In his blog, “Adventures in home working”, Steve Richards pointed out that no one has really published a thorough matrix comparing the features and benefits of different approaches to taking SharePoint offline. As he says, Microsoft has some demos of office 2007, but they don’t go deep enough to really understand the strengths and weaknesses of the implementations.
We’ve tried to do a bit of that here. So far, we’ve looked at Groove 2007 and Outlook 2007. Fine, but as our new marketing manager pointed out, I committed here to a summary of Outlook 2007 beta 2 and then a deep dive into Access 2007 and, as yet, haven’t done it. Rest assured that I’ve done the testing … I just haven’t posted the results to the blog yet. But, hey, it’s the summer so cut me some slack! (excuses, excuses). Anyway, in the next couple of weeks I’ll get to those posts.
