An Introduction to SharePoint 2010

SharePoint 2010 provides a single infrastructure for all your business Web sites. Share documents with colleagues, manage projects with partners, and publish information to customers. SharePoint 2010 offers tools and components for creating do-it-yourself business solutions. Build no-code solutions to rapidly respond to business needs.​ SharePoint 2010 gives everyone access to the information in databases, reports, and business applications. Help people locate the information they need to make good decisions. SharePoint 2010 delivers great collaboration tools—and a single platform to manage them. Make it easy for people to share ideas and work together the way they want. SharePoint 2010 Content makes content management easy. Set up compliance measures ”behind the scenes”—with features like document types, retention polices, and automatic content sorting—and then let people work naturally in Microsoft Office. SharePoint 2010 Search cuts through the clutter. A unique combination of relevance, refinement, and social cues helps people find the information and contacts they need to get their jobs done.

SharePoint sits on top of the many technologies. It borrows a lot from web development. However, it also integrates tightly into the Microsoft Office products, giving them the ability to accomplish goals like the following:
• Create shared document libraries that users can access from anywhere they can get an Internet connection or to work on those documents offline and then synchronize their changes with the document library the next time they connect to their corporate intranet.
• Present electronic forms that people interactively complete, rather than forcing them to download and print the form, write on it, send it back, and then have someone enter the data into a computer program interface.
• Store multiple versions of documents so a revision history can be retained or to archive a copy of a document into your company’s permanent records archival center.
• Display business information in Excel-style pages, dashboards and Key
Performance Indicator (KPI) lists that change interactively to help managers make better decisions.
• Use agile application development with Microsoft Access to meet the needs of various departments and groups within your corporate environment and deploy that application to run on the user’s browser so they can truly access it anywhere. By deploying through Access Services on SharePoint, these applications are secure, backed up, and easily maintained, since they only have a single source for the data, the forms, and the reports.
