About Owen Allen - The MOSS Garden

I work as a SharePoint Product Manager, and I work with ISVs that provide solutions that integrate with SharePoint. 

I can’t wait to see where SharePoint will pop up next, and which partner solutions will be instrumental in the next months and years in helping to carry SharePoint in new and interesting directions.  I hope to comment and bring you stories about this next journey.

Please feel fee to contact me at any time using the Email link on the sidebar of this blog.
