SharePoint as a business-critical solution… As we say here in New Yawk, “Who’da thunk it?”

But as organizations mature their SharePoint implementations, and move toward bringing critical business data into product planning, financial performance management and other disciplines, problems can arise when trying to drive collaboration across those different teams.

Microsoft’s SharePoint team tomorrow is hosting a live Facebook chat titled “Business-critical solutions with SharePoint and SQL” at 11 a.m. Pacific time, during which your questions about building business-critical solutions will be answered.

The point of all this? As more parts of the organization get the business data that supports their responsibilities, business risk can be reduced, as any employee with access can analyze and act on that data to gain efficiencies and reduce cost.

That’s worth taking an hour of your day to learn about, wouldn’t you say?
