With the number of SharePoint Maturity assessments having just reached 300 (by which I mean 300 valid, vetted records from in-person assessments and data from the free online app), I wanted to celebrate by sharing some data about who's taking the assessments.
First, let's look at responses by number of years of use, from one year and under up to ten years:
You can see that responses really start to drop off for 7 years of use and greater. While it's understandable that the product is seeing greater adoption with each version, hence a larger sample size from the more recent years, I would love to have more responses from 7-10 year SharePoint implementations. If you or someone you know falls in this category, please consider taking the no-strings-attached online assessment or contacting me to go through it in person; it will make the data better for everyone!
Next, let's look at responses by industry type:
Now we can slice by the number of IT Support Staff supporting the SharePoint implementation:
And finally by annual budget range:
SharePoint community - what do you think about these numbers? Any surprises? Any additional data you'd like to see? Drop me a comment or catch up with me in person - over the next couple of months I'll be taking the SharePoint Maturity Model to:
October 18 - Washington DC - SharePoint Symposium
November 11-14 - Las Vegas - MS SharePoint Conference - I'm not presenting a session but will be attending sessions and hanging with my team at booth #666. Please drop by!
