The rapid growth and adoption of Microsoft SharePoint reinforce the role of collaboration in information-rich organizations. Microsoft's fastest-growing business software product of all time, SharePoint is becoming a mission-critical resource. A recent survey showed that 29% of current SharePoint adopters rate it as one of their top three IT initiatives, and 82% of these rate it in the top ten. Without proper planning and governance, the rapid growth and adoption of SharePoint can pose a myriad of IT challenges, including keeping pace with needed storage provisioning, protecting data, scaling deployments, and controlling costs while meeting business needs.
