IS YOUR ORGANIZATION ADDICTED TO MICROSOFT SHAREPOINT? ( Via Alice)

Extracted from the original post

SharePoint is Crack and Microsoft is the Pusher” is one of those articles with a deliberately envelope-pushing title. Although the metaphor is disturbing, there are some very good points found in this CMS Wire post from Stephen Fishman.

Fishman argues that Microsoft has a long history of putting out inexpensive products that “hook” enterprises into using them. He asserts that products like SharePoint promise to make a solution accessible to non-programmers, are often not implemented as well as they could be, and are not fully ready for the enterprise.

“SharePoint is constantly rolled out in a slipshod manner with little thought to governance or developing scalable and maintainable taxonomies. I know there are recent improvements in this arena, but being capable doesn’t matter if enterprises don’t roll it out that way . . . . The resulting organic growth inevitably results in buried content with no easy mechanisms for ambient findability. SharePoint, just like Windows Explorer and Outlook, suffers from the obsolete single-parent hierarchy mechanism used to categorize files.”

Fishman predicts that Microsoft’s competitors will eventually come up with a better paradigm and platform and throws out Salesforce, Facebook, and Google as possible winners in the competition with SharePoint.
