Microsoft Office SharePoint Server
Users can collaborate on a document or set of documents. They can collaborate on tasks and entire
projects. Entire sites and applications can be hubs for collaboration, as is the case with a blog or wiki.
For example, you can set up a fully featured wiki by simply selecting that template when creating a
new site. Using the My Site feature, you can also create personal sites to share data and documents.
Audience-targeting features enable you to personalize content and target it to specific sets of users.
The document and content stored in Office SharePoint Server can be indexed and subsequently searched.
Searching is available from within any site. It can also be incorporated into custom pages and applications.
In addition to searching within the content stored in the server, you can connect to external data stored in
line-of-business applications and databases. The data is indexed, and you search and view it directly from
within Office SharePoint Server. For example, you can search for people, colleagues, and experts in a
specific field. The search indexer can also connect to third-party content repositories.
Yet another component of the server is Forms Services, which enables server-side forms authoring and
management. Forms Services is the server-side extension of Microsoft Office’s InfoPath tool. You can
author electronic forms in InfoPath client and publish these forms to the server. The forms can then be
filled out through either the InfoPath client or, using Forms Services, in the browser.
