issues DB

  Asked By: Roxana    Date: Apr 29    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1435

I'm using Sharepoint2003 to build a central issues repository for
several groups. While most groups enter very few issues, one of the
groups has thousands of new issues each year with dozens of thousands
that we need to migrate in from the past. My question - is Sharepoint
just the wrong tool to use here - based on the size of the data? I've
heard that as you approach a list of 2000+, searching over it begins to
get tedious. I realize there are better tools - actually we were using
Quickbase before, but licensing is too expensive. We need something
that can handle simple issues management, as well as change control

is there a better way to handle this? Is there a better tool?

The list size  practical limitations were fixed in SharePoint (MOSS) 2007.

is there any way you could elaborate on that? ie. are we talking like db sized
capabilities (access/sqlsrvr) or just a lot more than before? Was it the search
algorithms that we limiting it before or the data  structure the data was placed

Livelink from Open text is an awesome choice which does MORE than what
sharepoint can do. But am not sure if this would fit into your budget...
