SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bamboo Solutions Corporation today announced a new model for Community Driven Software and Commercial Product Development for Microsoft SharePoint. Bamboo’s Development Methodology provides users with a transfer of knowledge from Bamboo’s global user community, while providing the dependability, quality, reliability and support of Bamboo’s commercial software development infrastructure. With Bamboo’s model, 40 Web Parts and Solution Accelerators have been brought to market in the last two years. Currently Bamboo is releasing two new products and two to three point solutions each month. Bamboo is in booth 706 as a Gold Sponsor in Seattle at the Washington State Trade and Convention Center.

Bamboo has one of the world’s largest independent commercial software development teams operating globally, and focused completely on SharePoint. Bamboo employs a recursive software approach to roll out products from concept to market in weeks versus months. This agile development methodology also supports rapid and ongoing product enhancements in order to fulfill client requirements in a timely manner. In addition, the approach maximizes customer collaboration while allowing development creativity, continuous learning and application of knowledge to new products. Bamboo leverages its own SharePoint-based solutions to share information with its customers and for all project management.

“With the rapid growth of SharePoint, our customer base has expanded to over 3,000 companies over the last two years,” said Michael Tanner, CEO, Bamboo Solutions Corporation. “We saw the need for a significant shift in our software development approach in order to accelerate the introduction of new commercial software products. Our goal is to provide the best community for knowledge transfer, the most experienced development team and the leading commercial support infrastructure so that our customers can maximize the utility of their SharePoint implementations in record time.”
