White paper sponsored by EMC: Dubois, Laura. Enabling SharePoint operational efficiency and information governance with EMC SourceOne. IDC, May 2010. 10 p. (available online)
In this report, IDC indicates as well how SharePoint is rapidly adopted by companies.
According to a 2010 study, 72% of the 508 firms surveyed were already using SharePoint, mainly for colaboration purposes (content and records management, web portals are other preferred purposes).
According another study, 300 US organizations indicated that SharePoint plays a major role in extending and opening information access within the company.
Major challenges of SP are clearly scalability (databases volumes limitations), search performance, inconsistency in preservation, etc.
