I'm thrilled to share the news that my team at BlueMetal has completed development of a beta version of an online self-assessment application for the SharePoint Maturity Model!
The purpose of the app is to make it easier for you to do a self-assessment on the maturity of your SharePoint implementation. After you step through the competencies and choose your levels, it generates a report of your results, and an additional report of those results compared to the global average:
No registration or login is required to take the assessment - just click the link and begin! Any identifying information you provide will be kept completely confidential.
We're especially excited because it's a completely Cloud-based solution, with the Silverlight front end living on a hosted SharePoint site (thanks to the folks at FPWeb), and the data stored in Azure. It was truly a team effort to produce, and I want to thank all the folks at BlueMetal who participated, as well as my distinguished panel of beta-testers, who are all well-known experts in the SharePoint community. Special recognition goes to Julie Turner, who built the application, and without whom it would not have been possible.
I'll be at SPTechCon San Francisco all week, where I'll be presenting three sessions as well as celebrating the launch of Mark Miller's book SharePoint 2010 at Work, released to print yesterday, which includes my chapter on SharePoint Maturity. If you'll be at the conference too, let's connect! And whether or not you're in San Francisco this week, I encourage you to find your levels, get your report, and build your roadmap to greater SharePoint maturity!
