharepoint Services. In addition to this, the InfoPath form services provide a great way to capture data as part of an overall process.

· Business Intelligence
BI is an integrated part of the Office System platform. Whether this is in the form of dashboards, key performance indexes (KPI), Excel Services or the report center, the office platform provides an infrastructure to display and manage reports and BI information in one central place.
