Why SharePoint 2013 Isn't for You (CMSWire)
There’s a lot of noise on the street since the announcement of SharePoint 2013. We’re headed towards the largest SharePoint conference of the year in Las Vegas this November and it’s only going to get louder. Where does that leave you, the end user of SharePoint? About where you were before the announcement came out, I would think. It should not affect you at all.
SharePoint Wins with the ECM Ecosystem
I started a conversation with my friend and ECM expert Chris Riley a few months back (Is SharePoint 2010 Really Ready for ECM?) in which we explored some of the enterprise content management capabilities of SharePoint, cutting through the competitor semantics and FUD, to agree or disagree with Microsoft's claims that the platform was now ready. Our conclusion was that yes, it is not only ready, but in some areas is clearly moving the needle for the industry, raising the bar, shuffling the deck, pinning the tail on the donkey, and dozens of other obscure but possibly relevant cliché linguistic expressions.
Office 365 Goes Consumer for Growth (ZDNet)
Microsoft plans to give Office 365, its cloud-based productivity suite, a makeover to include more consumer-based features and user experience, which would make it more usable and appeal to the younger generation of workers to increase enterprise adoption of the tool. Gerald Leo, business group lead for Singapore at Microsoft's Office division, said familiarity with the software giant's Office suite has helped enterprise customers transit from on-premise use to a cloud-based system.
Here Comes Microsoft’s Cloud OS & Trouble for VMware (SYS-CON Media)
Microsoft said it would push Windows Server 2012 out the door in early September and it did on Tuesday, after a year of public test builds. It positioned it as the "cornerstone" of its cloud strategy, its "Cloud OS" for private and hosted clouds and a building block for Windows Azure. It said "the Cloud OS does what operating systems have always done: manage hardware and provide a platform for applications. But it also expands to include services and technologies that have not previously been considered part of an operating system."
Slew of New Smartphones Shed Light on Enterprise Mobility Evolution (NetworkWorld)
New smartphones this week from Nokia-Microsoft and Motorola-Verizon Wireless-Google, with Apple's iPhone expected next week, shed light on how mobility is evolving for enterprise IT groups. The focus has been less on hardware razzle-dazzle and more on what the phones can do as mobile computers.
Five Reasons to Switch to Windows 8 (TechWorld)
The clock is winding down to the official launch of Windows 8. With only a few weeks to go until Windows 8 hits the street, businesses and consumers will have to decide whether to invest in the latest Microsoft operating system, or just stick with what they've got. Perhaps you're not fazed by the Windows 8 modern UI, or by Microsoft embracing the touchscreen interface. Even so, here are five reasons to consider making the move to Windows 8:
Microsoft Puts Windows 8 Users at Risk with Missing Flash Update (ZDNet)
If you use Internet Explorer 10 with Windows 8 today, you are exposing yourself to potentially serious security risks. On August 21, 2012, Adobe released a batch of security updates for its Flash Player. According to the security bulletin, “These updates address vulnerabilities that could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.”
Around the Blogosphere
Xbox Kinect Comes to SharePoint (Zevenseas)
This blog post is well overdue, but I’m very excited to announce our release of “Xbox Kinect for SharePoint”. Some of you may have seen it demonstrated at both the SharePoint Evolution conference (Don’t miss it next year) in the UK, or the SharePoint Australia/New Zealand conferences (don’t miss ‘em!). The basic idea was to have a bit of a play around with both (a) Kinect as an interface for SharePoint and (b) a metro UI for SharePoint. It was a Zevenseas Lab project by Mayur Tendulkar and Tinu Thomas (who I’m sure will have a Twitter account soon) and you can try it yourself through our Codeplex project.
Phased Rollout of SharePoint 2013 Preview (The SharePoint Guys)
Many customers are keen to evaluate and understand the technology impact of new product versions. In the SharePoint space, there are many customers running the SharePoint 2010 product version currently in their production environment but are keen to understand how SharePoint 2013 Preview can help or improve their capability. Performing a full migration of the products can present significant risk that businesses are not willing to carry, especially with Technical Preview versions of the product. A possible approach that could be considered, is a phased rollout. This approach results in an environment where SharePoint 2010 continues to be the main focus but consumes some of the new SharePoint 2013 Preview services. Testing a phased rollout in a pre-production or QA environment can put customers in a good position before doing the RTM upgrade. It allows to understand the impact and change of the new services and capabilities as well as properly plan the transition and rollout of new services when the product is released. Please be aware that SharePoint 2013 Preview is for evaluation purposes only and should not be used to run live and business critical systems.
SharePoint 2013 Profile Exclusion Filters (ARB Security Solutions)
All of the profiles from the containers you identify will be synchronized by SharePoint. The exception will be if you decide to exclude profiles through the use of a filter. You can create a filter to exclude those user accounts that have been disabled. Filters consist of a set of clauses that a connector joins. There are three parts to each clause are Attribute, Value, and Operator.

Installing Bamboo SP Analyzer (The Bamboo Team Blog)
Bamboo SP Analyzer is a free tool with which SharePoint administrators can unlock the secrets within their SharePoint farms. As a utility deployed to their Central Administration site, SP Admins can audit which Web Parts are deployed to the individual pages in a Site, Site Collection, or even a Web Application. SharePoint admins can further narrow the scope, including specifying the assembly associated with a Web Part for a smaller set of returned results. The resulting CSV-formatted file allows the administrator to open the report in Excel to perform additional analysis, and includes:
