It’s Microsoft’s Web 2.0

Ted sums it up well:

“Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2007 (MOSS) represents a large set of components and services built on top of WSS to provide functionality in areas such as portal and search, Web content management, line-of-business system integration, business intelligence, business process management and records management.”

And some others:

It’s three things: a portal, light-weight content management and collaboration with a strong connection to Office.

“Sharepoint is a platform to build knowledge worker applications”

“An out-of-the-box intranet portal solution. It provides any company with the tools to quickly build an intranet based on a collaboration framework with workflow, news & announcements, tasks, issues, calendaring, discussion boards and more…

It’s basically a toolbox with a ton of stuff inside. The trick is understanding how to mold the tools to meet the business objective of your company.

Most of the heavy lifting is done within the SharePoint Designer (was FrontPage) – including a powerful workflow design tool. For list and document management capabilities, it’s got versioning, check-in/check-out, multi-stage recycle bin, integration with AD (for profile attributes and login), integrated employee directory, tight Excel/Access integration with datasheet views and the ability to create a bi-directional link between a spreadsheet/db and SharePoint. “
