    While Mark makes some good points…I can’t say I agree with all he writes here. Indeed, I think Mark has missed some important technical points that differentiate SharePoint and MindTouch. Rather than documenting these here I’ll simply refer you to this video.

    It’s also interesting to note: “One feature that struck me as powerful (maybe not to privacy advocates) is the ability to data mine emails (you must be using Exchange) for approved keywords. If you want to see how often the phrase “Enterprise 2.0” is being used in employee email, SharePoint will tell you.” Yah, that capability is pretty awesome. BRILLIANT engineering went into that. Oh and it was developed by my co-founder here at MindTouch Steve Bjorg. 🙂

    With respect to the data mining of email in SharePoint, I failed to point out this does much much more than simple search queries on email. It’s a full blown expert engine.

    Is there an updated version of this post? Would like to see the latest version of both products being compared.

    Francois, I plan to create one shortly.
