BBC Says "SharePoint" in top tech story

Microsoft has ramped up its battle with Google in wooing business customers with its next generation cloud-based product.

While the software giant dominates the office space with a 94% market share it has been facing increased competition from Google.

At a San Francisco event, Microsoft unveiled Office 365.

The product brings together Microsoft Office, SharePoint Online, Exchange Online and Lync Online.

BBC News - Microsoft bets to win in the cloud and rival Google

With Office 365 SharePoint has finally hit the mass consciousness. You think it has been a bandwagon the last 3 years, just wait now! In 24 hours I read the word SharePoint in both Mashable and BBC Technology. Normally I would have to Google for references to the term. This means SharePoint has gone for a technology platform to a common culture technology platform. Its not yet Windows or Office, but it is on its way.
