According to a study by Microsoft and IDC, cloud computing technologies is likely to create 14 million jobs worldwide by 2015. The study also says that the revenue generated by cloud industry will total $1.1 trillion beginning in 2015.
According to an article posted on InformationWeek last month:
“Most new cloud jobs will be created in media and communications, manufacturing, and banking. In the case of the latter industry, many enterprises are expected to deploy private clouds as security concerns limit their interest in the public cloud, according to the study’s authors.
Geographically, emerging markets are expected to see the most growth in cloud-related jobs. Brazil is in line to see growth of 186%, India will see 99% growth, and China is expected to experience 84% growth. Cloud jobs in the U.S. are expected to grow by 66% by 2015.”

In case you didn’t know, according to Microsoft, SharePoint Designer has nothing to do with designing SharePoint? Then why is it called SharePoint Designer? Good question. The simple answer is: for the same reason that you have to click Start to shutdown Microsoft Windows. Just kidding! I really don’t have a clue why Microsoft would name a product then tell us that the name is meaningless and we should ignore it. You would think a name like SharePoint Editor would have made more sense.
One thing is for sure, SharePoint Designer will no longer be called SharePoint Designer in future because the name makes no sense at all. That’s just my prediction. According to Microsoft:
“SharePoint Designer 2010 is designed for users to work on — not to design and publish — SharePoint Foundation 2010 and SharePoint Server 2010 web sites.”
Some people may consider SharePoint Designer 2010 to be a crippled version of FrontPage, even though when it comes to coding SharePoint Designer is a much better product. Others may consider SharePoint Designer 2010 a crippled version of SharePoint Designer 2007, which is perhaps a better way to describe it. Microsoft has removed a lot of features in SharePoint Designer 2010. Here is a partial list of what’s missing or changed.
I often create a new site collection based on Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 Collaboration Portal template for my clients’ intranet site. Just so you know, the Collaboration Portal template is hidden in SharePoint Server 2010. I use a PowerShell script to create the top-level site collection using the site template ID (SPSPORTAL#0) for the Collaboration Portal, as documented in my post Installing Collaboration Portal in SharePoint 2010.
Sometimes you may want to create a site based on your own custom site template that you have previously saved. Of course, if the site is a subsite then you can use the GUI to create the site, unless it’s a hidden template. However, if you want to use a script, and there are several situations where you may want to do that, the following script will come handy to create a new site based on a custom site template. Thanks to SharePoint MVP Alex Pierce for this script.
Get the site template ID using the following method.
Replace “http://www.contoso.com/” with your site URL.
Use the method documented in my post Installing Collaboration Portal in SharePoint 2010 to create a new site based on your custom site ID.
