Momentum 2011 – another year – another set of announcements

What happened at Momentum 2011

b) keeping its customers well informed of the progress that they are making, but to mention a few examples…

  • SharePoint – also really interested in this but, again, are we hearing anything new with regards to the EMC offering for integration with SharePoint?

It wasn’t until I spoke with a colleague, who made a similar comment, that I started to really think about this.

Then I saw this tweet from Jed Spink that I realised that others also had the same thought.


I appreciate that my view might not be a perfect one, and that there might be situations where I am wrong.

I want to hear what you think? Am I right? Or am I totally wrong?…
