But this is not the reason for my post. This year my talk at the event covered how our organisation uses Microsoft's System Centre Operations Manager and AvePoint's DocAve Toolsets in our SharePoint environment. During my talk, and after, I discovered that organisations, and particularly the people running these toolsets, need more help in leveraging their investment in DocAve. I found a few people who indicated that need more information on how to use the system.
As a self-proclaimed DocAve Evangelist and keen user of the system I was saddened by this and have decided on a call to action. I'm happy to report that I am in discussions with AvePoint UK and we will soon be establishing a South African DocAve Community starting with the Cape Town Chapter. The goal is simple. Each one Teach one! Our intention is to create an online space where we can share ideas and then also meet face-to-face at least once a month perhaps at our offices. I believe this will greatly improve the skills of those who invested in this toolset to manage their on-premise SharePoint environments and assist those organisations who are considering toolsets to help them manage SharePoint.
Watch this space for updates.
