While the calendar might say we’re already into February, we’re just beginning a new fiscal year at Dell Software. This is the perfect opportunity to look ahead at the great year we are planning for our SharePoint solutions!
Transformation seems to be the name of the game in SharePoint. No longer is this a platform stood up under someone’s desk because they received free licenses and thought they’d try it out. SharePoint has moved out of its infancy and into maturation with improved capabilities around content collaboration, social communications and application development. According to Microsoft’s Bill Baer, senior product manager on the SharePoint team, in his October 2013 post entitled “SharePoint for the enterprise on-premises, Online, and everything in between”:
Just as SharePoint has matured in the market, it has also matured inside Dell. As a reflection of the importance of SharePoint to the overall Dell Software Windows business, it is now a formal part of the broader offering. No longer are organizations just using SharePoint and just needing SharePoint-only solutions. Folks are moving to adopt a complete Windows platform that includes SharePoint, Exchange, Active Directory and Lync. They are seeking a provider who can bring offerings to support their entire investment and no longer looking to one-trick pony vendors.
SharePoint is a major pillar of Dell Software’s Windows management offering. We’re excited to be moving with the market by delivering and investing heavily in our award-winning SharePoint products as part of a complete Windows migration, code-free customization and management offering. Here’s just a sampling of our investment in SharePoint and our forward-looking optimism for this technology as part of Dell’s broader Windows portfolio:
Just as organizations seek to transform their SharePoint into the business-critical platform their company and their users need, Dell Software for SharePoint is meeting the market where it’s at with a transformative SharePoint and Windows offering.
