Fresh back from SharePoint 2011 Conference, SharePoint Salon, SharePoint Sushi; now I am fired up. During the conference Owen Allen and I discussed framing a series of reports for SharePointDirections to produce after October; that’s the easy part. Now I’m assembling information on ISVs that I gathered during deep dives with each.
We’ll be revising the SharePoint EcoSystem Map during November for publication on the SharePointDirections website. The map will take on more of an Enterprise flavor given SharePoint’s acceptance as an Enterprise level platform with the introduction of 2010. The first report under consideration will cover the information management segment, followed by the process and workflow segment. However, I’ve yet to schedule deep drives with ISVs in that segment.
Our goal is to provide a qualitative assessment of products in each segment initially, position them on a grid to help clients make informed decisions, and eventually perform a qualitative analysis on each. I know that later is a big task, participating in similar activities in the engineering software market. Check out Cyon Research.
