SharePoint 2013 sure looks pretty from 35,000 feet above.
This week continued our exploration of all things SharePoint with the nitty gritty of what administrators can expect from the next version, features that everyone will love and the timeless question, "What's in a (Metro) name?"
We heard reports on the evolving field of archives from the SAA 2012 conference and were exhorted to all aspire to greatness.
Earlier in the week, in new research published by AIIM, we saw that while there has been widespread deployment of SharePoint, enterprises are far from completely happy with it. In this final look at the research we will see what the main issues are and how enterprises intend to deal with them going forward.
It's August, it's sunny (in most places anyway), the beach is calling us, or maybe it's the camper trailer or the cottage. Unfortunately we all can't take the summer off. But, we can spend some time basking in the warm glow of SharePoint. At least we will for our tweet jam this month.
While recent research by AIIM indicates that at least 70% of organizations have deployed SharePoint in some shape or form over the past year, the way it is being used and the reasons it is being deployed in the first instance, are as many as there are enterprises using it.
Are you ready for SharePoint 2013? Microsoft recently released the public beta of SharePoint 2013, and with so many changes it can be difficult to keep up. This is the first of a four-part series that provides a 35,000-foot overview of some expected updates and how they will affect various roles within your organization.
As far as social collaboration platforms go, NewsGator hits the list of the most well known, likely due to the advanced capabilities it offers in a range of areas. Of course it doesn't hurt to be tightly integrated with SharePoint either. Here's a look at the newest version and what's still to come.
Unlike the continual release model of its cloud based competitors, Microsoft releases a major version of SharePoint every three years. There are some downsides to this approach (see later in this article), but one definite upside is that when the releases do come around, those of us who work with SharePoint every day tend to get a bit excited. (As in, excited like first graders at a raspberry cordial party.)
It’s still the holiday season, so all's quiet on the document management front. However, that didn’t stop Microsoft from launching its new store for Office and SharePoint, nor did it stop Cabinet NG from rebranding. Also this week, 52apps released a watermarking tool for iPad and iPhone, while PixelCrayons enters the document management market.
SharePoint 2013 is out in preview and it has a number of enhancements that everyone seems to like. But that version of SharePoint is at least one to two years away. So we are curious to know what you think SharePoint's best feature is today, with SharePoint 2010. Hence we ask:
Our poll is open until August 25th, but give us your thoughts now, in case we change our mind and close it early (or you head out for a much needed vacation!).
For years, tech-savvy early adopters have adopted and used social tools such as blogs, wikis and micro-blogging at work. During recent years, more and more organizations have decided to deploy software platforms that bring such tools to the fingertips of all or a large portion of the employees.
So what do we think of the new Metro (oops ... we can’t use that word anymore, can we? It is now "Windows 8 style UI") stylings in SharePoint 2013? Like it? Love it? I’ll be honest, I’m not sure. I’m not sure end users are going to enjoy it.
Ah summertime: days at the beach, sand beneath your toes, water lapping the shore and our thoughts turn to ...SharePoint. SharePoint?
This week kicked off our month long focus on all things SharePoint with some thoughts on its use in today's social enterprise, its capabilities (or lack thereof?) as a Web Content Management platform and some confusing nomenclature in the latest version.
Digital Marketing was still on our minds though, with some ideas on how to focus your content marketing and some examples of bad content to put out on social media.
It's here, the public preview of SharePoint 2013 and guess what? Microsoft has made some significant enhancements to its web content management capabilities. But is it enough? Is SharePoint really a serious WCM contender? That's our question for this discussion point. Here's what the experts said.
Intranets can take years to complete and very often never actually reach the stage of total completion; they are in a continuous state of evolution. With the advent of mobile access from an array of devices, deciding what features to deploy, and how, becomes even more challenging.
August belongs to SharePoint at CMSWire. This month, we’ll examine SharePoint from many different perspectives. But before we do, what is SharePoint? If you had to conceptualize it, what would it look like? What characteristics would be highlighted?
