Evaluating Share Point As An Enterprise 2.0 Platform

1,470 views

Published on

SharePoint has been widely adopted platform for Intranets and Collaboration. What does it hold for users in terms of Web 2.0 features, Social Collaboration, Knowledge Management and generally allowing for widespread user participation, and self service? Also from a usability and governance standpoint how does it compare to other widely adopted platforms for Web 2.0 in the Enterprise? What are its capabilities for various web 2.0 features like Blogs, Wikis, Social Sites, Community Sites, etc.? When does it make sense to adopt SharePoint versus some of the other solutions for Social Collaboration within your organization?

This Presentation given originally as a Webinar on June 25th 2009 from 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM EST provided an overview of Optimus BT's analysis on leading platforms in this space, the features and benefits some of them provide and how SharePoint compares. If you have already adopted SharePoint and are looking to use it for Enterprise 2.0 features - we provides examples [not covered in this presentation deck] of how we have achieved that with our methodology.
