I’m really pleased to announce that Colligo Contributor Pro has won the Andy Dale SharePoint Award 2011 for the Best SharePoint Mobile or Offline Solution. This is the third straight year that Colligo Contributor has won the award and I’d like to say thank you to everyone that voted for us!

So a big congratulations to the Colligo development team for building such a great product!

European SharePoint Best Practices Conferences – Cloud talk but not an ash cloud in sight

The European SharePoint Best Practices Conference 2011 was held last week in London and Colligo not only attended but were proud sponsors of the event.

The Exhibitors Hall was packed for the kick off party and during the lunch breaks!

Congratulations to Microsoft for <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/office365/online-software.aspx" target="_blank">releasing the public beta of Office 365</a>. The buzz that we’re hearing about <a title="Office 365" href="https://www.colligo.com/sharepoint-solutions/business/office-365-cloud/">Office 365</a> is incredible and we’ve talked to a lot of customers who are looking at either moving totally to Office 365 or creating a hybrid environment with both on-premise and cloud-based SharePoint.

We’re really proud to have been the first company in our market to <a href="/news-releases/colligo-networks’-contributor-pro-suite-introduces-industry-leading-support-for-microsoft-office-365/">announce support for Office 365 </a>and actually had Microsoft demonstrate <a title="Colligo Contributor" href="https://www.colligo.com/products/contributor/">Colligo Contributor</a> working with Office 365 at the AIIM/Info360 conference in Washington, DC in March.

Box.net versus SharePoint 2010 – The Bell for Round One

While attending the AIIM/Info360 conference a couple weeks ago, it was obvious that Box.net had decided to use the event as their “coming out” party. Box.net is a cloud content management company that is positioning itself directly against SharePoint 2010. In fact, they are claiming that 73% of Fortune 500 companies are already using their service.

On their website, Box.net invites people to compare the cost of SharePoint to Box.net through the use of a simple calculator. So being the inquisitive type, I decided to give it a try!

Eating Your Own Dogfood – Law Technology News Article on Microsoft LCA

Law Technology News has just published an excellent article on Microsoft Legal and Corporate Affairs’ deployment of SharePoint 2010 for email, document and records management. The article talks about how LCA would “eat its own dog food,” by using Microsoft software as the basis of its system including Internet Explorer 8, Office 2010, SharePoint 2010 and Fast Search — plus one outside vendor’s product: Colligo Networks’ Colligo Contributor Add-in for Outlook.

Records Management is a Team Sport

On a recent cross-country flight, I had the opportunity to catch up on some reading and had the good fortune to have downloaded the slide deck and speaking notes to a presentation that Russell Stalters did at LegalTech last year. Russell is the Director, Information & Data Management at BP and one of the most respected people in the records management field. The session was titled, “Don’t Build Your E-Discovery Program on a Digital Landfill” and although I didn’t see it live, I found the archived presentation very interesting. In fact, I think it’s a must read

Building a Business Case for Cloud Computing

I recently attended an interesting event in London with a Colligo partner, Content and Code, titled: Building a Business Case for Cloud Computing. The presentations, however, covered more ground than just cloud computing and I’ve noted some of the key themes and takeaways from the event below:

Cloud computing is on everyone’s agenda. All CxO’s are talking about the cloud because it’s in all the newspapers, on the television, and they are discussing it with their colleagues on the golf course and with their kids at home. “Cloud” has become a ubiquitous business term that everyone is using and it’s something that all IT related businesses need to address.

SharePoint 2010 in the Spotlight at the AIIM/Info360 Conference

The Colligo team has just returned from the AIIM/Info360 conference in Washington, DC, where Colligo was exhibiting in the Microsoft pavilion and presenting as part of the SharePoint track. It was definitely an action packed 3 days and I’ve noted some personal highlights and general observations from the conference below:

Colligo’s booth in the Microsoft partner pavilion

Colligo was ideally positioned in the Microsoft partner pavilion and this definitely drove a lot of traffic to our booth. As always, there was tremendous amount of interest in SharePoint 2010 and we talked with many companies and agencies that now have actual funded projects to surround/augment/replace their legacy ECM/DMS/RM solutions with SharePoint 2010.
