My name is Jim Masson, and I’m the Group Program Manager for the Enterprise Content Management team within SharePoint. My team is part of the engineering team, and is responsible for designing the features around content management, including managing documents, web content, rich media assets, records, and a new service for managing shared content types and taxonomy.
With the coming launch of SharePoint 2010, this seemed like a good time to ramp up the ECM team blog, and start a conversation about the SharePoint 2010 release. In the lead up to the offical launch of the product and beyond, various members of the team will be posting details about the major feature areas and features within ECM in SharePoint 2010, including design overviews, walkthroughs, best practices, and eventually interesting case studies. I hope you will subscribe and participate with us in the conversation
When speaking with customers about the content management features in SharePoint 2010, we often refer to the release as being about ECM for the Masses. I wanted to take this first post to outline a little bit about our approach to designing and building SharePoint 2010, and how that has helped us deliver on that vision.
It is my hope that, as we go through the features over the next several months that you will see the impact of those pillars on the product, and how they have helped us to deliver ECM for the masses.
