At first, trying to compare these two products seems a bit like comparing apples to oranges. In a sense we are, because Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server (MOSS) is designed to be a portal, a collaboration tool, an application framework, and other things as well. In contrast, HighGear is designed to be one thing, an enterprise grade task management and workflow tool. The question of contrast arises, when one considers the task management and workflow capabilities of MOSS against those of HighGear. Here we will compare the products from a task management perspective in terms of ease of use, implementation time and complexity for developers as well as licensing costs.
