Congratulations to Quest Software for winning BEST OF TECHED in the SharePoint category. Their suite of tools provides important functionality to administrators supporting WSS and MOSS. Definitely worth checking out! (www.quest.com/sharepoint). Congratulations also to the other two finalists, Colligo (www.colligo.com) and CorasWorks (www.corasworks.com).
These three companies represent best-of-breed in what was (in my opinion) an outstanding and exciting (and growing!!!) field of ISVs providing solutions for SharePoint. At TechEd, there were vendors with amazing offerings for end users, developers, and IT pros, for WSS and for MOSS, and for just about every business scenario imaginable. What an incredible year it's been for SharePoint, and I think it's only the beginning.
