SharePoint Showcase 2008

20 10 2008

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 – 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 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.
