MIC training to ease operations in organizations

In the corporate world, it is essential for individuals to easily access and share data and also collaborate with their colleagues within and outside the organization. Microsoft SharePoint 2010 is one of the applications used to achieve this integrated collaborative environment.

In a bid to help improve the productivity and increase profitability for different organizations, the Microsoft Innovation Centre (MIC) organized a one-week training for IT professionals on Microsoft SharePoint 2010. The course was intended to teach individuals how to efficiently incorporate Microsoft SharePoint 2010 in their daily activities in order to improve data management in their workplaces.

The training, held at the College of Computing and Information Sciences (CoCIS) was attended by 14 participants from organizations like Uganda Revenue Authority (URA), Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS), Growers Tea Factory, National Information Technology Authority- Uganda (NITA-U), COSEKE-Uganda among others.

Speaking during the handover of certificate to the trainees, Drake Mirembe, the MIC manager said the centre seeks to build capacity aimed at making businesses more profitable. €œThe Center works in a global partnership that enables us pass on the right courses to the public. The courses we offer are impacting organizations worldwide,€ he added, noting that the College, which hosts the MIC is privileged to be able to impact on the core areas of social transformation through using ICT to change communities.

The trainees lauded the MIC for this training, revealing that it helped address a number of challenges experienced by the individuals who were already using Microsoft SharePoint in their organizations. Gloria Nshekanabo of URA said they have been underutilizing SharePoint, but after the training, the organization will adopt the various functions within the application. URA uses SharePoint to communicate, store documents and collaborate with partners.
