I have been asked by MetaVis to do a couple of presentations on information architecture design considerations when doing SharePoint migrations. If you’re not familiar with MetaVis and are an information architect or power user I suggest you check them out. They provide robust tools for information architecture creation, classification and migration.
I will be presenting with newly crowned MVP Dave Coleman. My part of the presentations will the overview and conceptual, and then Dave will show how that is implemented using MetaVis. Below are details on both webinars.
