    I am thinking that SharePoint provides a great deal more in terms of functionality especially including 3rd party products to leverage for document capture, scanning and BI in terms of PerformancePoint. We have a Microsoft EA which provides us with free enterprise-level SP. Most of the issues I see around SP are just issues related to proper implementation, roll-out, adoption – ie. Governance. Some of my users want to go with QTASK but to me that is like going with a small niche player with limited functionality. What is your take on QTASK versus SP?

      Hi Paula– thanks for your comments! I have seen Qtask Demo’d and have even talked with their sales reps and have an account. BUT I too am a SP fan. I think with so many enterprises having MS products in house already it is a natural to use SP. It integrates with Office and has an interface that is familiar to most. I think that in whatever solution you go with however it is important to map out and do analysis up front. All products can be disasterous or incredible dependent upon that! Adoption is key! Folks seeing the importance and value of using a collaborative tool– replacement of the old ways of doing things (ie email, network drives, etc) and using the new methods to share ideas, information and documents. Good luck and keep me posted. Happy Collaborating!
