State of the Market: Microsoft SharePoint (2009)

Microsoft SharePoint has captured the ECM market’s attention. While some may argue that SharePoint is not a panacea and is perhaps being over-used, many organizations around the world are reportedly using it for one or more ECM-related projects.

Can SharePoint be successfully deployed enterprise-wide? Is it best suited for particular applications, or capable of addressing all of an enterprise’s content management needs? Does it have particular functional strengths and weaknesses?

Answers to these and many other questions are contained in this 25+ page market research, based on 616 respondents from medium to large organizations.

This research is a free download.

If you need help in evaluating SharePoint (or any other on-premise, open source or SaaS-oriented solution in this space), or in making the most out of your SharePoint investment (whether still using SharePoint 2003, SharePoint 2007 or SharePoint 2010), contact us to discuss how to make SharePoint a useful tool in your toolkit, rather than an overly expensive replacement for the file sharing you already have…

“During a week long "Proving Ground" for Information Architecture and Taxonomy, Dan added delightful perspectives from his incredibly diverse knowledge to help illustrate the classic techniques and lighten the rather dry science of IA. In the classes and workshops I learned that formality and formula are a first step and beyond that it is about context and connecting ideas. The Proving Ground experience has helped me in several ECM, information management, and data governance projects. Since the class I’ve followed Dan's blogs and podcasts that prove he is a master at connecting the science to the art, and knows how to get to the heart of managing enterprise content and knowledge.”
