Microsoft Office / SharePoint 2007 resources
Part of my role involves me communicating to business units how new technology can improve their processes.
As part of the global SharePoint team the impact of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007
and rollout of the new Office 2007 client suite
is getting alot of traction.
Microsoft released a high-level whitepaper talking about on using Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) for collaboration for the Banking industry
The self-service nature of SharePoint (example of emplyee reviews
) and the evolution of it as a platform
is now a driving force
From 2-way sync-ing of metadata between Word and SharePoint lists
to dashboard views
Other resources/whitepapers from Microsoft (quite a few are really for ISVs/partners but are good internal marketing too) you might want to look at include:
Tips and TricksOffice 2007 partner sales toolsGoverenceWeb 2.0 in the Enterprise
One particular good document is the Microsoft Sales Toolkit 'Gear Up'
, which gives a marketing overview of most Microsoft products.
External vendors are beginning to plug gaps in functionality like taxonomy
Even the Web Content Management (WCM) features have been deployed by a number of companies
with Microsoft planning more improvements on http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/
Also connected to information workers, these papers comes some interesting statistics:
Knowledge workers spend 15 percent of 30 percent of their work days looking for information
, and at least 50 percent of online search are not successful.
Work-life balance will be eclipsed by work-life blending - Microsoft and FutureLab report
which states nearly half o fall works (46.8%) have jobs that invole them working away from the office.
Finally some teasers on Office "14"...
