Leveraging the SharePoint 2010 capabilities

By Kristian Kalsing on Dec 13, 2010

Just as many customers are evaluating the potential of SharePoint 2010 in order to make a decision on when to upgrade their existing SharePoint environment, the Winshuttle Central team is looking closely at SharePoint 2010 from a software vendor’s perspective. Not only do we want to adequately support customers on SharePoint 2010, but the expanded capabilities of the latest SharePoint release also increases the potential of products that are built on top of SharePoint such as Central.

The next release of Central, version 10.1, will be fully compatible with SharePoint 2010. This means that regardless of whether customers are running SharePoint 2007 or 2010, they will be able to take full advantage of Central as the governance and process management platform for their Winshuttle deployment. Since SharePoint 2010 is available for 64-bit servers only, this also demands that Central10.1 will be fully supported on 64-bit hardware.

Our R&D team is also exploring the opportunities for going beyond basic compatibility and leveraging some of the new capabilities that SharePoint 2010 brings to the table. This entails building a number of prototype solutions of which some will eventually make it into the product. For obvious reasons, we can’t reveal exactly what we’re working on, but it will deepen the out-of-the-box SAP/SharePoint integration and the focus will continue to be on providing business users with the flexibility required to automate a broad range of business processes. Stay tuned for upcoming releases of Central.
