Survey Results Reflect the Voice of the Microsoft Community

McLean, VA, US and Stevenage, UK – March 16, 2016

Concept Searching, the global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software, and developer of the Smart Content Framework, is pleased to announce the availability of its fourth annual SharePoint and Office 365 Survey. The survey is available now, to professionals who work in a SharePoint or Office 365 environment. Concept Searching will be offering to survey contributors the chance to win one free full conference pass to Microsoft Ignite, on September 26th – 30th in Atlanta, Georgia. In addition, the company will offer two prize drawings for Bose® SoundTrue® headphones, on April 15th and May 16th.  The survey closes on June 30th, and the winner of the free conference pass to Ignite will be announced no later than July 2nd. Rules and regulations can be accessed here.

Concept Searching initiated its annual survey four years ago, as a method of understanding the unique needs of SharePoint and Office 365 organizations. Since its inception, the survey has become more detailed, in order to determine organizations’ application priorities and infrastructure, and gain insight into issues such as security and compliance. The completed surveys are analyzed and used for historical comparison of the different priorities in Microsoft-centered organizations. Analysis is summarized, and a white paper is generated for public consumption. Last year’s white paper can be accessed here.

According to Martin Garland, President of Concept Searching, “The survey results are extremely important to us, and should be of value to the Microsoft community at large. The survey represents the voice of professionals working in organizations that are using SharePoint or Office 365. The aggregated survey responses are often at odds with reports from press and analysts, and can be eye-opening to us. As a software vendor, it is important for us to know the priorities of organizations, regardless of their interest in our products. The survey is a valuable tool for anyone seeking to understand the pulse of the Microsoft community.”
