I was lucky enough to be able to go to the SharePoint Showcase at ICS Basingstoke last Thursday. ICS had organised a large number of SharePoint Vendors/ISV’s to come and present their latest SharePoint offerings, the vendors and their relevant software were:
- K2 – BlackPoint Workflow Studio
- Neverfail – Neverfail for MOSS
- Quest Software – SharePoint Backup/Recovery and Administration
- AvePoint – SharePoint Backup/Recovery
- Tzunami – Web Content Migration
- Metalogix – Web Content Migration
- Bamboo Solutions – Web Parts for MOSS & WSS
I want to say a big thanks to ICS for organising a great event, it was great to get all the vendors under one roof to get a real demo of the products they are offering. ICS are planning to run one of these every quarter so check their website – www.ics.net for upcoming events!
There were even a few freebie giveaways, as well as the usual pens etc one company were offering free remote control helicopters! :p
I was very impressed with Bamboo Solutions and the wide range of webparts they were offering, they even have a few free ones, check them out at www.bamboosolutions.com. In addition I was given a one to one demo of K2′s new workflow product – BlackPoint. I was very impressed at how easily a complex SharePoint workflow could be created with a few mouse clicks whilst designing this in the Workflow Foundation would take thousands of lines of code.
