Microsoft® SharePoint® Online is a collection of Web-based tools and technologies that help you store, share, and manage digital information within your company. Built on the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server  platform, this hosted service is ideal for storing project and company documents in a central location and sharing them with others. By using SharePoint lists, libraries, and Web Parts, team members can work more efficiently and productively.

Microsoft SharePoint Online Standard is a Microsoft Online Services offering designed for rapid service adoption by any organization. It includes a standardized Web-based administrative console that enables you to easily manage and set up services for users.

Many companies today face significant information management and sharing challenges. For example, workers today need to be able to perform these tasks:

  • Share a common workspace with team members, to store documents and collaborate on projects.
  • Publish, store, and view data—often from disparate sources.
  • Quickly find information that is relevant to them, their job function, and their business area.
  • Manage the flow of documents and tasks through a workflow system.
  • Increase data security by controlling access, inside the corporate network as well as remotely.

Microsoft SharePoint Online helps organizations meet these challenges by providing a flexible Web-based solution with tools and services to help employees manage information and collaborate with others.

In addition, Microsoft SharePoint Online reduces the burden of routine IT management. You have access to the latest technologies without having to worry about updates or upgrades.

For many organizations, Microsoft SharePoint hosted online services from Microsoft provide a perfect upgrade path from SharePoint Server 2003 and SharePoint Server 2007.

Switched-Online provides packaged services to assist organizations moving to Microsoft SharePoint Online, and for customers specifically upgrading from SharePoint Server 2003.
