Blog away with SharePoint

Posted by chrissyz on April 27, 2008

 “What’s it going to be then, eh?”

The most quoted sentence in my favorite movie “The Orange Clock”.  I guess lots of people will pop up the same question for SharePoint just like me

First introduced in 2001 as SharePoint Team Services, then as SharePoint Server in 2003, now the much more mature and pro-enterprise Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 is making major inroads within large corporations as the base for collaborative applications. Microsoft has stuffed BI, search, form services, workflow automations and content management capabilities all into MOSS this large playground. What you can do with it? You can work it into almost anything.

Yes, people want choices. It is one of the things Sharepoint fascinates me. Playing with all sorts of possibilities, try to get the best bid out of it. But this is a double-sword: either it can be a competitive advantage and innovation catalyst for the business or it can be another layer of chaos sitting on your already complex enough enterprise system. It is not an easy game, but I am sure you don’t want to (and can’t afford) to miss it.

Being an IT consultant, I inevitably need to work with SharePoint from time to time.  I start this blog to share some of my thoughts on SP during my daily work. Special thanks for my good teacher and friend Patrick Tisseghem’s inspiration and encouragement. Enjoy the reading.
