SharePoint coins its name from words share and point, which means a place where
something is being shared. That something is often company information in form of
documents, reports, calendars, announcements, schedules, and other publishable materials.
SharePoint is also a place where employees can come together - in a virtual way
- and work together on a project or document, submit a vacation request to human
resources, request a computer help from the IT department, or discuss the cool new
copy centre that has just opened this week.
SharePoint 2007/ 2010 is a Microsoft technology that allows a company to host intranet
based WebPages. It also enables the sharing of MS Office documents between users
on the intranet. The Share point resides on a server running the Share point software.
Microsoft Office Share Point Server 2007/ 2010 is a server program that is part
of the 2007/ 2010 Microsoft Office system. SharePoint often used to facilitate collaboration,
provide content management features, implement business processes, and supply access
to essential information.
SharePoint's multi-purpose platform allows for managing and provisioning of intranet
portals, extranets and websites, document management and file management, collaboration
spaces, social networking tools, enterprise search, business intelligence tooling,
process/information integration, and third-party developed solutions. SharePoint
can also be used as a web application development platform.
SharePoint provides various methods for customization and configuration of web areas,
all of which have granular governance configurations. Beyond SharePoint basic page-editing,
file-storing and custom design ('branding') capabilities, one of the more prevalent
forms of configuration is the ability to install third-party customizations called
'web parts' (i.e. widgets/gadgets).
" SharePoint 2010 makes it easier for people to work together." Using SharePoint
2010, your people can set up Web sites share information with others, manage documents
from start to finish, and publish reports to help everyone make better decisions.
SharePoint 2010 helps organizations and users improve efficiencies and effectiveness
by enabling them to better manage their information sharing. The Sites capability
of SharePoint 2010 serves as a “one-stop shop” for all of an organization’s
business Web sites. SharePoint 2010 Sites helps organizations and users to:
Easily Share & Publish Information:Building a SharePoint site is simple. Several out-of-the-box features provide instant

directly in SharePoint sites. End users can take their SharePoint data offline with
SharePoint Workspace and synchronize changes just by reconnecting to parent networks.
SharePoint connects people to business-critical information, expertise, and one
another through web sites. We refer to this capability as SharePoint Sites. SharePoint
Sites are the gateway to valuable content and can take the form of an intranet site,
extranet site, or even an Internet site. SharePoint sites can help organizations
improve business agility by giving workers the ability to collaborate and make quicker,
more informed decisions. SharePoint sites allow users to share and discover information and
quickly and easily connect with employees across disparate teams, departments, and
organizations, as well as external partners and customers.

Building Communities for Maximum Business Value
Enterprise Content Management (ECM) has become a key business priority for most
organizations. The amount of business information created and shared is increasing
in size and speed every day, government compliance requirements are becoming more
stringent, and key business tasks require accurate and fast access to records, documents,
and other information.
SharePoint Server 2010 enables companies to democratize content management and improve
organizations by providing content management to all employees and compliance across
all documents. SharePoint leads to better, faster, and more secure processes that can
be managed through a familiar environment, integrated into business collaboration
infrastructure, and built on a trusted and extensible platform.
With ECM in SharePoint Server, you can:
Drive participation: Avoid chaos and end-user resistance.
Ensure Compliance: With ECM in SharePoint Server avoid risk by controlling unmanaged content, including Social content.
Save Costs: With ECM in SharePoint Server avoid high costs of point solutions, especially where not needed.
Enterprise Content Management:
An Enterprise Content Management (ECM) system helps businesses manage all data,
Structured data captured in LOB systems, such as CRM, ERP, or Sales databases, and
Unstructured data including all documents, spreadsheets, and other files.
ECM in SharePoint is both broad and deep. ECM in SharePoint must provide core management for the full lifecycle
of information from inception to archive (or deletion), while providing deeper control
in one or a few specific areas. A full ECM solution must provide a platform for
some or all of the following, based on organizational needs:
- Document Management
Web Content Management
Rich Media Management
Archiving and Library Services
Human Centric Workflow
Business Process Management
Transactional Content Management
Scanning (Image and Capture)
Document Output Management
Customer Communications Management
Microsoft® SharePoint® Server 2010 delivers a platform approach that can
manage unstructured data and address many, if not all, of the deployment blockers
- Tools that enable and encourage user interaction. If end users resist, then the
ECM solution will fail. SharePoint Server 2010 provides automated and convenient
document tagging and metadata management.
Architecture and tools that provide security and help manage compliance and policies.
All unmanaged content is a potential risk, and new types of unmanaged content are
appearing every day (Facebook status updates, blogs, wikis, documents stored in
the “cloud” - i.e., hosted Internet services such as SkyDrive-, etc.).
Guidance and technology that helps avoid high costs of ECM point solutions, especially
where not needed – and integrate ECM information silos. Individual point solutions
provide deep management and security in one or two areas, but can be expensive to
integrate and maintain. In addition, they are typically only used by a subset of
User-centric content management.
Enterprise Content Management (ECM) in SharePoint Server provides users with both
a platform and individual solutions for developing, using, and managing documents,
with familiar Office Client applications deeply integrated for document viewing
and editing. ECM systems rely on one key dependency more than technology, feature
set, or amount of information managed: user adoption. People who are expected to
integrate an ECM system into their workflow and processes must see ECM as a useful
and valuable tool that integrates into their daily work. Overall SharePoint Server
Easy to use, integrated tools and features for managing, finding, and sharing documents
to enhance productivity.
Easy to add and identify document metadata to track, find, and share documents.
Where possible, automated metadata capture – and where use input is needed,
non-invasive inputs built into standard save and upload functions.
ECM in SharePoint Server includes a full collaboration platform users can create
and manage without involving IT, using the Office Client applications.
Greater Value From Information:
SharePoint Server can enhance the effectiveness of customer service and sales teams
by aggregating critical information from across the enterprise and by providing
rapid, easy access to both structured and unstructured information. Several new
features, includes: Greater sharing and collaboration options, related content and
properties (including metadata) pane, metadata capture from Office, and improved
Users add value by participating:
Users provide greater value by providing additional document or record information,
making content easier to find, use, and manage in the future. Additionally, with
social and collaboration functions within SharePoint Server, users who find, read,
or review the document or record can provide rating, comment, and categorization.
Balance between flexibility & control:
SharePoint Server provides:
Reduces Risk, and
Manages access to information to the people who need it.
SharePoint Server provides “Compliance Everywhere,” which means all
the expected tools – retention, legal holds, etc. -- are all available through
SharePoint Server and Office, so compliance managers can identify and set policies
on Content Type and location for documents, groups of documents and list items.
Users have Access to the Information They Need
Save costs and consolidate systems
Enterprise Ready Platform:
Rich Partner Ecosystem: There are thousands of Solution Integrators (SIs) and hundreds of Independent Software
Vendors (ISVs) that are part of the SharePoint Server partner network – that
provide interfaces for their own specialized solutions, or provide interfaces for
larger ECM solutions providers.
