The Strategic Evolution of SharePoint

During his keynote session at the SharePoint Conference 2009 Jeff Teper, Corporate Vice President for SharePoint, showed an interesting PowerPoint slide from 1999 when Microsoft where first strategising about a new product that was to become SharePoint. The amazing thing is that 10 years later the key elements of the strategy set down then are now just as applicable now:

  • Provide a great integrated solution
  • Out of the box work spaces
  • Compelling Office integration
  • Easy and flexible deployment

The good news for all of us SharePoint professionals, and more importantly the millions of SharePoint end-users, is that this shows a consistent long-term approach to the product that has definitely helped shape where we find SharePoint 2010 today and hopefully where it will go in the future!
