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.

Collaborative Businesses Succeed on an ECM Foundation

Business is inherently social: Every day, people work together, share ideas and communicate with each other and with customers and partners. And they do it in more ways and on more platforms than ever before. Teams and content are more and more decentralized, and digital information is increasing exponentially. The size of the digital universe is expected to roughly double every two years. . . .

Best Practices in Knowledge Management

KNOW THIS:  KNOWLEDGE IS ELUSIVE
 
Many knowledge management gurus will tell you that knowledge cannot be "managed," in the typical sense. Data can be managed. Information can be managed. But "knowledge" is in some kind of fourth dimension, outside of the reach of control.
 
Maybe it's a semantic argument. But there are plenty of people out there who are active knowledge managers--some with business cards that say so!--and spend their days managing their organizations' knowledge just fine, thank you very much.
 
But there IS a point to the pundits' argument: Knowledge is not easy to put your finger on. It's an ethereal thing; it's not simply data, and it's not simply "what's in people's heads" either. It's both. So to conduct knowledge management requires a deep understanding of the business AND the workers who walk in and walk out of your buildings every day.
 
The next KMWorld White Paper--"Best Practices in Knowledge Management"--will try to unravel that knot. If you have a way to address it, please contact:
