Overview of Microsoft SharePoint
Microsoft SharePoint is a full-featured, server-based platform that uses web technology to improve collaboration providing comprehensive content management, enterprise search, business process sharing, and access to information across boundaries for better business insight.
SharePoint supports all intranet, extranet, and web applications within an enterprise via a unified, integrated platform, eliminating the need for multiple, fragmented systems to manage different types of information. Additionally, this collaboration and content management solution provides IT professionals and developers with the platform and tools they need for server administration, application extensibility, and interoperability.
Progent's Microsoft-certified engineers can provide cost-effective remote consulting services to help you design, install, and maintain a productive SharePoint deployment that will promote collaboration and smart decision-making via mechanisms and capabilities such as web portals, enterprise search, workflow visualizations, advanced management reporting and analytics, content co-authoring, and document control. Progent can help you set up Microsoft SQL Server as the database engine powering SharePoint and securely integrate SharePoint with a variety of Microsoft and non-Microsoft data sources both inside and outside your corporate firewall. Progent can also provide customized webinar training to individuals or groups who are members of your SharePoint community. Progent can help you support an older release of SharePoint, migrate to a current version, or create a new SharePoint environment that consolidates diverse data sources and management tools into a single, cohesive, and productive collaboration solution.
