What Exactly is Microsoft SharePoint Anyway? Microsoft SharePoint makes it easier for people to work together. Using SharePoint 2010, you can set up Web sites to share information with others, manage documents from start to finish, and publish reports to help everyone make better decisions. The main SharePoint site is a place where commonly accessed files such as HR documents, policies, procedures and other organization wide resources can be easily accessed by everyone.
