Microsoft introduced SharePoint 2010, a remarkable follow-up to the highly successful SharePoint 2007 product. It is hard to believe that it was only three years ago that SharePoint 2007 debuted as enterprise-level application solution for organizations deploying various
combinations of internet, intranet, and extranet sites. It was so successful that Gartner placed
SharePoint 2007 in its 2008 leader’s quadrant for Horizontal Portal Products, Enterprise Content
Management, and Information Access Technology. By heavily leveraging Microsoft’s Office family products, the SharePoint environment allows teams to work together and collaborate even when separated across the country or the globe.
SharePoint 2010 continues in that fine tradition by enhancing its collaboration features. Throughout the latest release of this product, you will find many improvements over 2007; some little items, others fairly major. Together these improvements make SharePoint 2010 your platform of choice for deploying any web-based information or applications web site for your company or customers. There are many opportunities to exploit SharePoint’s features. For some, you need a fair amount of programming expertise. However, for power users of Microsoft Office, you can easily manipulate many of the features directly through the user interface with little to no coding experience.
