What is SharePoint? A private web site for storing and collaborating on documents with your team.Your company’s external facing website. The platform on which you build your company’s intranet and extranet, (access for vendors, customers, partners, etc.). Profile pages for each of your employees that can be likened to Facebook. The landing page (dashboard) when linking to a whole lot of other line of business systems, eg: SAP and client databases, to report on Business Intelligence. An electronic forms solution. A document, record and web content management system including workflow. A search engine for people, documents and information.
