SharePoint has not yet reached its full potential. This is partly due to the time it takes to refine and perfect an application, but it is also due to the limitations and boundaries set for it by the technologies upon which it is dependent. SharePoint is bound by.NET, Windows, Active Directory, networks, latency, bandwidth, SQL Server, and the Internet, in no particular order. But the primary limiter of the potential of SharePoint by far is the decision makers who have responsibility for its planning, deployment, and maintenance. There are many perspectives you can take on why something is what it is; there are always many interrelated causes. While we can’t control the hardware, software, networking, and developmental limitations of the SharePoint platform, the actions of those who run it can make the greatest difference to its success or failure.
