UX Design Meets Beauty and Function with These Solutions
https://www.livetiles.nyc/blog/ux-design-meets-beauty-and-function-with-these-solutions/

When it comes to creating an accessible business solution, a powerful user experience is everything. It’s what stays with users long after they’ve finished working, and it can drive user adoption. For these reasons, the field of user experience design has shown rapid growth over the couple of years. However, finding the balance between functionality and user engagement can be a tricky compromise for any UX designer.

How do you modernize your enterprise with SharePoint apps, and how do Nintex enterprise apps fit into the picture?

In that case, they just need to be installed on the SharePoint site you’d like to use them on. Site owners can manage their SharePoint apps directly, without the need for an administrator’s assistance.

Christian Holslin of Gig Werks to Speak at NY Business Intelligence User Group
5/5/2011

​Christian Holslin of Gig Werks will be the presenter at the May 9th meeting of the New York City Microsoft Business Intelligence User Group. His presentation will be on Kerberos Authentication for SharePoint 2010. All details are below along with the link to the groups Meetup site.

The New York City Microsoft Business Intelligence User Group: http://www.msbinyc.com/Main.aspx

Session Name: Making SharePoint BI work: Kerberos Authentication for SharePoint 2010

Session Link: http://www.msbinyc.com/EventDetails.aspx?eventid=8

About the Session
Kerberos authentication, created at MIT and named after Hades’ three-headed guard dog Cerberus (according to Wikipedia), has been around for decades. The protocol is designed to provide rapid, secure authentication to users on a multi-system network, or “farm” as we like to call them. The main advantage of Kerberos over NTLM or forms-based authentication is the ability for a user’s identity to securely traverse multiple servers without requiring a re-key of the user’s credentials. This concept is referred to as single sign-on: login once to access everything. The most common example of Kerberos in practice involves Reporting Services. A user browses to a SharePoint document library to run a Report with data in a SQL Server database. SharePoint and SQL Server both implement Kerberos authentication to allow the user to view the Report using the user’s own credentials. No login prompts, no proxy accounts, no stored credentials. In this session, Christian Holslin will walk through, step by step, the process of configuring Kerberos authentication in a SharePoint 2010 farm environment.

About Christian Holslin
Christian Holslin has over 10 years of professional industry experience working with Microsoft technologies with a focus on infrastructure and custom software development. Starting with Windows NT 4.0 and continuing through Windows Server 2008, Christian has been following the progression of the Microsoft Windows infrastructure which has refined his expertise in the area of SharePoint. Christian has been building SharePoint Solutions since 2006, with specific expertise in InfoPath and Reporting.
