"The number of SharePoint deployments in the world today has six digits in it, and four-fifths of them suck."
As one of the suckees, I got a lot out of this article. Indeed, I have a meeting in ten minutes to discuss another potential SharePoint use here.
The problem I have is that I don't know when it is appropriate to use SharePoint vs. our existing traditional shared network folders. There's also the issue of user training. They already know how to use network folders, and I haven't found a reason to force them to do otherwise. I've never seen a 'working' collaboration configuration, so I don't know exactly what we're trying to accomplish.
Even within the IT department, we don't eat our own dog food. We're in the middle of an Active Directory migration. Most of the collaboration takes place in meetings; most updates are via e-mail. We have a few procedural documents in SP, but those are usually also e-mailed (as attachments, not as links to the SP site).
