Application Lifecycle Management for SharePoint in the Enterprise


​SharePoint has become mission critical, complex, and wide-ranging in most enterprises. How do we apply the best practices of ALM in this environment? In this session I cover the following:

  • System Center Virtual Machine Manager and AutoSPInstall to quickly provision dev, test, and production farms by leveraging HyperV
  • Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server to manage an Agile Scrum team
  • Build servers and automated testing to create a continuous integration environment
  • Moving code and content in both directions through a dev/test/prod lifecycle
  • How to capture as much of the SharePoint configuration in components that can be deployed, rather than manual steps

The goal is to build a change management process that merges the content authored in production with the code written in development effectively. 

​Key Learnings

  • How to create an environment to support your SharePoint Development and QA teams
  • Agile and continuous integration in a SharePoint environment
  • The value of automated testing
  • Demonstration
  • Provisioning of test environments through SCVMM
  • Live automated build and test scenario

The Application Lifecycle Management for SharePoint in the Enterprise deck is available for download.
