SharePoint is not an island in enterprises … more and more often it’s being integrated with other enterprise systems. According to the latest AIIM SharePoint Industry Watch Report, the three most popular enterprise systems being connected to SharePoint today include other ECM/DM systems (14%), CRM/services desk applications (13%), and formal project management systems (12%).
How is SharePoint being used? According to AIIM, “15% use SharePoint as their search and access portal across other repositories, but 44% are planning to go that way. Aligning governance, security and metadata is given as the biggest problem.”
