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.

Challenges, Rules, and Tips for E-Discovery
One of the most expensive, and information-intensive, processes in business today. And in 2016, it will only get worse. Every company will get sued. Get used to that. And the rules for discovering electronically created and stored information are only getting stricter. So go get some information on the rules and structures for providing the appropriate and necessary back-up for your litigation. Start here.

KMWorld White Paper Series

***Coming in February 2016***
Best Practices for E-Discovery

By now everyone is aware that electronically stored information (ESI) is at the crux of many civil litigations, and can represent the "smoking gun" when it comes down to a fight. The courts are becoming much more knowledgeable about the discovery of electronic records, and the rules that govern the process. But many organizations are either slow or unknowledgeable about how to protect themselves.

At the same time, that ESI can be of great benefit to many business processes. It should be protected, but not wasted. This tension between the legal officers, the IT department and business managers has caused great turmoil in most organizations.

And where there's turmoil, there's opportunity.

***Coming in February 2016***
Best Practices in Digital Asset & Video Management

The emergence of “rich media” and its inevitable impact on business is just beginning. But it’s real--early adopter companies are already taking cues from the media and entertainment industries and are finding the great potential for value locked within their marketing videos, PowerPoint presentations, and training courses.

Will the entire world come to rely on digital assets? Probably not. But where it matters, it matters a lot. And those are the people clamoring right now for the best solution to their digital asset management (DAM) challenges. They want to solve matters surrounding cloud storage, how assets are retrieved, how assets are shared and features for brand management.

This is the time to seek them out and tell your story.
