What is SharePoint, really?
As you've heard, SharePoint is now available on campus! If you've been asking about it, you've probably received vague and varied responses (if you received any at all)…so here is a general overview that will help get a SharePoint conversation started.
Simply (or very simply) put: SharePoint is a web based, collaboration oriented, productivity tool.
• Windows SharePoint Services, an integrated Microsoft product suite, provides all the necessary tools for document sharing, management and collaboration.
• Information accessibility and portability is achieved through a web platform.
• Content management in conjunction with defined work processes and routing is supported via a workflow component.
SharePoint virtually provides an environment for keeping everyone on the "same page" so that the right information can be accessed by the right people at the right time. If nothing else, just remember these SharePoint theme words: accessibility, portability and collaboration!
