What is SharePoint?

SharePoint is a scalable document repository that blends traditional content management, social computing, and search to deliver an enterprise content management platform.  It is quickly becoming the tool of choice for those who want to make information available to authenticated users.  Some other capabilities include:

  • Search
  • Portal
  • Workflow
  • Business Intelligence
  • Enterprise Content Management
  • Extranet
  • Intranet
    • The typical intranet is a document repository where users simply uploadand download content. SharePoint offers much more.
  • Social Networking
  • ...and so on
