SharePoint Portal Server

Microsofts SharePoint Portal Server combines search engine, document management and collaboration functions in an easily configured portal. As this product matures, we expect to see new information stores added, greatly increasing SharePoints value.

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // The initial installation of SharePoint is fairly easy. IT managers should expect to spend a fair amount of time educating employees on how to customize their digital dahsboards to get better access to inforamtion.

LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // In the long run, SharePoint and other knowledge management packages should help information flow within a corporation as well as make sure that this information doesnt leave the organization when employees do.

Easy to set up; simple customization.
