SharePoint Adoption: Content And Collaboration Is Just The Start

Driving A SharePoint-Based Information Workplace Will Challenge C&C Pros

September 30, 2011


Why Read This Report

Microsoft SharePoint is poised for broader adoption as an Information Workplace platform. While most use it for content and collaboration (C&C) needs today, the platform's broad, integrated capabilities make it a contender to replace or augment other discrete IT investments tomorrow. Moving SharePoint beyond its C&C roots into areas like custom application development, business intelligence, and social tools is a complex and arduous journey. Yet the reward of a SharePoint-based Information Workplace could be worth the risk. More complex workloads, particularly custom development, mean C&C professionals must develop a well-thought-out and deliberate strategy for success. This research reports on our latest assessment of SharePoint adoption and discusses its implications for C&C professionals.
