    This past Friday we had a very well attended session at Microsoft Canada on BI and BCS in SharePoint 2010.  We were showing a health care client in the Microsoft Rapid Deployment Program for 2010.  Building of KPIS, scorecards, and reports in PerformancePoint was covered, as well as using BCS to read and update information in SQL.

    You can see more background on the session at Business Intelligence and Business Connectivity Services in SharePoint 2010.  A copy of the presentation can be downloaded here.

    The Toronto SharePoint camp was a great success on March 20th.  Life's been busy since so I've been a little tardy on my postings.  Details on the session itself can be found in my previous post, and the slide deck can be downloaded from this post.

    The second annual Toronto SharePoint Camp is coming on Saturday March 20th.  Details and registration can be found at  We are a Gold Sponsor, and have both myself and Joe Seguin ( speaking.

    I'll be talking about Extranets in SharePoint 2007 and 2010.  Here's a copy of my abstract.

    SharePoint is a platform not only for internal sites like Intranets and external sites like public web sites, but is also a great place to connect with customers, partners, vendors, and others outside your organization.  During this session you will learn some of the decision points when setting up your Extranet in SharePoint.

    • MOSS or WSS?
    • DMZ, firewalls, Forefront and security in general
    • Where are my user accounts?  AD or SQL forms-based authentication?  How do I setup forms-based authentication?
    • How do my business users setup sites and users?
    • Can I integrate it in with my back-end systems like Microsoft CRM?

    We will use real world SharePoint 2007 and 2010 examples to illustrate.  Extranets for Cadillac Fairview, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Heart and Stroke Foundation, and Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada will be shown.
