Redmond | News: SharePoint Takes Center Stage at Catalyst Event

Many of the SharePoint-related sessions at Catalyst were standing room only, and ~90% of the attendees at a workshop Guy Creese and I co-presented indicated they're using SharePoint today

Burton Group put the spotlight on Microsoft's SharePoint Server 2007 product on Thursday at its Catalyst Conference 2008 event. The analyst and consulting group allocated no less than five panels at the San Diego-based event to discuss SharePoint for the enterprise. The panels focused on the solution's strengths and weaknesses, as well as the importance of partner support in implementing SharePoint.

The SharePoint panels kicked off with a discussion on "The Next Steps" for the product by Guy Creese, vice president and director of research at the Burton Group. Creese outlined both positives and negatives for a platform that's designed to enable organizational collaboration, portal creation, search, content management, support for business processes and business intelligence.
