Business Collaboration with SharePoint 2010
SharePoint Server 2010 ConsultingSharePoint 2010, Microsoft's comprehensive platform for business collaboration, is designed to facilitate the creation and maintenance of web sites for a variety of group activities such as sharing information, co-authoring and managing documents, distributing reports, and providing advanced business analytics by integrating multiple local and remote databases and visualization resources. SharePoint 2010's focus on teamwork through information sharing can have a profound and positive impact on your business culture and your bottom line.

SharePoint 2010 is distributed in three primary versions. SharePoint Foundation 2010, formerly called Windows SharePoint Services, is a minimalist version available as a free download and offers the basic functionality of SharePoint 2010 for use within the corporate firewall. SharePoint Server 2010 Standard and Enterprise editions are licensed products designed exclusively with a 64-bit architecture and offering a vast selection of tools and features for building and managing secure, collaborative web sites. A special Developer's version is also available. All versions of SharePoint 2010 incorporate significant enhancements over previous releases of SharePoint.

Progent's Microsoft-certified consultants can provide cost-effective online consulting and development expertise to help you design, implement, manage, and troubleshoot SharePoint 2010 deployments that can include web sites able to function as portals, intranets, extranets, document and media management solutions, blogs, wikis, data warehouses, business analytics, enterprise-wide search engines, workflows, and other tools to promote and improve collaboration. Progent can help you integrate SharePoint 2010 with Microsoft SQL Server and with third-party databases as well as with Microsoft's familiar desktop applications including Excel, Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, Visio, and Project. Progent can help you migrate from earlier versions of SharePoint or adapt a multi-vendor mix of web technologies into a consolidated and more manageable SharePoint 2010 environment.

Progent can also help you create high-performance and fault-tolerant server farms to host SharePoint Server 2010, enhance your network infrastructure and security, assist you with server virtualization and clustering to lower equipment costs and improve availability, show you how to configure efficient remote and mobile access to SharePoint 2010 web sites and tools, develop custom business applications, and deliver affordable online webinar training to your IT staff and your SharePoint 2010 user base.

New Features of SharePoint 2010
SharePoint Server 2010 SupportSharePoint 2010 includes a wealth of new and enhanced features that make this release a significantly more powerful platform for business collaboration than previous versions of SharePoint. These enhancements cover all six capability areas which Microsoft uses to categorize the functionality of SharePoint 2010: Sites, Communities, Search, Content, Insights, and Composites.

The Sites capability area refers to SharePoint 2010's unified infrastructure that supports the ability to share, manage, and publish documents, projects, and information within groups that can include colleagues, partners, vendors, and customers. Communities covers the software tools that allow constituents to collaborate plus management resources available to manage these tools. The Search capability area includes intranet search, people search, and the tools to design and deploy specialized search-based applications. By Content Microsoft means Enterprise Content Management (ECM) tools that allow you to define document types, enforce compliance standards, set retention policies, and automatically sort content. The Insights capability area refers to SharePoint 2010's ability to generate feature-rich management reports that allow actionable information to surface in the form of scorecards, dashboards, and charts built from data extracted from a wide selection of sources. The Composites capability area refers to the ability for managers and end-users to create powerful custom sites and pages without having to write code.

The innovations and enhancements SharePoint 2010 brings to these six capability areas are extensive. Many of these new features require the Standard or Enterprise editions of SharePoint as well as the latest releases of Microsoft Office products.
