SharePoint Awards Time

New SharePoint 2012

As the FA Cup approaches its final, hopefully with the Villa involved, it is time for me to announce all the finalists in my Andy Dale SharePoint Awards 2010.

Thank you for all the suggestions for whom to include this year in each category. I have spent considerable time checking out all of the suggestions and come up with five finalists in each of the ten categories. Thank you also to the Office Talk consultants for your input.

So far this year it has been a good year for both Microsoft Office SharePoint Server and Windows SharePoint Services with no major cock-ups. So I have replaced the ‘Biggest SharePoint Mess-up’ Award although if Microsoft release another Service Pack or put the launch date of SharePoint 2010 back I might bring it back.

Here are lists of all the chosen finalists in each category and you can start voting for the ones that you think should win at the end of this blog. As with programmes like ‘Dancing on Ice’ the scoring system will be in two halves. First half will be a rating between 1 and 5 based on how many online votes each finalist gets. The second half will be a score between 1 and 5 from our panel, of 12 SharePoint Experts, for each of the finalist. This will give each one a score out of 10. In the event of a tie as they are my Awards then I will have the final say on the winner. Hope that all made sense.

Is http://eu-shop.swatch.com actually SharePoint? Looking at the source it doesn't appear to be.
