SharePoint: What do YOU think? - 08 Mar 2008

It's conference season, and I'm lucky enough to be representing our community in several events, including the upcoming SharePoint Pro Live events in several cities in March and April.

At these events, I'm speaking on the "State of SharePoint."  I certainly have my opinions, but what I really value are yours.  What do you think about SharePoint's role in your enterprise?  What are your experiences?  Your trials and tribulations? Your hopes?

I'm curious:

  • What do you wish someone had told you about SharePoint "earlier" (so it wasn't so painful to learn yourself)?
  • What have you leaned that you want to share with others?
  • What are the biggest gaps in the product? 
  • Where is SharePoint delivering the biggest value for you?
  • What were the easiest, and the hardest things for you in your learning curve?

I'm definitely interested in the technical, but I am even more interested in the "meta"--the business, the strategy, the governance, the process...

I don't want to start a religious war or a whine-fest, nor do I want to produce a bunch of sugar-coated schlock. I'm interested in real, constructive thoughts from you.  I'll assemble my experiences and opinions, and yours, and present them to you at these upcoming events and through this newsletter.

Please come to my new SharePoint blog  and tell me what you think!  16 months into the SharePoint (V3/MOSS) lifecycle, and on the dawn of Office 14, I think it's time we pooled our thoughts!
