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.
