CMSWire to Hold Google Hangout on The Changing Face of SharePoint in the Enterprise #SocBizHangout

Share Article

SharePoint expands on its base as a document focused collaboration tool with every new release. What services does it provide the enterprise today and what will be its role in the future?

CMSWire, a web magazine focused on customer experience management, social business and document management, is holding a Google Hangout to discuss how enterprises utilize SharePoint today and how this might change in the future.

The move to cloud computing, Yammer acquisition and now Steve Ballmer’s departure -- change is afoot at Microsoft and the effects will be felt in SharePoint. SharePoint started as a document focused collaboration tool but evolved with every release.

What role does it play in the enterprise today, does the latest release change its position again? Do the changes improve or complicate the platform? Will users adopt or look to other, lighter weight solutions for the enterprise?

Join in on August 28th at 9 am PDT / 12 pm EDT / 1600 GMT as CMSWire leads a discussion on the changing position SharePoint holds in the enterprise.

These questions will shape the discussion:

1. What are the top SharePoint 2013 improvements and do you think they are sufficient to keep SP competitive in the market?
2. In his SPTechCon keynote, Joel Oleson talked about responsive design and SharePoint. What needs to happen to improve SharePoint's mobile story?
3. SharePoint + Yammer: What is your current perspective on the upsides and downsides of this acquisition?
4. We mainly talk about SharePoint in terms of social, collaboration and document management, but what about business intelligence and search? How are these features progressing in SharePoint 2013?
5. The SharePoint user experience is taking a beating. Is the UX a primary reason for adoption issues, or are there other factors at play in why organizations struggle with adoption?
6. Office 365 seems to be taking away from SharePoint on-premises deployments, while some businesses are considering hybrids. What are the key drivers for each type of implementation (cloud, on premises, hybrid)?
7. If you were chief architect of SharePoint, what would your next steps be for the platform?

The CMSWire team has assembled a panel of experts who will be sharing their field experiences.

The panelists include:

  • Christian Buckley - Director of Product Evangelism at Axceler
  • Jennifer Mason - SharePoint Consultant at Rackspace Hosting
  • Peter Senescu - President at MetaVis Technologies
