Is It a Virus?

    SharePoint is one of the fastest selling Microsoft server technologies. Since launching the product in 2001, Microsoft has sold over100 million licences of the product. The product has continued to achieve a compound growth rate in license sales of about 15% over the past two years. At the QLD SQL Server User Group tonight the presentation was on integrating Reporting Services in SharePoint and the session was packed to the rafters. From the feedback in the presentation it appears that many organisations have deployed SharePoint but are still struggling to achieve business value from the product.
    I read an article recently that described SharePoint as a virus due to the way that it is spreading throughout the enterprise. SharePoint is often deployed as a collaboration tool and people then start to look at how they leverage some of the other features. One of the first things that most companies want to do with SharePoint once the list of birthdays for all staff members have been entered is to integrate a BI Solution. The problem I see with this is that SharePoint is just one more technology that a DBA needs to learn.
