SharePoint Creating Whole New Industry

I was at Tech-Ed last week in boiling New Orleans, trying to eat as much seafood as possible before it goes away. At the show, there were two topics that really stood out: Privilege Management was huge, as were SharePoint third-party tools.

I didn't get a chance to meet all the SharePoint vendors, but did hit up a few. Some are startups focusing exclusively on collaboration, while others are existing vendors moving into this new space. Companies in this market include Idera, Quest, Metalogix, AvePoint, Tzunami, Vyapin and Axceler.

Areas include migration, configuration, administration, data integration, blog support and storage optimization.
