The SharePoint Marketplace

The 2007 release of SharePoint and the Microsoft Office 2007 suite marks a significant milestone in the effort to create a single unified platform for information-based work. This is the third version of SharePoint products and technologies to be released by Microsoft, and it is substantially more powerful than any of its predecessors. Over the next three to five years the effect of this release will be felt by all organizations that have an infrastructure based on Microsoft technology.

As of this writing, the market for enterprise collaboration software is somewhere in the neighborhood of $1.5 billion and is projected to approach $2.5 billion by 2010. By all accounts, SharePoint products and technologies have the largest number of licensees in this market, with volume exceeding 30 million. However, these numbers don't tell the whole story because this release of SharePoint and Office clearly extend beyond the market for enterprise collaboration into areas such as content management and business intelligence.
