Free BFMA Member Webinar: SharePoint from the Form's-Eye View
Presented by Steve Weissman, Executive Director of the Holly Group
Like it or not, the advent of e-forms and the Web long ago began punching holes through the wall that once separated forms management from IT. We can lament the trend all we want, but the fact is that forms programmed and used on-screen are now routinely taking the place of forms that are designed and filled on paper – and they are being created and managed by people who aren't you!
The wild popularity of Microsoft SharePoint is accelerating this dynamic by making information management in general – and e-forms (via InfoPath) by extension – appear to be just so easy. It's not, but the phenomenon is so big that today's forms professional ignores it at his or her own peril.
This presentation discusses why Sharepoint is part of so many conversations, what is most compelling about it, and where to find and exploit the intersections with core forms philosophy. Led by Holly Group Executive Director Steve Weissman, the session is a "must" for anyone seeking to thrive in today's changing environment.
