Microsoft is being predictably tight-lipped about specifics around the next release of SharePoint, but that doesn’t mean folks across all industries aren’t anxiously awaiting it. Today, two years after the release of 2010 and five years after the release of MOSS, dynamic document management is at an interesting crossroads.

Those of you who have SharePoint 2010 in place (particularly if your footprint is large or usage is mature) are wondering whether you should continue full-steam ahead or wait for some indication of where Microsoft is taking the product with the next release.

Those of you who have older versions in place (MOSS, WSS, etc.), and are feeling the increasing pain of being a version (or more) behind, are wondering whether you should bite the bullet and upgrade to SharePoint 2010 or continue limping along to wait for the next release.

And those of you who have no SharePoint in place are wondering whether you should finally dive in now (and begin reaping the benefits of using SharePoint rather than shared drives) or stick it out a little longer until the next version.

Learning Objectives:

  • What’s the best way to minimize the risk associated with the next release of SharePoint to an organization?
  • What factors make staying put with an existing version of SharePoint a good idea versus a bad one?
  • How can an organization balance the need for document management capabilities now with the benefits of waiting for new capabilities of the next release?
