Creating Taxonomy Vision Statements and Policies are great ways to communicate the importance of managing and maintaining a clean taxonomy throughout your portal lifecycle.
A Requirements “Traceability Matrix” allows you to trace business, functional, and technical requirements back to the Business Cases you made earlier. It’s a great measure for progress and success.
So, you’ve been drawing up your plans (blueprints) for your portal “home”. Now, it’s time to add the electrical, plumbing, and other technical specifications.
Can you build it? YES, YOU CAN! Get your “how-to” hat on, because we’re going to pick it up a notch and make some VISIBLE progress with real deliverables!
Creating step-by-step documents on how your farm was built not only makes it easier to rebuild in a pinch, but you’ll be a hero to others who may be responsible for it once you get promoted!! (hint, hint)
I received a few requests about more specific information on Logical Architecture. So, I compiled the questions I received and am answering them in this post. Thank you! – to those who made the request.
Ok, so you ran Setup. Brilliant! Now, let’s do some core configuration and bring this portal to life! These are the BASICS, so Tech Junkies – move on!
Break out the white gloves, fine-toothed comb, and your magnifying glass! It’s time to test out your portal and see if you pass the inspection!
Set yourself up for success! Create a Testing Plan, so you can document your successes and correct your failures before launch!
Don’t forget to gather feedback after you build the portal and BEFORE you launch. Last minute tweaks and feature additions can make a big difference!
You tested (and maybe re-tested). After documenting the results, we still have some work before launch. Let’s button everything up!
Countdown to launch! 5-4-3-2-1-BLASTOFF!! Hang on tight! This will be a fun week, but there’s still LOTS to do!
