leave a comment »

According this study, SharePoint is especially good at:

  • Search
  • Social network
  • Tagging
  • Workflow



There is a growing market for integrated web-based platforms to support team collaboration and knowledge management within enterprises. This survey examines Enterprise 2.0 tools in detail and derives a unifying multi-dimensional classification and evaluation framework, the so called Services Catalog. For each dimension several objective criteria to characertize the functional capabilities of a given tool are identified. The identified services focus on the “out-of-the-box” functionality visible to the end-user. 

Based on this schema a detailed description of commercial and open source tools is provided.

Results of the survey are available in this article:
