Colligo 4.0: Making SharePoint Experiences More Enjoyable

With SharePoint 2010 quickly approaching, it is probably safe to say that interest in this Microsoft product-zilla is not likely to go away.

Companies like Colligo take full advantage of market conditions and keep churning out products that (hopefully) make SharePoint experiences more enjoyable and productive. Please meet Colligo 4.0.

According to Barry Jinks, founder and CEO of Colligo, being in the niche allows Colligo to be very much involved with MSFT on the technology and product side. It is quite clear that Microsoft cannot fill this niche on its own, and is more than happy to refer customers to Colligo.

Given that Colligo is fairly successful, there’s clearly a need in the market that still needs to be addressed, when it comes to SharePoint usability, customization and satisfying business requirements that fall outside of out-of-the-box scenarios.

“The fight is over. Everybody needs to figure out how to cooperate with SharePoint. It is not going away,” concluded Jinks.

FatWire Turns to Open Source to Improve Scalability in Personalization, Analytics Products

FatWire is back in the news. These folks have been busy lately. In between “rescue” plans and moves towards worldwide “domination,” the web content management vendor also had some time to work on two new releases — Engage 7.5 (content targeting) and Analytics 2.5 (content optimization) — which bring major architectural changes involving open source-based technology.

Using the open source Apache Hadoop-based technology framework based on the Map-Reduce algorithm (which was also implemented in Apache Hadoop), FatWire is shifting from vertical to horizontal scalability and scale up to 100M hits per day per install. The potential can really be unlimited, theoretically speaking.

Vamosa Tools for Fixing the Enterprise Content Governance Mess

This is what I mean when I say some topics are better delivered in Scottish accents.  Thanks to Nic Archer, Sr. VP at Vamosa, for sharing the latest Vamosa news, as well as providing a good convo around general enterprise content governance topics.

The notions of web and enterprise content governance are gaining more and more attention — partially, due to growing concerns around eDiscovery and other compliance challenges. Everyone has some sort of content (and its volumes are growing at the speed of light), but do you have standards, policies and procedures around it? How do you enforce them?

According to Archer, Vamosa started to recognize the overall state of unhappiness with content while they were doing what they are traditionally know for – content migrations and content analysis. While enterprise content tends to be driven by content quality and governance principles, many organizations often end up with content that is not accessible, not cost-controlled and not findable.

The challenge many organizations face is compliance (or lack of it) with internal and external policies and regulatory standards. This is exactly the challenge Vamosa is trying to address with its new product called Check & Fix.
