Document storage. Security. Redaction of sensitive data. Deployment. Governance. Policies. The cloud.

These are just a few of the areas where Microsoft SharePoint Server can be extended to create an even more powerful ECM and collaboration platform.

More than 55 third-party software providers will be at SPTechCon in San Francisco Feb. 7–9, making the conference the largest independent exhibit hall for SharePoint products. Many of these software providers will be making announcements at the conference, which we will dutifully report in this space in the coming weeks.

If you’re in the Bay Area, you can walk in and register for an SPTechCon “Exhibits Only” pass to meet these software providers. And, if you want to sit in on some educational classes, registration for the technical portion of the conference remains open.

Come and see some of the way-interesting ways these software companies are extending SharePoint and increasing its functionality.

Hope to see you there!
