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.

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.

Colligo and Microsoft at LegalTech 2011 in New York City

The Colligo team recently participated in another interesting conference, this time it was the LegalTech East Conference in New York City. LegalTech is an important event for law firms and legal departments looking for practical information on technology to better manage their practice. This year’s conference attracted more than 14,000 attendees.

Colligo was definitely busy at the show and it was great to meet up with many of our east coast based customers and partners. In addition to having a booth at the conference, Colligo was also invited by Microsoft to speak at their very well attended “Super Session” on SharePoint. Trevor Dyck, Colligo’s Director of Product Management, did a presentation to a full house on how law firms and legal departments are deploying SharePoint client solutions for email and matter management and the importance of integrating Outlook with SharePoint. The session was moderated by Norm Thomas of Microsoft and also included Kevin Griffie of AIS and Matt Koch of Metalogix who did presentations on their company’s respective SharePoint solutions.

2010 ARMA Conference – SharePoint 2010 and Records Management in the Spotlight

The Colligo team recently participated in another very interesting conference, this time the 2010 ARMA conference in San Francisco. The conference brings together records and information management professionals from across North America. Once again, SharePoint 2010 was very much front and center with this group. It was easy to see the importance that Microsoft is putting on the new records management functionality of SharePoint 2010, as they had a huge presence at the show, with an extremely busy booth and an always full SharePoint lab where they would walk people through the new records management capabilities of SharePoint 2010.
