Why Read This Report

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) has lousy metadata capabilities. If tagging content and managing taxonomies in MOSS 2007 are important to you— and they should be — consider buying a third-party solution to meet key requirements. SharePoint Server 2010 ships with significant metadata enhancements that could spur enterprises to upgrade. Yet even with these improvements, sought after semantic capabilities like autoclassification and entity extraction remain gaps in the SharePoint platform. Use this report as a guide to partners that can plug these important SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010 gaps.
