Social Intranet – The Intersection Diagram

February 25, 2011

Often in SharePoint 2010 implementations we see Portals, Team sites and Social sites being treated as separate conceptual entities. Although they have their own merits and add specific value individually, it is in “the intersection” where we find the ideal balance of flexibility, context and business alignment for open collaboration. Furthermore, in the intersection, the user experience allow us to easily flow between the different spheres and levels of formality.

Cloud Computing Paradigm Chart

August 4, 2009

After reading the NIST working definition of cloud computing, which made things more objective to me, I created this chart to provide a visual representation of the different concepts.

Maria Spinola’s white paper, “An Essential Guide to Possibilities and Risks of Cloud Computing“, does a great job covering the major points and is a great reference.

[Update – Feb 2011] A modified/updated version of my chart has been included in the NIST – Presentation on Effectively and Securely Using the Cloud Computing Paradigm v26 (thanks @petermmell).
