SharePoint, NewsGator and the Enterprise

I’ve declared my SharePoint fanboy status in the past – most recently in my post titled SharePoint MagicGone are the years where I’d tease my friends at Microsoft about giving away SharePoint by including it in EA contracts – the thing has evolved into a critical piece of software for me and my organization (oh – and a really big piece of business for Microsoft.)

Today, NewsGator and Microsoft announced a partnership around SharePoint.   As part of this, NewsGator announced general availability of the new NewsGator Social Sites product.  NewsGator Social Sites is tightly integrated with both SharePoint and NewsGator Enterprise Server (which you can also buy as a hosted product – ala NewsGator Enterprise On-Demand.)

Jeff Nolan – who recently joined NewsGator to run corporate development – has a concise post about the NewsGator Social Site Launch along with a handful of screenshots.  When I have some time, I’ll put up a more comprehensive explanation of how I use this stuff to manage the mass of stuff that flows through my computer.

If your company uses SharePoint, you have to take a look at this stuff.  And I’m not just saying that because I’m a NewsGator investor.
