Org chart web part recommendations

  Asked By: Valencia    Date: Jul 10    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1702

We have a client who's considering using SharePoint and AD to
construct/maintain their organizational hierarchy. Obviously My Site
provides a glimpse of this from the perspective of a single account, but
there doesn't seem to be an OOTB solution for the big picture.

Does anyone have good or bad experiences to relate with anything on the
market (KWiz, ContentAndCode, etc)? Your input would be appreciated.

I had some success with a slightly different approach. I generated a MS
Visio org  Chart solution  for my customer, and then displayed that on a
series of web  part pages in sharepoint  using a simple page viewer web part.

This allowed me to generate the org chart  pages once, but display them in
multiple places. Normally I'm not a fan of loosely bound solutions like
this, but in this case it seems to work fairly well. Admittedly this is not
as easy as an org chart web part, but was easy to do using existing

So you were able to generate the chart  using AD? I've seen a lot of posts
about this from people who can't seem to get it to work; are there any
pitfalls I should avoid?

I had some success regd. this but slightly different from this, using ORGChart
retrieved from database and its output as image it would be loaded into

how did you get the information from AD into the database?
It seems like an unnecessary intermediate step, but if there's a good
reason, I'd be happy to hear more.
