Burton Group Institute Workshop to Provide Enterprise IT Strategies for Microsoft SharePoint 2007

SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 14, 2007 -- Burton Group, Inc. is hosting a one-day workshop in Boston that will provide enterprise technologists in-depth, technical strategies for organizations considering Microsoft SharePoint 2007.

The vendor-independent workshop, led by Burton Group collaboration and content management experts Peter O'Kelly and Homan Farahmand, will delve into the strategic SharePoint implications -- both positive and negative -- for enterprises to consider, including:

--  A review of the enterprise challenges Microsoft seeks to address with
    SharePoint 2007 (composed of Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and Microsoft
    Office SharePoint Server 2007)
--  Detailed analysis of SharePoint capabilities, maturity, and
--  Competitive landscape projections, with a focus on the emerging
    competitive landscape between Microsoft and IBM Lotus
"With everything from blogs to enterprise content management, SharePoint has the potential to help organizations collaborate and manage content more effectively," says Peter O'Kelly, vice president and research director. "But, if unsuccessfully deployed, SharePoint also has the potential to evolve into out-of-control content dissemination and explosive growth in unmanaged workspaces."

The full-day workshop is on April 25, 2007 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Hotel Marlowe in Boston, MA. More information can be found at
