Microsoft SharePoint has captured the ECM market's attention. While some may argue that SharePoint is not a panacea and is perhaps being over-used, many organizations around the world are reportedly using it for one or more ECM-related projects.
In fact, it is likely, based on the market data that is the focus of this white paper, that someone in your organization is using SharePoint - perhaps even you. But among this market fervor, there is still confusion regarding the depth and breadth by which SharePoint can have impact on the organization.
Can it be successfully deployed enterprise-wide? Is it best suited for particular applications, or capable of addressing all of an enterprise's content management needs? Does it have particular functional strengths and weaknesses?
Answers to these and many other questions were the focus of a recent survey conducted by AIIM and Information Architected. The survey was sent in November 2008 to approximately 2,000 AIIM members, yielding 616 responses. Collectively, these responses shed light on the reality of SharePoint adoption and practice within the enterprise.
