SharePoint 2010 – Word has hit the streets

Posted by on Oct 20, 2009 in SharePoint 2010

The word is out, SharePoint 2010 NDA has been uplifted and we are being bombarded with information that is coming out of the SharePoint 2009 conference in Las Vegas and by the SharePoint Product Team Blog.  All I can say is WOW!  Unfortunately I was not able to attend the conference, however I have been following my fellow SharePoint tweeps who are tweeting information from various sessions being held at the conference “live”.  SharePoint 2010 is marketed as the release of the decade with great new features.  The SharePoint Team blog describe SharePoint in 1 sentence, “8 categories and 40 feature areas.”

Steve Ballmer, Microsoft’s CEO announced during the keynote that they will be releasing the Beta of Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 in November this year  with the final release due in the first half of next year.

It’s hard to contain one’s excitement over this most anticipated release and am looking forward to many of the features noted.  Here is a list of some of my favourites;

  • re-usable workflows
  • office ribbon, ajax interface
  • my site enhancements
  • Integration of FAST search
  • visio services
  • business connectivity services
