Microsoft SharePoint is an enterprise-class collaboration and content management platform that makes it easier for people to work together.
Why Use SharePoint?
The capabilities of SharePoint work together to help your company quickly respond to changing business needs. Using SharePoint, your people can share ideas and expertise, create custom solutions for specific needs, and find the right business information to make better decisions. The benefits to an organization include improved efficiency, better control, and reduced costs while making the management of corporate information easier through simplifying storage, security, version control, process routing, and retention.
SharePoint makes Enterprise Content Management (ECM) easy for everyone. Combining traditional content management, social capabilities, and powerful search, it is as natural to manage as it is to use. With its simple, “behind-the-scenes” administration, you can quickly set up compliance policies, while its friendly interface lets your people work just as they would in Microsoft Office. The result is well-managed data that is easy to retrieve, share, and use.
SharePoint lets everyone access the business information they need to make good decisions. With powerful features like interactive dashboards and scorecards, people can use the information in databases, reports, and business applications to address specific needs. Because SharePoint uses well-known applications and interfaces, people are comfortable from the start, and they know how to get the data they need.
SharePoint Search helps your people find the information they need to get their jobs done. It provides intranet search, people search, and a platform to build search-driven applications.
SharePoint Sites is a “one-stop shop” for all your business Web sites. It provides a full set of tools that your staff can use to create any kind of site, plus a single infrastructure that simplifies site management. From a team site for colleagues, to an extranet site for partners, to an Internet site for customers, people can share and publish information using one familiar system.
SharePoint Communities lets people work together in ways that are most effective for them by providing great collaboration tools that anyone can use to share ideas, find people and expertise, and locate business data. With SharePoint Communities, your staff can be more creative and productive—and you can be confident that they’re working in a secure, well-managed environment.
