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.

The Future: Where Big Data and Information Governance Meet ?

For nearly two decades, large enterprises have complained about how much information they have to store, manage and protect. As regulations regarding that information steadily grow in number and complexity, they complain louder. The stakes—penalties and reputational damage for mishandled information—get higher. But a solution always seems just out of reach.

Fifteen years ago, there were no CIOs. We had VPs of MIS (management information services). If you'd asked one of them whether the problems of data growth, complexity and security—what we now call information governance—would be solved by 2014, the answer likely would have been "yes." A good bet, but wrong. . . .

Best Practices in Enhancing SharePoint

THE MANY DIMENSIONS OF SHAREPOINT

Bruce Springsteen said, "Music is what makes us not be stupid." Trying not to overstretch the metaphor, but there's a correlation to SharePoint in there, too.

The thing about SharePoint is that it is everything at the same time. And sometimes nothing at the same time. The platform is not as complete as you'd hope it to be. There's great variety and complexity in deploying SharePoint as a critical business element. And it ain't easy.
