Why Read This Report

At the SharePoint Conference in October 2009, Microsoft disclosed the full functional road map for SharePoint Server 2010. Forrester views this release as evolutionary, not revolutionary. Since its debut in 2001, SharePoint's value proposition has evolved from a basic file-sharing tool, to a broad, integrated platform for collaborative workspaces, content management, portal, and now, search and Social Computing workloads. While the broad platform value proposition has appealed to many buyers, point solutions will represent a better option for buyers looking to preserve existing investments or to add a single workload, like social tools. For those craving a broad, highly integrated platform, the good news is that SharePoint 2010 addresses gaps and issues found in prior versions.
