Tomoye Communities for SharePoint takes document management to the next level by breaking down content silos by publishing content into cross-enterprise communities.  Organizations can also leverage SharePoint content beyond the walls of the enterprises to engage partners, customers and other stakeholders.  In these communities, users participate using a wide range of powerful features such as video collaboration, expertise classification and community metrics.

Tomoye Communities for SharePoint includes the following features:

  • Community taxonomy: Thematic based navigation enables organizations to successfully aggregate all of the different people, knowledge and conversations within an enterprise.
  • Powerful questions and answers: Tomoye questions and answers generate ROI and stickiness in communities.  In Tomoye Communities, questions and answers are available by mobile, email and within the community itself.
  • Expertise classification: In social networking applications, more often then not, people do not fill in their personal profile or share content on their profile pages. Tomoye communities use a variety of techniques aside from profiles to reveal expertise and classifying it with a fine granularity.
  • Video collaboration: Tomoye helps create communities around all types of content from documents to wikis to videos to Weblogs. Users can select and work with the content types they feel the most comfortable with.  Only Tomoye brings video collaboration to SharePoint deployments.
  • Community metrics engine: Take the guess work out of managing communities with fine grain metrics that enable you to plan, grow and evaluate initiatives.

Where is the SharePoint Integration?

Tomoye Communities delivers some great videos in their demonstration site. According to the website material, Tomoye Communities shares the ability to use Windows Authentication and the .Net Platform with SharePoint. A Powerpack is also available with webpart that expose information from the Tomoye community.

Given SharePoint is a collaboration platform, does limited integration with a closed, redundant system like this make sense? I don't see a great integration story from the marketing materials.
