Every year Windows IT Pro Magazine’s Editors validate products and services worthy of their Editors’ Best and, based on their readers votes, Community Choice awards. For the Community Choice awards the editorial team asks the community to nominate their favorite products and then release a voting survey to let everyone participate in the final voting phase. Fair enough. Certainly, we trust the professional opinion of Windows IT Pro Editors, but here is your chance to share your opinion with the SharePoint Reviews readers as well.
There are 29 award categories, and below are the winners in the SharePoint category. Sometimes editors and readers agree on favorite products, but most of the time they don’t. Regardless of whether the winners were chosen by editors or readers, all these products are worth serious consideration to help you manage and improve your SharePoint deployment.
Do you agree with Windows IT Pro Editors? Would you nominate anyone else?…

Hi – the Best Practices articles and the Best Practices Resource Center for 2007 were some of our most popular content for that release. We’re pleased to announce that we now have a 2010 version of the Best Practices Resource Center. Like in 2007, this was a joint effort between the SharePoint Customer Engineering team and Microsoft Consulting Services team for SharePoint. They drew on real customer experiences to help us bring you a set of guidelines that lay out the best practices for success with SharePoint Server 2010. Following these practices will help you avoid some of the common deployment pitfalls and keep your SharePoint environments available and performing well. Get the details now from the Best Practices Resource Center.
More best practices articles are in the works and will appear in the coming weeks and months on the Resource Center and in the Best Practices section of the Technical Library, so keep checking back for more info.
