Vander Wal on Sharepoint

If your IT department has not yet deployed Sharepoint get them to read this post from Thomas Vanderwal which includes the following telling quote:

“We went from 5 silos in our organization to hundreds in a month after deploying SharePoint”. They continue, “There is great information being shared and flowing into the system, but we don’t know it exists, nor can we easily share it, nor do much of anything with that information.”

Thomas' post reflects accurately the sort of stories I have been consistently hearing over the last year or so.
