Below are some photos from the recently held SharePoint 2010 & K2 Breakfast. All in all it was a great event and well timed with the RTM versions of both SharePoint 2010 and the Office suite being made available the evening before for MSDN/TechNet subscribers (We were able to demo on SharePoint Server 2010!).
Thanks once again to all of those who attended as well as the great support from K2 and Microsoft for the event.
Together Microsoft SharePoint, K2 and emediaIT can help you Improve, Grow and Evolve. Join us for breakfast to learn how! Speakers will be from emediaIT and K2. Date: 23rd April 2010 Venue: Cherry Place Café & Conference Centre Address: 161 Heugh Rd Walmer Port Elizabeth
Microsoft SharePointis an integrated suite of server capabilities that can help improve organizational effectiveness by providing comprehensive content management and enterprise search, accelerating shared business processes, and facilitating information-sharing across boundaries for better business insight. SharePoint 2010 facilitates business collaboration in the broadest sense and helps colleagues, partners, and customers to work together in new and effective ways.
K2 (Blackpoint, Blackpearl and Connect)is a complete software platform for automating business processes, building SharePoint workflow solutions and integrating with third party systems including direct support for integrating Microsoft solutions into SAP.
As per this article K2 version 4.5 is now available for clients to download.
"All three K2 software products — K2 blackpearl, K2 blackpoint and K2 connect — are now enhanced with significant new features and capabilities that focus on simplicity, performance and stability.
Both K2 blackpearl 4.5 and K2 blackpoint 4.5 feature a new Web-based K2 Designer for SharePoint and Office-like K2 Studio designer for faster and more intuitive application design. K2 blackpearl’s other application designer, K2 Designer for Visual Studio now supports Visual Studio 2008 SP1.
Other new or updated platform highlights:
K2 Inline Functions allow users to build complex logic and calculations with simple drag-and-drop tools.
K2 View Flow is improved to give users a graphical, real-time view into the status of any step in the process. For every action taken along the path of the workflow, audit information is available so users know what decisions were made and who made them.
The K2 ADO.NET Data Provider, K2 SmartObjects and runtime components have been enhanced, so complexity is reduced and developers can build more sophisticated .NET applications that make use of data across systems and organizations.
K2 Process Portals are SharePoint sites that provide a one-stop location for access to information and management of processes. Reports included on the site provide deep visibility into process performance and can help uncover bottlenecks and inefficiencies.
The K2 4.5 updates also include support for Silverlight 4."
