Coverage of the SharePoint session at the Enterprise 2.0 Conference on Twitter:
MS guy: “Sharepoint is between major versions, so we can’t do all we want to out of the box”
WTF squared. that Microsoft guy just said its strategy for master data management was to integrate an acquisition into Sharepoint????
MS failing dismally at showing off Sharepoint collab tools. IBM totally ate their lunch.
Watching MS demonstrate SharePoint in an ‘out of the box’ manner…seems very slow and not as intuitive as Lotus Connections
Watching Sharepoint suck … LIVE! … Enterprise 1.1 FTW!
Sharepoint showing old fashioned activity feed: “Send me a portal link when the official HR info about a direct colleague is updated”
This Sharepoint walkthrough makes we want to weep for people in companies where IT are walking zombie-like towards the product. Really.
Ouch! I think the problem is that Microsoft’s aggressive marketing at the Enterprise 2.0 / online collaboration market is up against some pretty slick solutions from other vendors. It’s not that SharePoint is bad all round, but they’ve have been pitching it too high and wide.
