Along Microsoft's schools frontline, Gerald Haigh finds SharePoint as an exit from ICT managed services
I can fearlessly confess that even though I’ve been writing about Microsoft SharePoint for several years, I’m still not very good at explaining what it is – even to myself.
I’ll tell you something else. I bet I’m not the only one. I think it was Tony Sheppard (@grumbledook) who first pointed out to me that users across all sectors of business and service can have such different experiences of SharePoint that they simply won’t recognise each other’s descriptions of it. In one way, it’s the old story of The Blind Men and the Elephant, put so eloquently by John Godfrey Saxe many years before SharePoint.
