Epic Microsoft fail

Google in preemptive strike on Microsoft Office 365

The Register says:

“Google Apps product manager Shan Sinha was once director of strategy for Microsoft SharePoint, Redmond’s longstanding effort to facilitate business collaboration over the net.

Sinha left Microsoft in the fall of 2007 to create DocVerse, a service that bypassed SharePoint, plugging Microsoft Office clients into Google Apps. Sharepoint, he says, just wasn’t working.

“Lots of people seemed to be adopting SharePoint, but few were really using it, ” he tells The Register. “SharePoint was one of Microsoft’s fastest growing business…but as it turns out, end users found it too complicated. It was too limited in how you could actually share documents and files.”

 

Too limited in how you could actually share documents and files? Novell had this functionality rock solid twenty years ago.  You can get Samba for free, now, that does the same.

What are Microsoft enterprise customers paying for?
