The Real Story Group published its annual report on the enterprise content management industry last week. We talked to Real Story Group (RSG) Principal Alan Pelz-Sharpe, who outlined some of the main findings and who argues that the industry has already passed a turning point which will result in some established and newer trends gaining ground in the year to come.

Do SharePoint & Silverlight Have a Future Together?

Silverlight was Microsoft's answer to Adobe Flash, an application framework with which to build rich internet applications. It was launched in April 2007 to much fanfare, albeit mainly from Microsoft. Version 5 brought GPU accelerated video decoding and 64-bit support in December of last year. It also brought the conclusion of the Silverlight story, as this version is set to be the final release. Silverlight is no more. Or so people have been speculating, as there has yet to be any official word from Microsoft. Its lifespan might be prolonged as a Windows Phone platform, but it seems likely it will cease to exist as a browser plugin.

However this article is not about SIlverlight per se, but rather its somewhat fractured relationship with SharePoint. If we have really seen the final installment of Silverlight, what does that mean for its use with SharePoint in the future? Let’s start by seeing how it is used today.

SharePoint Implementation Checklist: Aligning People, Technology & Process

SharePoint adoption in the enterprise is growing at a rapid pace, but many organizations are still struggling to achieve the proper mix of “people,” “technology” and “process.” In the midst of just trying to figure out the technology side of SharePoint, many organizations overlook the people and process side of an implementation. Pushed even further to the backburner are the “business value” considerations of SharePoint. What is the purpose of implementing SharePoint in the first place? How will SharePoint improve operations and drive overall business results?

Customer Experience, SharePoint, Governance: Experts Advise

In the spirit of the New Year, this week quite a few of our experts were looking to clean up shop and take care of business, be it reexamining the Enterprise CMS or rethinking your customer approach.

Retroactive Governance is Better than Nothing

You won’t have to try too hard to imagine this scenario: you installed an application for a specific department to solve a certain task -- let’s call it marketing automation and team sites in SharePoint. A few months later you come back to find that it has spiraled into dozens of other departments and the system is growing like an insatiable IT monster, set to consume all of your time and resources. And now the fun part: your executive team wants to know how people are using it and why your million dollar projects look and feel a lot like unmanaged shared drives. What do you do?

Overhauling the Next Version of SharePoint My Sites

My Sites in SharePoint have always been a divisive subject. Some people love them, others aren’t so keen. SharePoint 2010 brought with it a huge improvement in the features and functionality available in My Sites, and the next version of SharePoint is likely to see a similar leap forward. It would be a big surprise if these "next generation My Sites" didn’t take some directions from the world of social networking -- Facebook, Twitter and others.

SharePoint at the Crossroads

As you would expect, Microsoft is being predictably tight-lipped about the next release of SharePoint, but that doesn’t mean we’re not all anxiously awaiting SharePoint 2013/14.

ZyLab, EntropySoft Offer Enterprise CMS Connectors for e-Discovery

One of the biggest issues around e-Discovery, apart from the fact that many companies don’t bother about it until they’re hit with an e-Discovery demand, is access to information in the many different silos across the enterprise. The new OEM agreement between EntropySoft and ZyLab aims to solve that problem.

SharePoint Third Party Products to Watch in 2012

Arguably one of the reasons for SharePoint's success over the last few years is the ecosystem of third party products and developers that help to support it. Generally speaking, if you want to add to or expand the standard SharePoint feature set, there is a product or plugin that fits the bill. Visual workflow design, list and document level backup and a hundred weather webparts -- all can be readily and easily added to your SharePoint environment.

But who will be setting the pace in the new year, and what software is worth keeping an eye on? Let’s review some of the most interesting third party products on the market for SharePoint right now.
