What is Sharepoint?
Sharepoint is an enterprise platform that is designed, as the name suggests, as a virtual sharing portal in one specific place. Sharepoint can be set up for use in the extranet, intranet or over the Internet. Sharepoint is a family of programs developed by Microsoft, much like its cousin MS Office. It is designed to handle portal building, collaboration sites as well as content management sites. Programs under Microsoft Sharpoint include Sharepoint Workspace, Sharepoint Search Server, Sharepoint Designer, Sharepoint Server, and Sharepoint Foundation.

MS Sharepoint is used by businesses in a lot of ways. Sharepoint can be used as a document management tool, i.e. it can be used as a central ‘file cabinet’ for forms, company policies, manuals, contracts, etc. It can also be used for record keeping, such as employee records, customer records, etc. Electronic forms can also be generated using MS Sharepoint. Moreover, important business information dissemination such as news and announcements, or information collection such as employee feedback and surveys can be done through MS Sharepoint.

Sharepoint can efficiently manage a business’s day to day operations through its time management, meeting management, and projects management capabilities. Real time feedback and useful information can also be gathered in one area through discussion boards.
