While some enterprise content management users are eagerly awaiting the release of Microsoft”s SharePoint 2010, one company is looking to compliment that technology.
In the lead-up to the SharePoint 2010 launch date, Computer Software Innovations released Voodoo, its SharePoint-based design toolkit aimed at making enterprise content development simpler for the IT staffs of schools, the company announced recently.
The ECM help kit assists IT developers by creating a navigation menu with visual clues and icons for users to find content management tools in SharePoint”s large respositories.
Robert Ginsburg, chief technology officer for CSI, says that with a familiar look and feel, SharePoint "can be deployed rapidly with less disruption to current practices in an educational environment and with less demand for training and support."
The Voodoo release is a continuation of a partnership between CSI and Microsoft. It comes after CSI”s development of CSI@K12, which helped schools through cloud computing applications, which the company put in the public domain.
At the end of last year, CSI announced that it had agreed with Microsoft to include its Microsoft Live@edu, which provides enterprise-class email and integration solutions for school computer networks, in CSI@K12.
