Applied Knowledge Group’s Adoption Expertise Cited in Successful FAA SharePoint Program

February 20, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Applied Knowledge Group, Inc.’s (AKG) assistance was cited in the February 2006 CorasWorks® e-newsletter Workplace Monthly as a cornerstone of the highly successful Microsoft SharePoint implementation at the Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA’s Knowledge Services Network is built on a SharePoint platform and has grown from a modest start of 30 active users to over 22,000 today.

Building their SharePoint adoption strategy around the four pillars of People, Process, Technology and Learning, Ronald Simmons led the FAA to set the stage to become known for its users’ high level of adoption and innovation. At the recent Microsoft Public Sector CIO Summit, the FAA’s KSN implementation, with Mr. Simmons at the helm, was cited as a “flagship” adoption program for SharePoint implementation.

The FAA considers its success directly linked to the fact that with the help of AKG they have tapped the user-friendly features of SharePoint and carefully created an environment that encouraged innovation at the workgroup level. By supplying the necessary tools to allow various project leaders to deploy a SharePoint solution to meet their specific business needs, the FAA set the stage for improved collaboration, even among widely dispersed workers.
