It’s the year of SharePoint. What do you know about this Microsoft program powering corporate intranets?
Forget the year of Facebook and Twitter. For corporate communicators, 2008 is actually the year of Microsoft’s SharePoint 2007.
A recent Forrester survey showed 75 percent of companies either use SharePoint 2007 or plan to debut it in the next six to 12 months. One published report said this software powering intranets is among Microsoft’s best-selling products—ever.
Don’t know anything about SharePoint? It is, as one MyRagan member said, “a Microsoft platform that allows the easy publication of news and content across an entire organization.”
There are two forms of SharePoint 2007: the free one that comes with Microsoft 2007, Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) and the enterprise version Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS).
