AIIM SharePoint Webinar

If you missed the webinar, you can still hear a recording of it.

Great questions from the crowd, and a record setting attendance. The survey was interesting in terms of the qualification of respondents. Carl invited 1000 people to respond. 616 unique organizations responded. Carl then lobbed off companies smaller than 100 people, which brought the number down to 512. Then he dropped anyone who was not in production which he defined as having both business group and IT blessing for the implementation.

Carl mentioned that he gets about a dozen pings a day from organizations looking for SharePoint talent. He attributes this to the high demand for the product, but also the fact that integration is not easy and training is not readily available.

Of the organizations that gave up their implementations, 48% stated their chief concerns were security and integration. And if you can’t secure and integrate your content management system, it’s really not much more than a file share.
