SharePoint Conference

Well, we made it to Las Vegas for the Microsoft's second SharePoint Conference. Scheduled to be announced at this year's event is SharePoint 2010. The next generation of Microsoft' ECM/collaboration/portal platform. Preparing right now a keynote from Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer on the launch. Last night's pre-conference exhibitor floor party was buzzing. Word is that there are something like 7,000 registrants here at the Mandalay Bay, and the registration lines certainly overwhelmed the staff. The exhibition floor was teeming with Microsoft developers and other IT types. There are quite a few document imaging vendors on hand. Last night we saw booths from KnowledgeLake, Hyland, Laserfiche, eCopy/Nuance, Kofax, Canon, Fujitsu, Kodak, EMC, GoScan, Psigen, AtalaSoft, Informative Graphics, SpringCM, BlueThread and I'm sure we're missing a few. Systems integrator KeyMark is also exhibiting.

Incidentally, we caught up with Mike Stuhley from GoScan who told us his company has developed a booming business capturing information on Swine Flu vaccines. He said GoScan, a fairly small Southern California-based ISV with a very easy-to-use capture interface, has landed something like five statewide contracts, as well as several counties...

This promises to be an exciting show, and we'll have complete coverage in our next newsletter.
