Hyper.Net is an enterprise Web Service that automatically re-purposes documents and other information managed in SharePoint and other document storage solutions into user-optimized, multi-format content that is ready for deployment in archiving systems, intranets, information portals, Web sites and social networks. The product is widely used internationally to completely automate the flow of corporate information to the end-user community. The new version, which offers full support for SharePoint 2010 and all Microsoft Office 2010 formats, also provides full, unrestricted support for SharePoint Foundation, a battery of new content re-purposing functions, new features enabling the rapid creation of compliance solutions and an improved administrator’s interface. A special highlight of the new version is a Web Service interface that enables organizations to use Hyper.Net as a centralized, platform-independent service provider that can accept transformation requests from any application or technology and return the published results synchronously or asynchronously.
While attending a major ECM conference earlier this year, it was obvious that Box.net had decided to use the event as their “coming out” party. Box.net is a cloud content management company that is positioning itself directly against SharePoint 2010. In fact, they are claiming that 73% of Fortune 500 companies are already using their service.
On their website, Box.net invites people to compare the cost of SharePoint to Box.net through the use of a simple calculator. So being the inquisitive type, I decided to give it a try!
Have you analyzed your document management challenges and realized that it takes too much effort, wastes valuable dollars, is not being adopted by your users or does not fulfill the needs of your organization? Read how the Microsoft Content Management Partner of the Year, KnowledgeLake addresses these concerns with Enterprise Content Management solutions for SharePoint:
Connect – Save electronic documents to SharePoint from any desktop application. Connect enables users to save content on an ad-hoc basis – such as Office documents, PDF files and email messages in a single step. Improve user adoption and empower everyone in the organization to be content contributors.
One problem that we hear about from customers when we talk about document conversion to PDF in SharePoint is the inability to merge multiple documents into a single PDF file.
There are a lot of uses for document assembly, the most common being the creation of proposals for RFPs (Requests for Proposals), and Meeting Books for Boards or Trustees.
Creating a single, cohesive PDF file from a collection of documents in different formats such as Microsoft Word, financial information in Excel, engineering data in AutoCAD DWG format, PowerPoint presentations, etc., produces a more professional looking result, and makes it much more efficient for the reader to use this information. The merged PDF file can be made much easier for users to navigate through its contents with the addition of a table of contents and PDF bookmarks for the entire document, and an index of terms used along with a hyperlink to the exact location
Microsoft has released various recommendations about how large content data bases should be in SharePoint in order to still allow for optimal performance . Gökhan’s article explores the complexities of these recommendations and how to best go about managing large amounts of data in SharePoint. This blog from Gökhan will serve as extensions to the topic that Gökhan has already explored in his piece.
I wrote this while searching for ways to optimize my SharePoint 2010 farm. At the time I didn’t have many content databases, but the few that I did have were quite large. I had heard about the recommended 200 GB limitation from Microsoft and decided to do some further research in order to make sure that I operate a fully supported SP2010 environment. I found an article on Microsoft TechNet that mentions recommended terms limits, thresholds and boundaries

As SharePoint Use Increases, Governance Decreases by Christian Buckley, Director of Product Evangelism, AxcelerBlog Posts
In a recent CIOUpdate.com article entitled, Prolific SharePoint Sites Undermine Governance, technology writer Jake Frazier outlined a common problem with the growing number of SharePoint customers: the uncontrolled growth of SharePoint sites, and how it impacts governance. SharePoint is proliferating in the marketplace, with KMWorld reporting SharePoint licenses worldwide at more than 130 million. The more sites that are created and the more content added to a SharePoint environment, the more difficult it can be to change course, correct mistakes and implement a governance model. But the business value to having a formal governance model in place is enormous.

It is strange how many developers wince when they face SharePoint and become melancholy when talking about workflows. Workflows are not just like programming, or something very special or something very complicated or something very limited or something for documents. Some people tried to solve simple tasks with SharePoint workflows, but failed somewhere when it became clear that they cannot read the manual from the middle and they have no time to read it from the very beginning.
