Uncovering SharePoint's Past and Future Challenges

Thursday, October 6, 2011 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

First launched in 2001, SharePoint celebrates its 10th anniversary this year and in IT terms, that's approaching middle age! We thought it was about time that we look at the SharePoint journey so far — and more importantly, that we consider the approaching years ahead.  Adopted in organizations around the world, Microsoft has had one of its greatest commercial successes thus far; but it has not been without challenges.  In this webinar, we will examine some of these challenges, and consider how they specifically impact Microsoft SharePoint technology buyers. Join us for an analysis of SharePoint’s real weaknesses and strengths, along with a gaze into the crystal ball, as we consider SharePoint’s future and prospective challenges.

Planning is an unnatural process; it is much more fun to do something. The nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise, rather than being preceded by a period of worry and depression. — Sir John Harvey-Jones

The Future of Content Management

Best Practices in BPM & Case Management

The Case for Case Management

By now we've all become familiar with BPM--business process management. It started with simple workflows for transactional processes, then graduated to a more intense management environment that addressed more complex business procedures. But it was always just that: procedure management. The daily in and out of doing the same thing over and over? just in a better way. 

Not a bad thing. Still works today.

But we've moved it up a notch. Where BPM was focused on repeatable transactions and processes, the emerging case management trend is intended to address all the unpredictable events that happen every day in business. As BPM "suites" grow to adapt to these elusive changes in the environment, a new category of products has emerged. 

We call it Case and Business Process Management.

Does that sound like your marketplace? It should, if you want to move forward into this next era of business automation. You can make your mark on this market by participating in the next KMWorld White Paper ?"Best Practices in BPM and Case Management."
