I still remember the first time I started teaching courses involving instruction on InfoPath 2003 (back in early 2005). It was a product way ahead of it’s time – completely built to be based on and handle XML like no other Office application. A great way to create and manage dynamic forms with or without SharePoint. No one knew where it was headed, but it had a special feel about it. Not many companies adopted it at that time due to its lack of support for web forms, but with the release of forms services (to serve web forms using SharePoint Server Enterprise), it took off like wildfire. Companies were formed solely focusing on InfoPath support, products and training (like my good buddies at Qdabra and Texcel systems ) and loads of companies were using it to replace their everyday business forms.
