Yet another quick SharePoint Intranet checklist

I was checking an old blog post (Ago/09) from Joel Oleson (here) and the 10 points he raised back then remain current. It's about why your SharePoint deployment may be falling short. Here's a quick list to wrap his comments, with my own tweaking:
  1. Easy access, everywhere (the mobile and tablet market have gone huge)
  2. My Sites up and running
  3. Rich, complete and editable User Profiles
  4. Enhancing search with people and other systems
  5. Using blogs and wikis (enhanced editions)
  6. Presence enabled
  7. Easy navigation (browsing and searching)
  8. Avoid junk by expiring content, sites, lists, documents...
  9. Use tagging, rating and useful metadata
  10. Keep information dynamic and updated
There are some points more important than others, of course. But all of them should be in the back of your mind, whether you are planing a deployment of SharePoint, or if one is already up and running, but some of these areas have not been well thought or implemented.
