PLM Prompt: Office and SharePoint 2010 public betas now available for download

Microsoft finally made available beta versions of Office 2010 and SharePoint 1010 yesterday. So, I finally have an account to try it out. What are the most interesting scenarios to test in my view?

1. Accessing external data using SharePoing 2010 composites.

2. Collaboration with people outside of your organization using Office Web version.

3. Collaborating on Bill of Material data using Excel Services.

4. Using community services.

I had chance to talk about PLM and Office/SharePoint 2010 in my previous posts:

SharePoint 2010 – Is it good for PLM?

SharePoint 2010 Communities and PLM Social Demands

SharePoint 2010 for Collaborative Product Development Applications

Why PLM Need to Learn about SharePoint 2010 Composites?

New Office 2010 features and PLM integration

Office 2010 and PLM On Demand Solutions

Initial prediction – what MS Office 2010 Technologies can bring to PLM?

I’d be interested to collaborate with other people evaluating SharePoint/Office 2010 these days.

Best, Oleg

  • Wow, great blog. I don’t have time to read it all right now, but I have added it to my Favorites. I love reading other sites about CMS! I don’t have time to read everything here right now, I found your site while looking for something else on Bing. But I’ve bookmarked your homepage and will visit it regularly to read your latest postings. I have been working with CMS programs for eight years myself. There are so many great options for us in the open source community. Visit my site if you’d like to read more. Thanks again for this blog – it is really great.
