Key MessageSharePoint 2010 delivers tools and services that mean users can more readily develop the solutions that exactly fit your business.

With Access Services you will be able to eliminate database versioning problems and simplify the deployment of Access forms and reports to other users, while simplifying management of these databases. Business Connectivity Services With Business Connectivity Services, or BCS, you can extend the reach of your enterprise data to everybody in the organization. Enable users to read and write back to these external data sources as easily as with SharePoint lists, and allow them to interact with this data even when offline using Outlook, Word or SharePoint Workspace. Creating external content types that connect to these external data sources can be accomplished very easily and without code directly using SharePoint Designer 2010. Presenter GuidanceWe are getting very used to the word “composites” in SharePoint presentations. Make sure that your audience understand what it means.
We can do that today. For example, the Office desktop application like Word allow people to individual collaborate. Track changes is a great example.
One might then submit the document back to the original author and your user experience might look like this. In this case I see some email with some attachments. But I also have individual calendar. I also have individual contacts. All of this is done without SharePoint
One area that SharePoint helps facilitate Individual collaboration is Profiles whereby each individual gets a site, referred to as a My Site. This is a improvement upon the personal file folder IT provisions on a file share.
