The Art of SharePoint Success: Strategy - SharePoint as an Application Development Platform

This is article six in the epic saga exploring my Art of SharePoint Success framework for achieving long-term business benefits from investments in SharePoint based initiatives, (eagle eyed readers will note that last month’s article claimed to be number 6, it was in fact number 5).
There are four elements to the framework:

  1. Governance
  2. Strategy
  3. Architecture
  4. Transition

Last month we began our discussion of the Strategy element by posing the tricky question, “What is SharePoint?” I offered my answer which is,  

SharePoint is a set of integrated technologies which provides a platform upon which an organization can build a flexible, long-term information and knowledge management infrastructure.”

We discussed the concepts of SharePoint as a set of integrated technologies, and as a shared infrastructure. This month we explore the idea of SharePoint as an application development platform and examine the implications of deciding to fire up Visual Studio and cut SharePoint code.
