Our report answers the following questions:

  • Are people confused or generally unsure what best practice governance means for their specific SharePoint environment?
  • Due to multiple models for developing code and building apps, is managing the safety of this code more difficult?
  • Are developers struggling to build custom solutions in a way that will be ‘future proof’ and conform to best practice?
  • Is the rise of ‘citizen development’ putting companies at risk?

Matthias Einig – CEO at Rencore explains the focus of the report:

This is our third annual report that provides a deep insight into the way organizations use and customize SharePoint. In the past, we targeted a mostly development-oriented demographic, but due to the current functionality and nature of SharePoint & Office 365, and the potential impact customizing these platforms has on data security, we recognize that the customization topic effects a wider range of professionals and should be in the consciousness of many throughout the organizational chain – not just individuals with a technical background.

The report also features an exclusive interview with Christian Buckley, Microsoft Regional Director, Office Servers & Services MVP, and CEO of US-based company CollabTalk, discussing the findings of the report. Christian recently got ranked the number one SharePoint influencer worldwide.

Furthermore, a second exclusive interview features an in-depth discussion between Microsoft MVPs and Rencore product owners Waldek Mastykarz, Tobias Zimmergren and Erwin van Hunen regarding the state of SharePoint customizations.
