I finally read an official note from the BPOS team about a bunch of features I was looking for in BPOS, especially for SharePoint. Mainly:
- Federated Identity!
- SharePoint 2010 Online
- Extranet access for SharePoint online
There are no date mentioned, but BPOS usually deploys new version quarterly.
As I mentioned in a past blog, the federated identity (or single sign-on) was the major show stopper for my company, so with this out of the way, the offering becomes much more interesting.
