Collaboration using Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007

December 4, 2006

I fequently get asked about the key component characteristics of our Communication and Collaboration tools as people enter into the lifecycle of product analysis and evaluation with a certain job in mind. I have decided to run a number of short posts that will detail the main themes or challenges that are met by Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS) in order to satisfy many of these requests. So here goes # 1; 

With Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, it is all about finding, retrieving, managing and collaborating with information and content. . Microsoft SharePoint Technologies provides organizations with one single, integrated platform to support all intranets (including team and individual sites), extranets and Web applications across your enterprise.Whether content management and search features, business forms and business intelligence, or collaboration and portal functionality – from now on, you can manage and use it all across all of your enterprise’s systems and business units from within the familiar Microsoft Office GUI.

Top Features for collaborations at A Glance:

  • LDAP integration and support for other authentication providers
  • Offline access to all lists and document libraries
  • Knowledge management tools for networking and knowledge sharing
  • My Websites: personalized GUI with an individual website for each user
  • Blogs, Wikis, e-mail integration
  • Project management “lite”
  • Offline documents/lists
  • Outlook Integration
