SharePoint - Truth and Fiction

Oracle is sponsoring an AIIM webinar titled "SharePoint – Truth and Fiction." In a recent AIIM study, over 400 organizations shared their opinions and experiences concerning Microsoft SharePoint. So what did we find? Well, as you would expect, SharePoint works well for file sharing. And it works OK for employee facing websites. But it is rarely used for WCM, DAM, Records Management, BPM/Complex workflow, etc. Also, organizations are finding that it costs way more than expected as a platform for development of custom solutions.

I think what is interesting about that is the comparison of Microsoft’s positioning versus reality. They have pushed SharePoint as an ECM solution that can do anything. But the reality is that when you push it to do more than the basics, insanity ensues.

It certainly is an area of interest however – over 2,000 people have signed up for this webcast, which blows away any previous record for an AIIM webcast.

The event takes place Jan. 28 | 2:00 pm EST / 11:00 am PST, and a recording will be available afterward.
