SharePoint 2010 and NKOTB (Via Alan Pelz-Sharpe)

Extract from the original post
"It's been a crazy month with most of my time spent either with subscription customers or at conferences.

It's during these periods that I'm challenged the most, and learn the most. In other words, though I don't want this level of craziness in my life to be a constant, these periods of time are also extremely productive.

For example, over the past few weeks I have been seriously challenged to revisit and reassess my views around SharePoint. As an analyst it is all too easy to fall into the trap of studying a topic, coming to a conclusion (hopefully the right one) and then sticking with that conclusion. Time and the steady pace of progress eventually change everything, and SharePoint is no different in this regard.

It's been my observation that the entire SharePoint community is adjusting to a new reality, and that the thrill has gone. SharePoint is a huge business and will remain so for many years to come. There is no doubt about that. But the rampant excitement that we witnessed in the channel (reseller) community a couple of years ago has simmered down. The reality that there are fewer and fewer greenfield sites (organizations with no SharePoint presence) -- and that buyers of SharePoint are now trying to figure out what to do with it -- is hitting hard."
