SharePoint: Internet, Intranet, Extranet - Bringing Organizations Together


Published on

Microsoft SharePoint® Portal Server enables enterprises to deploy an intelligent portal that seamlessly connects users, teams, and knowledge so that people can take advantage of relevant information across business processes to help them work more efficiently. Two great examples are Washington University in St. Louis’ division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences and Cassidy Turley.

Washington University: The Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis was in need of not only a new web site, but a whole new platform to design and develop a dynamic internet presence. Bu utilizing Sharepoint, the new site has given us an efficient and smooth interface with many types of social networking, straightforward integration with existing database of information to broaden the reach of the division to our diverse audiences, and expanded ease of content management staff as well as constituents.

Cassidy Turley: Cassidy Turley is one of the biggest commercial real estate management organizations in the country, with diversified branches and numerous locations across United States – one of them being their brokerage division. In order to integrate all their business units, they needed a platform to organize and disseminate information across the organization and their existing platform was not serving their needs. By using Sharepoint 2010 they were able to create synergy within their organization across multiple divisions.
