Search is the dominant navigation tool used, and empowering information workers to find the right content or people with the right expertise more quickly leads to increased productivity and decreased redundancy.Connect people to enhance teamwork Social networking and people search in SharePoint Server 2010 allows employees to find and leverage the expertise of coworkers, amplifying the impact of each individual in the organization. With My Sites as a personal profile, information workers can manage and increase the scope of their networks to increase productivity and engagement with the company.Rapidly respond to business needs Whether it’s an end user or a professional developer, SharePoint Server 2010 offers the tools and capabilities to design and create business solutions that can be integrated with existing enterprise data, tools, and processes, allowing organizations to respond rapidly to business needs.Share data throughout the organization Now you can empower your employees to share and collaborate around line-of-business (LOB) data in a familiar and easy user experience.
