Christian Finn, Director of SharePoint Product Management, and Alina Fu, Product Manager, Social Computing talk about the SharePoint 2010 offering.
An interesting approach - Christian and Alina ran a "speed dating" session trying to message the major thrust of 2010. Christian pushed the big customers who use SharePoint to collaborate and, with honesty, admitted the failings of an ActiveX-centric approach.
Personal connections, finding subject matter experts, consumer features for the enterprise. 2010 has a dynamic newsfeed directly to an individual site. Personal profiling linked with contextual search.
2010 has a better user experience across blogs and wikis - unleashing the creativity of the users. Enabling the use of podcasts within the product.
User rating and commenting of content inside or outside of SharePoint. Tagging linked to newsfeeds.
The security question - "It''s Microsoft so it''s safe". Content management extends to the social media content.
Flexibility - 2010 enables advances customization, within the browser for an individual user or a team. A full range of APIs and tools to customize the look, feel and functionality.
And the speed date is over... And the audience goes wild... (not so much)
