Smartlogic's lead SharePoint developer Charlie Holland publishes technical guide 'Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Web Applications, The Complete Reference' (McGraw-Hill 2011); covering all Sharepoint integration solutions including Enterprise Search, Social Computing and Enterprise Document Management, the book describes how & why 3rd party solutions, such as Semaphore, are needed.
In his recent publication 'Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Web Applications, The Complete Reference', Smartlogic’s Lead SharePoint Developer and author Charlie Holland provides a comprehensive resource for those wishing to secure SharePoint integration solutions and leverage the revolutionary development capabilities in SharePoint 2010 to build web-based business applications.
Despite its deployment by organisations and enterprises all over the world, Microsoft SharePoint, even with the enhancements provided in the 2010 evolution, still cannot be seen as a comprehensive information management solution.

Charlie Holland, outlining his reasons for producing the book, asserts, "There's a steep learning curve when it comes to SharePoint development. This is compounded by the fact that many organizations assume that because the platform is based on standard Microsoft development technologies, a developer will be able to pick it up quickly. However, this is not always the case, and unfortunately is an oversight that can lead to many project overruns and a general perception that SharePoint might be more hassle than it was worth. SharePoint 2010 Web Applications was written to address the needs of these developers and acts as a single source of reference, easing the learning curve".

While SharePoint has the capability to develop workflows and search content, it remains wholly reliant on its users to add the metadata.

In the book, Charlie Holland looks at the ways in which third party applications, such as Semaphore, the Enterprise Semantic Platform from Smartlogic, can provide a complete, comprehensive SharePoint solution that addresses this metadata gap.
Jeremy Bentley, CEO of Smartlogic explains: "In any corporate SharePoint implementation, metadata is critical. If you know what something is about, you can put processes in place to manage it and make it more findable. Any organisations designing a large SharePoint deployment recognize that quality metadata will be a critical factor in the system's overall success. Content Types and Site Columns show Microsoft understands this, as does the further extension of the product with the Term Store in SharePoint 2010.

"Smartlogic’s tightly integrated automatic classification and taxonomy governance capabilities extend both the SharePoint 2007 and 2010 products to help enterprise deployments manage their content and the users, find, discover and re-use it."

Charlie Holland, MCTS, MCPD, MCT & MCSE, is currently the lead SharePoint developer at Smartlogic. He has 15 years’ experience developing software for some of the world’s best known companies, including IBM, Microsoft, Sony and Hewlett Packard. As a SharePoint aficionado since the early days, he has been exclusively engaged in designing and delivering applications based on the features offered by the SharePoint platform for a number of UK clients.
Holland wrote the book primarily for a developer audience and assumes familiarity with Microsoft Development tools and technologies. However, as each section provides a non-technical overview of the features described, highlighting potential business uses, it easily serves as a useful reference for system architects and other members of a project team who are interested in a higher level view.
On the subject of Smartlogic's Semaphore as a SharePoint solution in itself, Holland adds, "I'm extremely impressed with Smartlogic's technical integration. The effort they have made to use the native Term Store, which is not the most straightforward codebase in [SharePoint] 2010 and extend it to provide real control over taxonomies and auto-classification capability is commendable".

'Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Web Applications, The Complete Reference' by Charlie Holland is published by McGraw-Hill (ISBN: 0071744568 / 9780071744560, copyright © 2011) and can be found on Amazon and other reputable book sellers
