For those who are not happy with the records management functionality of SharePoint 2010, the latest partnership between Iron Mountain (news, site) and GimmalSoft (news, site) will be welcome as the companies are getting together to develop a means of managing both physical documents and electronic files for SP 2010.
In my last post, I talked about some of the ways that the iPad and social business software (SBS) both had tremendous opportunities to outflank Microsoft's dominance in the desktop document creation and document management space, respectively. Based on the responses to the article, it seems like lots of folks out there are wondering the same things about Microsoft's ability to maintain their dominance in these areas.
But, like any consultant worth their salt, I like to have it both ways, so in this post I want to consider the very real ways that Apple and SBS vendors could fail in their attempts to knock Microsoft out of the game, because their long-term success is far from assured.
Even with everything that has been done to SharePoint 2010 since its release last year, including its incorporation into Office 365, migration of content and applications remains a problem. Binary Tree has taken a new approach to the problem with the release of their Application Transformation Framework (ATF) that supports the transformation of applications from Lotus Notes to Microsoft SharePoint.
It’s July and bound to be quiet. Even so, in the GRC space, AvePoint and KnowledgeLake have paired up for SharePoint 2010 content governance, Symantec has finally closed the deal with Clearwell, Aveska’s enterprise governance solution is in big demand, while Vista SP1 support has stopped so no more security upgrades there.
Gaining access to SharePoint and Dropbox from an iPhone is nothing new. But what if you could gain access to both document storage platforms from one interface -- with a little collaboration thrown in?
First things first: before you all accuse me of cooking up a title that incorporates both SharePoint 2010 and the iPad in a shameless attempt to get more clicks than Barb Mosher’s What is SharePoint 2010? Vision and Reality, let me give some back story on my interest in the topic…
Even with the holiday weekend, it’s been a busy week for document management. Alfresco has announced a technology partnership with Ephesoft for cloud capture, Microsoft has finally released SP1 for Office 2010 and SharePoint, Harmon.ie put "social" in document creation, Adeptol upgraded its document viewing platform, while eFileCabinet and Uni-Data & Communications also team up.
Just about a year since the release of the 2010 range of office applications, Microsoft has announced the release of its Service Pack 1 (SP1) for SharePoint 2010 and Office 2010 that gathers all updates to the products so far, as well as adding new ones.
If you think that social graph and Sharepoint are opposites, think again. Thanks to harmon.ie, Sharepoint 3.0 just got more socially adept. Yes, version 2.2 was recently released, but 3.0 is designed to enhance the social elements of working, while 2.2 focused on basic elements of workflow.
The official release of Office 365 is expected today. Over the past week, there has been a lot of activity in the office productivity suite space, particularly with Google, which should see some interesting times ahead when Office goes to market. Laserfiche made its document management software mobile on the iPad, and AIIM says SharePoint users are still looking to third-party vendors.
Like many, we have been following the evolution of SharePoint 2010 since its general release last year. Anecdotal accounts suggest widespread deployment and use across enterprises with further deployments on the way. A little over a year later, we still wonder whether it has lived up to its initial promise and what exactly it is being used for at the moment and where it will go in the future.
This week, with some of the dust beginning to settle on Oracle’s OpenOffice decision, Google is backing LibreOffice with advice and funding, SharePoint seems to be gaining ground in records management, Nuance closes the Equitrac deal, we took a look at document management on-premise or as an SaaS and Office 365 may be on the way.
