Yes, some employees are rejecting SharePoint

leave a comment »

SharePoint is unquestionably a success from a licensing perspective, but dig behind the firewall and the picture looks more chequered. For example in a uSamp survey last year, 80 percent of organizations using SharePoint said employees continue to share documents as email attachments. (…)

Even where SharePoint is used, people aren’t truly collaborating with it. Team sites are often really document graveyards where content is stored once collaboration has stopped. Other social features such as blogs and My Sites have very low adoption rates or just pockets of activity. Even celebrated case studies are not about widespread adoption but localized success stories. (…)

To a large extent this rejection is passive, i.e. it’s a failure to adopt born of inertia rather than tasting the SharePoint sprouts and then spitting them out. This comes from years of ingrained habits about what workplace collaboration is: email, attachments and network drives. That in itself is not SharePoint’s fault – Google Wave hit similar challenges, for example. (…)

However SharePoint doesn’t help either. It’s highly complex, and some of the collaboration patterns are quite sophisticated, such as metadata, versioning and workflow. It makes it hard to selectively switch these elements off so that people can learn progressively. Moreover, the user interface is particularly unpleasant. It’s fiddly and lacks the visual appeal of modern websites. (…)

None of these issues are insurmountable

Searching by chemical structures into a SharePoint environment

with one comment

Authors of this article have assembled different features to allow a user to search by chemical structures or reactions into the company content managed by SharePoint.

The use of SharePoint® collaboration software for content management has become a critical part of today’s drug discovery process. SharePoint 2010 software has laid a foundation which enables researchers to collaborate and search on various contents.

The amount of data generated during a transition of a single compound from preclinical discovery to commercialization can easily range in terabytes, thus there is a greater demand of a chemically aware search algorithm that supplements SharePoint which enables researchers to query for information in a more intuitive and effective way.

Thus by supplementing SharePoint with Chemically Aware™ features provides a great value to the pharmaceutical and biotech companies and makes drug discovery more efficient. Using several tools we have integrated SharePoint with chemical, compound, and reaction databases, thereby improving the traditional search engine capability and enhancing the user experience. (…)

CASP uses SharePoint software to run most of its processes, but to get the chemically rich features it uses tools like Accelrys JDraw and Pipeline Pilot to help render the chemical structure and help search documents with embedded chemical structures. Using the Accelrys Direct cartridge, one can perform various types of structure searches like Sub Structure similarity, Flex match, or exact structure similarity. One can also connect to the Pipeline Pilot protocol and retrieve information like IUPAC name, or any of the molecular properties in a SharePoint database list.
