Microsoft Sharepoint adoption continues to grow, and with the introduction of Sharepoint 2010 it will only get bigger. Gartner recently reported that over 50% of its own client organizations are using Sharepoint in one way or another.
Businesses looking to improve how they interact with their customers online are wondering how best to fill in the gaps between Sharepoint and web content management.
“People ask themselves ‘If we can set up an internal site with Sharepoint, why can’t we just flip the public switch and build our internet websites in the same way?’” says Vern Imrich, Chief Technical Officer at Percussion. “There are different needs involved in enabling internal collaboration and sharing than in really using content effectively to spur customers or prospects to act.”
On June 24th, Percussion and Axceler will present a free webinar, How To Use Sharepoint with Web Content Management for Effective Websites, in which Imrich will explain the differences between Sharepoint sites and public-facing websites, the needs of each, and the incremental costs associated with using Sharepoint for internet sites. Imrich will also explore how Sharepoint can work with dedicated web content management systems to make public-facing websites more effective.
An introduction by Gail Shlansky, Sharepoint expert and Director of Product Management at Axceler, will provide a Sharepoint State of the Union, outlining typical uses of Sharepoint in the field.
