The Need For Speed to Address The New Normal for SharePoint 2010 and Beyond...

At SharePoint Conference 2011, Jeff Teper, Corporate Vice President, Office Business Platform, Microsoft Business Division, firmly announced and demonstrated how SharePoint is now the de facto standard for enterprise content management!

With great fanfare, his team demonstrated "live" on EMC Unified VNX storage the building of a SharePoint environment that held 14TB of content database, a fact many pundits said would never be possible in SharePoint. Teper's team took the demonstration to the heart of an enterprise operational imperative - they exercised a complete index and search for several items and lists and failed it over live to a backup SQL server within a millisecond. Teper revealed that SharePoint is now enterprise-class as 75% of enterprises have already moved to SharePoint and another 12% are planning to do so this year, figures backed by our own research with Enterprise Strategy Group.

Meet the "New Normal in Content Management" - SharePoint is now the standard for content management and its maturation will include the operational imperative to improve performance and management efficiencies. In this new normal, organizations require innovative solutions to migrate, upgrade, store and protect SharePoint faster. As SharePoint content and users grow exponentially, the operational need for speed in full-fidelity migrations, upgrades, consolidations and SharePoint storage optimization solutions matters.

We are proud to put the exclamation point on another record-breaking fiscal year in 2011 for Metalogix as we continued our impressive year-over-year growth in billings and new customer adoption. Looking to 2012, we are poised and ready to further SharePoint management innovation and provide you with highest-performing, trusted content lifecycle management solutions for all of your business-critical Microsoft content, whether on-premises or in the cloud, to enhance the use and improve the economics of SharePoint - the de facto standard for Enterprise Content Management.
