What is SharePoint?

Microsoft SharePoint is a software platform and a family of software products developed by Microsoft for file sharing, collaboration, and process management. Departments can create an intranet portal to share information among its members. Researchers may find it very beneficial to create a team collaboration site and share data with colleagues at other educational institutions. Employees may create a project site to share business information with people outside the organization and leverage this insight to make better decisions.
In addition to Microsoft's suite of SharePoint products, the SharePoint platform can also be used for application development and implementation of other third party tools. MS SharePoint is thus an enterprise tool, designed to provide an environment which helps integrate processes and applications.

What are the capabilities of SharePoint?

Some of the capabilities of the platform include:
Collaboration. SharePoint helps teams work together effectively, collaborate, publish documents, maintain task lists and calendars, implement simple workflows, and share information through the use of wikis & blogs.
Portals. SharePoint helps create personal portals that provide each user with social networking capabilities.
Enterprise Content Management. Use SharePoint to create, manage and store documents, records, and web content.
Business Process and Forms. SharePoint helps create workflow and electronic forms to automate and streamline your business processes.
Business Intelligence. Use SharePoint to easily access critical business information, analyze data, and publish reports to make informed decisions.

What are the benefits of SharePoint?

MS SharePoint provides the opportunity to group data and share data in a way that no other tool presently offers. Some of the highlights are listed below:
SharePoint integrates with other existing desktop tools such as Microsoft Outlook, Word, and Excel, increasing the productivity of the existing tools.
The end-user interface is easy-to-use, with processes that users can identify and use within their areas of business.
SharePoint promotes asynchronous business processes, offering a excellent means to conduct business outside of scheduled business meetings.
SharePoint manages version and change history, allowing users to open documents for sharing, while maintaining control of the final document product.
SharePoint offers decentralized site management, allowing groups and departments manage site content without having to overly rely to technical support resources.
SharePoint provides a standardized development platform, on which IT staff can build and deliver solutions to meet specific enterprise needs.
