Lack of Talent Holding SharePoint Back

In my last item I shared some good SharePoint news. But not all is grand in SharePoint land. It seems there just aren't enough qualified people to keep up with the demand for new apps. That's at least according to Osterman Research, which argues that the lack of talent drives up the cost of managing SharePoint -- which is a rather staggering $46 a month. That ain't chump change for just one app.

Exchange, in contrast, only costs $15 to $25 a month to manage. To be fair, SharePoint does tend to require more customization, while a lot of Exchange installs offer quick and dirty e-mail and calendaring.
