Salesforce’s Do.com Aims to Torpedo Microsoft’s Collaboration Stronghold (ReadWriteWeb)
In a very short period of time – just the last 18 months – Salesforce.com has risen from “up-and-comer,” straight through “challenger” status, to the potential out-and-out leader in workforce software. Every move it has made so far, including the December 2010 purchase of open cloud platform Heroku, has been part of a well-played strategy thus far to build leveraged platforms in cloud-based services the way Microsoft leveraged its platforms for office applications… only somewhat faster.

SharePoint is Crack and Microsoft is the Pusher (CMSWire)
SharePoint is crack and Microsoft is the pusher. Yeah, I said it. Listen up now, I’ll say it again. SharePoint is crack and Microsoft is the pusher! The other week, I wrote an article that stirred up a bunch of CMS, DMS, ECMS and other content professionals enough to make them comment. Some agreed, some poked at what they perceived to be holes in my central claim. And a couple took it as an opportunity to express their opinion of how SharePoint is the divine gift to business and IT professionals. It seems like I’ve seen this tableau before, maybe even more than once. Continue reading this entry »

Office 365 vs. Google Apps for Business; Can the Mobile Office Work?; The Future Of Productivity

Microsoft Office 365 vs. Google Apps for Business (NetworkWorld)
The battle between Microsoft and Google for office cloud dominance reminds me of the clash of the Titans. Microsoft and its classic on-premises business model is like Gaia, the earth goddess, and Google with its disruptive lightning bolt, is like Zeus, a sky god and a next generation kind of god. On June 28, Microsoft launched Office 365, a subscription cloud service that replaced its Business Productivity Online Standard Suite (BPOS). Office 365 was a direct response to Google Apps for Business, which has been luring companies away from on-premises e-mail and Office applications with promises of better collaboration, less cost and less headaches. Google claims that it has some 4 million businesses using Google Apps for Business. To be fair, this number pales compared to the millions using Office, which by some estimates totals 750 million people. Continue reading this entry »

Prepare for the Hidden Costs of SharePoint Server 2010 Implementations (SearchContentManagement)
It’s rare for a major piece of software these days to lack some kind of hidden costs, and SharePoint Server 2010 is no exception. Not “hidden” in the sense that Microsoft is trying to slip something past you, but rather it refers to the costs of owning and operating SharePoint that businesses don’t always think about. Not thinking about these things can not only cost an organization money, but also jeopardize the stability, performance and reliability of its SharePoint infrastructure. That’s because without realizing that these costs exist, an enterprise might overlook some critical design, maintenance and management tasks. Continue reading this entry »

You Think You Use SharePoint But You Really Don’t (TechRepublic)
Thousands of organizations have implemented SharePoint but fail to exploit the most obvious of SharePoint’s many benefits. Here are some suggestions for a SharePoint roadmap that can succeed. You see it all around you, good SharePoint gone bad. The number of SharePoint deployments in the world today has six digits in it, and four-fifths of them suck. That’s a subjective observation, of course; many who deploy SharePoint (especially the license-free version) don’t have very high ambitions. The irony is, they could aim much higher, and get a lot more out of their deployment without upgrading to the more expensive version. Continue reading this entry »
