FileMaker and SharePoint

Howdy all,

 

Old issue, new version: I have now run into several clients whose

Central IT have taken on SharePoint as The Answer to Everything and

are saying "no FileMaker anymore, instead we'll implement it in

SharePoint".

 

Does anyone here have experience using FileMaker in a SharePoint

environment, or facing similar pushback from IT? Can you say anything

about different ways FileMaker can play in a SharePoint world, and

ways it can't? Does anyone know of a (I don't know the right word)

SharePoint "widget" that can talk to Filemaker as a back end?

Anything else -- experience at the "making the case" level or down to

the nuts and bolts of using single-sign-on or whatever -- you could

add?

 

All input will be greatly appreciated. I'll be at DevCon and hope to

follow this up there as well with whoever has anything to say.

 

Thanks!

--Kevin
