After 20+ years in the traditional Enterprise Content Management (ECM) space I have moved to Winshuttle as the Director of Strategic Alliances. Where I will get to extend the definition of what ECM is and to work on The Future of SharePoint (FOSP). I have written about the Convergence of Social Media and ECM in the past. At Winshuttle I will explore the intersection of traditional ERP systems – which generate mountains of content – and the role Microsoft SharePoint will play in aggregating and surfacing this information. To me this is the Future of SharePoint and Winshuttle is in a prime position to help make it happen.
Ironically not much has changed in my career path. If you want to read about my last transition take a look at this link. It seems I have always worked for companies that create “No Code” solutions to address complex business and technical challenges. Winshuttle is no different. At Winshuttle we make products that allow non-developers to access complex ERP systems and to do their jobs more effectively and efficiently. I envision a few future posts about this “No Code” thing. Stay tuned for these and if you have ideas about the FOSP let’s collaborate.
A few examples of No Code Solutions I have worked on include the following traditional ECM elements and the new one on the bottom related to SAP (and really any ERP / Big Data) solution.
- Content Creation
- Document Capture
- SAP Integration
My new role will allow me to continue to working in the Microsoft SharePoint world and will allow me the opportunity to expand into the SAP world. Which, to be quite honest, is really exciting. As mentioned above it allows me to work on what I call the Future of SharePoint (FOSP). I have a few posts in the works on this now and have a presentation ready for the next SharePoint Saturday and SharePoint TechCon events about the FOSP too. It also allows me to explore how ERP systems and the data contained within them can be a critical driver to the future of business success.
REQUEST: I am actively seeking partners that have expertise in SAP and SharePoint. If you have these skills call me or email me. If you have skills in one or the other … we should still talk. Opportunities Abound!
As most everyone that has been watching knows … There is a pent up demand for companies to leverage their SharePoint investments and there is the ever-present challenge for companies to get the most from their SAP (and other ERP) investments. Together we can help customers make the most of their investments. This is where the Future of SharePoint comes in.
