During the SharePoint 2009 Conference being held in Las Vegas this week I got a chance to preview some of the latest ECM technologies built for SharePoint.
One of the standouts was newly minted technology from KnowledgeLake. They showcased a new viewer built in SilverLight that is really slick.
Also worthy of mentioning was the new redaction technology used in conjuction with the Fujitsu fi6140 scanner to automatically redact sensitive areas of document with a password protected encryption key. Once scanned and redacted the document can be easily shared without revealing key personal or confidential information. It’s definately not your dad’s redaction technology.
I had a chance to sit down with Ron Cameron and discuss his take on SharePoint 2010. Needless to say he is a fan. I asked him to sum up what it would mean to existing users of MOSS 2007 when planning upgrades.
“The transition to SP2010 will be fairly painless if planned well. The heart and lungs of the platform remain the same. There are a lot of added features & the object model expansion will give existing customers a whole new level of integration and scalability options.”
Based on the upgrade breakouts I generally agree with the exception of how customized your current MOSS platform is and the extent to which custom web parts are used in your sites.
There is much more to blog about on SP2010 and I will be updating several of our ECM Blogs with relevant topics on Records Management, Remote BLOB Storage, Document Management, Web Content Management & Scalability s be sure to check them out often for updates. The next couple of weeks are going to be really exciting as we put the finishing touches on our Nexus 2009 ECM conference so I’ll try and post more as time permits.
KnowledgeLake and Fujitsu sponsored a rocking beach party at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. Special VIP guest KnowledgeLake Man was showed up, I even got a couple of pictures.
