발머, 셰어포인트의 미래를 말하다

MS CEO가 곧 출시될 셰어포인트를 적극 알리고 나섰다.

발머는 지난 19일 라스베가스에서 개최한 마이크로소프트(MS) 셰어포인트 컨퍼런스 2009에서 셰어포인트 서버 2010을 “협력, 정보 공유와 탐색 추구의 중심”이라고 표현했다.

셰어포인트 서버 2010은 더 빠르고 정확한 기업 탐색 기능에 초점을 둬 특화시킨 도구막대와 리본 UI, 소셜 태깅과 문서생명주기관리와 업무연결성서비스 요소를 포함한 새로운 기능을 갖췄다.

이날 MS는 셰어포인트 서버 2010과 MS 오피스 2010 공개 베타 버전을 컨퍼런스에서 발표하고 11월중 사용할 수 있을 것이라고 밝혔다.

셰어포인트 서버 2010과 오피스 2010은 클라우드 환경에 대응한다. MS는 데스크톱 기반에서 제품과 플랫폼이 점차 온라인에서도 가용하도록 만드는 전략을 취하고 있다.

외신들은 최근 떠오른 “구글 앱스 등 클라우드기반 제품들이 데스크톱 전용이었던 오피스 기능을 클라우드에 이식하도록 MS를 자극했다”고 지적했다.

발머는 클라우드 환경에서도 사용가능한 “셰어포인트 온라인” 버전을 소개했다.

셰어포인트 온라인은 엑셀이나 인포패스폼 서비스 등 조직 전체에 걸쳐 상호작용적 형태로 관리와 공유가 가능한 기업실무 맞춤형 기능이 들어있다.

또한 발머는 “클라우드 솔루션인 셰어포인트 온라인은 사용자가 실행환경을 선택할 수 있도록 고안됐다”며 “설치된 상태나 클라우드 환경, 또는 이를 혼용하는 것도 가능하다”고 설명했다.

한편 윈도 7 출시가 걸린 이번 주는 MS 경영진에게 셰어포인트 등 관련 제품군 영업 효율을 높일 수 있는 기회라고 볼 수 있다. 이들은 셰어포인트가 클라우드 중심의 어플리케이션과 서비스에 초점을 둬 재정비된 플랫폼이라고 소개했다.

발머는 “인력과 업무에 따라 문서관리, BI, 기업 탐색 등을 위해 구매해온 소프트웨어는 모두 분리된 결제, 관리 인프라, 비용 기반이다”라며 “이를 통합시키는 것이 높은 비용효율을 이루는 길이다”고 말했다.

Ballmer Calls SharePoint the ‘Center’ of Microsoft’s Innovation

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer used the platform of his keynote address at the Microsoft SharePoint Conference in Vegas to stress how SharePoint Server 2010 will embrace the cloud and streamline enterprise search for increasingly massive corporations. Both SharePoint Server 2010 and Office 2010 are embracing the cloud, as Microsoft seeks to shift its strategy from primarily desktop-based to one where its products and platforms live increasingly online.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer used his keynote address at Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2009 in Las Vegas to frame SharePoint Server 2010 as “the center” of Microsoft’s attempts to collaborate, find and share information.

Microsoft used the Conference to announce that public betas of both Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 and Microsoft Office 2010 would be available in November.

As the company ramps up this week towards its launch of Windows 7, Ballmer and other executives have been casting SharePoint and other products as the keys to increased efficiency for businesses. Key to that efficiency, they argue, is SharePoint 2010’s enterprise search and collaboration capabilities, as well as the platform’s renewed focus on cloud-centric applications and services.

“The amount of software people and businesses have been buying for document management, for business intelligence, for enterprise search, those are all separate purchases, separate infrastructure to manage, separate cost bases,” Ballmer said on Oct. 19, according to a transcript of the event, adding that SharePoint allows users to “bring those together in a very, very I think cost-effective way.”

At the center of Microsoft’s streamlined enterprise search is technology from Redmond’s acquisition of FAST Search & Transfer in 2008, which has been integrated into SharePoint 2010 in order to speed the search of up to hundreds of thousands of documents.

SharePoint 2010 also embraces the cloud, Ballmer suggested, with the introduction of SharePoint Online.

“Our cloud solution, SharePoint Online, is designed to give you choice,” he told the audience. “Not only can you run some things on-premise, and other things in the cloud, but you can mix and match between the two environments. Maybe you don’t want to move your line of business data to the cloud, and you want to run BCS connectivity on-premise, and then run a part of your SharePoint environment in the cloud.”

SharePoint Online is designed with enterprise-ready features such as Excel Services and InfoPath Forms Services, which allows for the sharing and management of interactive forms across an organization.

SharePoint’s cloud aspects mirror those of Microsoft’s Office 2010. While traditionally seated firmly on the desktop, the rise of cloud-based productivity platforms such as Google Apps has led Microsoft to experiment with porting a good deal of Office functionality into the cloud.

Specifically, Microsoft plans on offering Office as a hosted subscription service, in addition to the regular desktop/on-premises version. Microsoft Live subscribers will also be able to access, for free, online versions of OneNote, Excel, Word and PowerPoint that include stripped-down functionality. The full version of Office 2010 will allow users to do more than create, view and save documents.

“With SharePoint 2010, we’re providing a much greater depth of features in the cloud,” Ballmer added. “So you get almost all your end-user capabilities in SharePoint 2010 in the cloud, and you will get a range of developer features. You won’t get all of the full trust APIs in the cloud, but you will get a very robust Sandbox environment in the cloud that can work quite, quite well.”

SharePoint Online, however, differs somewhat from SharePoint functionality for building Internet sites. SharePoint Server 2010 will include a number of tools for running Internet-based tools either on-premises, in the cloud, or through a hybrid solution.

“Our toolkits do include very nice Web content management and multimedia, and multilingual capabilities,” Ballmer said. “We can facilitate end user publishing without direct IT involvement, and for many dynamic Internet-facing Web sites that’s super-important.”

SharePoint has traditionally served as Microsoft’s core product for enterprise search and connectivity, but the rise of social networking as an increasingly vital tool of business and the rapidly expanding size of enterprise IT infrastructure has led Redmond to attempt a fairly substantial revamp for its 2010 iteration.

In addition to focusing on faster and more accurate enterprise search, SharePoint Server 2010 includes several new additions, including a Ribbon User Interface with specialized toolbars, Deep Office Integration with elements such as social tagging and document lifecycle management, and Business Connectivity Services that connect lines-of-business data and Web services to SharePoint Server and Office 2010 capabilities.
