  • Connect and Empower PeopleMaking people more productive is a direct result of enabling them to access resources and knowledge regardless of where they are and what device they use, through a user experience optimized for usability and adoption.User InterfaceTo allow people to interact with SharePoint’s rich set of integrated capabilities in an easy and intuitive way, the Office Ribbon UI has been implemented in SharePoint, providing users with a familiar and contextual experience that drives their productivity even further. This user experience is enhanced by additional technologies that boost usability and by the ability of all users to easily edit and publish SharePoint sites.Office Integration Microsoft Office is, by far, the most commonly used business productivity software in the world. Office has always been about automating tasks and providing people with choices in how they get things done. Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 provide users with a seamless integration of capabilities that span across Client and Server, often without users even realizing that both are involved.​Anywhere Access Mobile work isn’t just for the sales force anymore. Today, most businesses support telecommuting, and they expect employees to be “always on, always connected,” even when they are away from the office. SharePoint 2010 offers a diverse set of capabilities that extends people’s access to resources and allows them to be productive regardless of the tools or devices they have available.Cut costs with a Unified InfrastructureDriving cost efficiencies and accomplishing more with the same resources is possible through the consolidation of all the key business collaboration solutions into SharePoint 2010 and using this common platform to deploy solutions for your intranet, extranet, or for your Internet web presence. Platform ConsolidationThe rich set of integrated capabilities for business collaboration provided by SharePoint 2010, in addition to its enterprise-scale manageability, will enable more customers to retire niche solutions and focus new solutions on SharePoint. This will accelerate their ability to drive efficiencies, allowing IT departments to achieve more impact with the same resources.Deployment ChoiceNowadays, IT is required to support scale agility, allowing its business collaboration platform to be scaled up and out quickly, based on changing business needs. SharePoint 2010 provides IT with the flexibility of choosing whether to deploy on-premises or in the cloud, thus enhancing its ability to support any given scenario while optimizing resources and remaining relevant and efficient.IT ProductivityWith business collaboration and productivity becoming instrumental to success, IT departments are required to do more with no additional resources. With SharePoint 2010, robust management tools enable IT to multiply its impact and achieve a higher degree of effectiveness with the same resources.Rapidly Respond to Business NeedsWhen time-to-market is key, SharePoint 2010 enables people to customize the out-of-box platform and deploy solutions that enable them to address specific business requirements quickly and in a secure manner. Developer Productivity In alignment with SharePoint’s approach of doing more with no additional resources, investments like integration with Visual Studio 2010 will enable customers to rely on existing programming expertise to enrich the SharePoint platform and increase the quality and ROI on their investments.Data Connectivity A major advancement in SharePoint is allowing users, regardless of their technical expertise, to interact with line-of-business data, surface it in their SharePoint sites, analyze it, and make updates to be reflected in the external data source itself, such as ERP and CRM systems.Composite SolutionsEnabling users to address specific business and collaboration needs, while relieving IT from the need to be involved all changes to the platform, is made possible through a rich set of tools and features that allow users to create no-code solutions and to deploy those solutions in an easy and secure manner.

  • Hardware and System SoftwarePlan for upgrading 32-bit hardware that is currently running SharePoint 2007 to 64-bit hardware. SharePoint 2010 will only be available in a 64-bit version. Plan for upgrading 32-bit hardware that is currently running SQL Server for SharePoint 2007 storage. SharePoint 2010 will require 64-bit SQL Server 2008 or 64-bit SQL Server 2005. Plan for upgrading your Windows Server Operating System to Windows Server 2008 64-bit or above. SharePoint 2010 will require Windows Server 2008 64-bit or above. Deploy Service Pack 2 for Windows SharePoint Service 3.0 and Service Pack 2 for SharePoint Server 2007. Service Pack 2 is a requirement for upgrading SharePoint Server 2007 to SharePoint 2010. Consider your desktop browser strategy if you have a large population of Internet Explorer 6 users. Internet Explorer 6 will not be a supported browser for SharePoint 2010. SharePoint 2010 will support a broader range of standards based browsers such as Internet Explorer 7, Internet Explorer 8 and FireFox 3.x. Development PlatformPlan for upgrading SharePoint development environments to 64 bit. The Visual Studio 2008 extensions for Windows SharePoint Services (VSeWSS), version 1.3 support 64 bit development, debugging and deployment to SharePoint Server 2007 today.Consider packaging all custom code that you deploy to SharePoint as SharePoint Solutions in WSP files. SharePoint 2010 has new technology that makes this solution deployment format more valuable. You can read about the SharePoint Solution format.Microsoft recommends Visual Studio 2008 for SharePoint Server 2007 development and Visual Studio 2010 for SharePoint 2010 development. There will be two types of upgrade provided for projects. Visual Studio 2008 SharePoint Workflow projects will be upgraded to Visual Studio 2010 and continue to work in SharePoint Server 2007. Visual Studio 2008 extensions for Windows SharePoint Services (VSeWSS) projects will be upgraded to Visual Studio 2010 and in the process will be migrated to SharePoint 2010 projects.Many of your SharePoint 2007 applications will work in SharePoint 2010. In specific cases where Microsoft deprecates an API, it will be providing detailed written guidance for developers on how to upgrade custom code, and any deprecated API’s will issue warnings on compile with recommendations for changes.
  • Key MessageThere are two enterprise scenarios supported in a SharePoint 2010 upgrade.
