WSS: overview • Windows Share. Point Services 3. 0 – A more advanced “MOSS WSS: overview • Windows Share. Point Services 3. 0 – A more advanced “MOSS 2007” exists • A platform for collaborative applications – Share information and documents • “Content Management System” • Not limited to web content – Facilitate team work • Integrates with Office (2007) – Though any modern web browser is sufficient CERN - IT Department CH-1211 Genève 23 Switzerland www. cern. ch/it

Motivations • Share. Point was initially investigated for internal use in the Internet Services Motivations • Share. Point was initially investigated for internal use in the Internet Services group – Replacement for NNTP newsgroups: web forums – Replacement for mailing list archives • Exchange Public Folders deprecated in Exchange 2007 • Search and Threading capabilities – Several options evaluated, Share. Point selected • Share. Point answers other needs – Replacement for “Front. Page sites” • 3700 FPSE sites at CERN • Microsoft initially planned no such sites in IIS 7! – Repeating user requests for advanced web features • Forums, wiki, web forms, image libraries, blogs… • Users invest a lot of time developing custom solutions CERN - IT Department CH-1211 Genève 23 Switzerland www. cern. ch/it

Motivations • Benefits for the Internet Services group – Stop NNTP service (Linux + Motivations • Benefits for the Internet Services group – Stop NNTP service (Linux + Exchange) – Allow stopping deprecated PF by moving mailing list archives (needed for next version of Exchange) – Evolution of the Front. Page sites – All 3 services merged into one! – Seamless integration with AD/mailing lists • End-user benefits – Single interface for newsgroups, list archives, forums • With new features: RSS – Improvements of web hosting services • Easy access to advanced features: forums, wiki, forms • Excellent integration with MS Office • Support for “External Accounts” CERN - IT Department CH-1211 Genève 23 Switzerland www. cern. ch/it

Use cases • Discussion forums – And replace NNTP, mailing list archives • Web Use cases • Discussion forums – And replace NNTP, mailing list archives • Web forms – Typical trio: web form/database/view page – Questionnaires/surveys (statistics) • Shared folders “a la Outlook” – Calendars, contact lists, task management • Collaboration work on documents – Administration, HR, procedures, etc. • Documentation – FAQ, Q&A, help pages, wiki… • Community sites – Clubs, picture libraries, social events… CERN - IT Department CH-1211 Genève 23 Switzerland www. cern. ch/it

Collaboration workspaces • Provide the vanilla functionality of Windows Share. Point Services 3. 0, Collaboration workspaces • Provide the vanilla functionality of Windows Share. Point Services 3. 0, out-of-the-box • “Collaboration workspace” is a new site type in central web site management system • Very little emphasis on Share. Point Designer – People encouraged to use web interface only CERN - IT Department CH-1211 Genève 23 Switzerland www. cern. ch/it • ~200 sites so far (pilot started in March 2007)

User education • Article in CERN IT publication (CNL) • Seminars – 1000 invitations User education • Article in CERN IT publication (CNL) • Seminars – 1000 invitations sent, 120 attendees • Technical Training • Few help pages – CERN specificities – Send users to relevant online guides/tutorials CERN - IT Department CH-1211 Genève 23 Switzerland www. cern. ch/it

CERN customizations • Support for non-IE browsers – Telerik Rad. Editor (cross-platform WYSIWYG) • CERN customizations • Support for non-IE browsers – Telerik Rad. Editor (cross-platform WYSIWYG) • FAST component for intranet search • Custom SOAP administration service – Communication with central Web. Services • Custom Share. Point “feature” – Apply CERN settings on new sites and subwebs • Maintenance tasks with Powershell scripts – Message expiration in CERN Market – Export internal documentation to static files CERN - IT Department CH-1211 Genève 23 Switzerland www. cern. ch/it

CERN theme • Official colors and logo (CSS + images) • Theme only: no CERN theme • Official colors and logo (CSS + images) • Theme only: no change of layout • Additional theme in theme gallery CERN - IT Department CH-1211 Genève 23 Switzerland www. cern. ch/it Presentation title - 16

Technical details • “Farm” approach (scalability) – 1 web front-end – 1 SQL 2005 Technical details • “Farm” approach (scalability) – 1 web front-end – 1 SQL 2005 database server • Disaster recovery – Rely on SQL backups • 1 daily full + log backup every 3 h • Will review Share. Point specific products – Took a long time to figure out and test! – Need separate farm for individual site restore • Can restore site state at any point-in-time • Never requested so far CERN - IT Department CH-1211 Genève 23 Switzerland www. cern. ch/it

Integration with other apps • Central Web. Services site – Site management, creation, ownership Integration with other apps • Central Web. Services site – Site management, creation, ownership • CERN “official theme” • Simba mailing list system – Permission management, invitations • CERN External Accounts • Intranet Search (FAST) • Indico – Via RSS feeds CERN - IT Department CH-1211 Genève 23 Switzerland www. cern. ch/it

Point forums to store messages Benefits: search, threading, RSS Rely on Share. Point mail integration features Powershell script to fix timestamp during migration

Wish-list • Integration with web Single-Sign-On – Hooks exist but development effort needed – Wish-list • Integration with web Single-Sign-On – Hooks exist but development effort needed – Difficult to keep Office integration working! • Web. DAV – Manipulate files from any platform • Better cross-platform support – Pictures, WYSIWYG… – Mostly OK with Firefox, some issues with Safari CERN - IT Department CH-1211 Genève 23 Switzerland www. cern. ch/it

Demo • CERN Market – Externals • Site creation – Compose home page – Demo • CERN Market – Externals • Site creation – Compose home page – Content types – Contact list + add custom columns + connect to Outlook – Create a questionnaire CERN - IT Department CH-1211 Genève 23 Switzerland www. cern. ch/it

Conclusion • Share. Point allowed consolidation of existing services • Empowers end users (non-experts Conclusion • Share. Point allowed consolidation of existing services • Empowers end users (non-experts in particular) to build themselves simple collaborative solutions – Just from a web browser – Simpler: reduced support load from IT – Without development in IT • Emphasis on saving time CERN - IT Department CH-1211 Genève 23 Switzerland www. cern. ch/it – Quick publication, no web editor software needed – Automatic theme/navigation/links etc.
