So how did we get here? What forces of nature combined to make SharePoint the "do everything", "installed everywhere" solution that it has become today. It is probably best to take a look at the vision behind the original SharePoint concept. In my opinion,...

If you had been hiding under a rock for the past few years and were just starting to search for a collaborative content management system, you may get the impression that SharePoint is the only product on the market. But after looking at the literature, blogs, tweets, and webinars, and being...

Once you have decided to use SharePoint, you need to sell that solution to others. I am not talking about the ROI discussion you might have to have with your boss; I am talking about convincing your coworkers that SharePoint is better than file shares or that document management...

keep our BS detectors in working order during SharePoint deployments? After all, there's so much to sift through -- even in our gated AIIM group of bloggers -- that the volume of pros and cons overwhelms those vows we make to stand our middle ground. To see the trade-offs from false choices....
