Of all the products that Microsoft has launched over the years, SharePoint is arguably the single most game-changing and the hardest to define. In a nutshell, SharePoint is a bundled, unified collection of tools and technologies that puts immense power and functionality into the hands of businesses of all sizes. Microsoft defines SharePoint’s abilities as “Collaborate Efficiently”, “Enhance Productivity”, “Improve Access”, “Manage Information” and “Integrate Processes”. We at itgroove define SharePoint as “simply awesome”!
SharePoint gives you the tools and ability to eliminate the closed “silos” of information that exist inside your business. The information that your business relies on can easily and securely be made available to all who need it on any device, at anytime, and anywhere there is an Internet connection available. What’s more, the information can come from many sources within your organization and it can be presented in many ways (or views) to match the needs of your users. All information within SharePoint is searchable so there is no longer any excuse for not being able to find that important document that got “lost” in the server. SharePoint drives collaboration and productivity within your user community as it provides the tools for your users to easily share information and collaborate on ideas and projects.
SharePoint is also the “glue” that Microsoft is using to create conduits and bindings between all of its products. Going forward, everything Microsoft will also be everything SharePoint. That means that you can drive even more return from your Microsoft products (and that includes the Business products like Great Plains) by implementing SharePoint within your business. And the best part of the SharePoint story is that it is “size agnostic” – any company or organization regardless of size can benefit from SharePoint.
