MS BPIO Technical Training for Sharepoint

So recently I was exposed to the MS Business Productivity Infrastructure Optimization (BPIO) University site which an associate from Microsoft (Michael) introduced me to. There seems to be two sides to the information presented one of them being the sales and the other being more technical/architectural based.

Personally I find the sales side really useful regarding sales presentation information which I often have to put together myself and sometimes taking hours to scour the net and formulate a decent deck of slides to present to an executive level to earn their buy in to the product or a particular facet of Sharepoint.

I have listed the sections contained within the sales material:

  1. Business Intelligence: Help improve the performance of your business—and those of your customers. Enable qualified employees to access business insight, so they can make better strategic and tactical decisions.
  2. Collaboration: Show customers how your offerings, built on Microsoft technology, can aid in simplifying processes, managing data, meeting complex compliance requirements, and ensuring that people are well connected—while protecting business-critical data.
  3. Enterprise Content Management: Assist your customers as they manage content and processes for Web authoring, forms, documents, and records. You can offer an integrated solution, based on the 2007 Microsoft Office system, that delivers the seamless, unified, secure content-management experience your enterprise customers demand.
  4. Enterprise Project Management: Learn how you can help customers improve their ability to manage and align projects, allocate and balance resources, and track and report on projects and tasks. And provide tools and applications to help customers successfully complete projects.
  5. Enterprise Search: Support customers as they find and connect with information throughout their organizations. By using Microsoft search technologies, you can design, implement, and support customized solutions that provide highly relevant results to the right people and processes—solutions that can be easily maintained, used, and scaled across the enterprise.
  6. Unified Communications: Show customers how your solutions, developed on Microsoft technology, can help them streamline communications—regardless of medium, platform, device, or location—to increase their business productivity. 

As previously stated they do contain powerpoint presentations as well as interesting real life case studies which I find to be invaluable during presentations.

Then second of all even though I have studied most of the information on the technical side it is really good to go through the technical section of the BPIO training as a lot of overall insight is given on architecting SharePoint in different ways and creating business solutions from a technical perspective which is also good for an architect or technical person being exposed to SharePoint wanting a good fundamental understanding of the product.
