Observations at 2009 SharePoint Conference
In one word, BIG. The 2009 SharePoint Conference attracted over 7,000 paying attendees, making it one of the largest Microsoft events of 2009. This is remarkable when you compare it to the 2009 Microsoft TechEd event, which drew about the same number of attendees and covers all Microsoft solutions. The buzz I heard on the show floor was that the event was "everything I expected and more" and that "the event should be offered twice a year."
One reason for its success is the rapid climb of SharePoint as an enterprise content management solution. Organizations are rapidly deploying SharePoint to better manage Office files and this is one reason for the strong interest in how to deploy and manage SharePoint. Second is the strong partner ecosystem that supports SharePoint. Hundreds of partners participated in the event and shared their tips and strategies on improving SharePoint.
SharePoint will continue to drive large audiences. SharePoint is a semi-customizable solution that in some sense depends on the creative sharing of the community to achieve its full potential. It is this active exchange of information that will continue to make SharePoint gatherings a success. ... Bob Spurzem

Though Microsoft has been slow to reveal details about the new offering, its announcement is shaking the archiving market and the adjacent markets for e-discovery and compliance. In this webcast, David Ferris cuts through the confusion about E2010 and explains what the product's archiving features do, what they don't do, and how the technology is likely to evolve. A Q&A session gives attendees the opportunity to ask questions.
