Centralized around teaching organizations how to apply strategies and structures needed to share and manage corporate information on the SharePoint platform, AIIM introduced its newest SharePoint Certificate Program today.
AIIM, a non-profit organization focused on managing documents, records, content and business processes, partnered with enterprise content and records management firm Gimmal Group to develop the program.
"While Microsoft and their partners provide organizations with technical training on the product, they don't provide guidance on the information management implications of the documents shared and stored within its libraries and team sites," said Bob Larrivee, AIIM director and advisor, in a statement.
He added, "Developed independent of Microsoft, [the program] identifies the elements of successful implementation and teaches organizations how to assess when they need complementary solutions to enhance their information management environments."
The Certificate program is suitable for information management professionals, IT professionals, business analysts, line-of-business managers and consultants, according to a statement. It is available online or in public and private classrooms. SharePoint 2007 and technologies that extend SharePoint are covered as well.
