SharePoint supports all the company's intranet, extranet and web applications within a single, integrated, robust and secure platform. The system has six supporting pillars supporting interface structure:
Data and Process collaboration
SharePoint provides a platform for sharing information and collaborating for processes involving people. In order to provide greater infrastructure to teamwork, this feature is integrated with other products.
SharePoint integrates with Microsoft Office Communicator Server and Microsoft Exchange, enabling communication by e-mail, IP telephony, video conferencing and instant messaging. It also interacts with Outlook, synchronizing tasks and calendars, contacts and documents.
For example, you can use the calendar to find out about the activities that are occurring, or use document libraries to store team, area or company documentation. You can also discuss issues by using blogs or capture and retain information in Wikis that are user-managed knowledge databases.
In this way, SharePoint allows your company to perform more tasks, as it facilitates the information sharing.
Microsoft Office SharePoint Server facilitates the creation, maintenance of websites and portals to all company areas. These websites are structured hierarchically and can have collaborative features such as forums, document sharing, document versioning, among others.
This feature enables the integration of different business applications, delivering customized and personalized content for different users and privacy control.
The ability to integrate with systems developed in other tools ensures better functionality. SharePoint interacts with Office software (Word, Excel, Power Point, etc.) and Outlook.
The information sharing mechanism and document collaboration help increase individual and team productivity, because the environment is designed for implementation, administration and development of easy and flexible applications.
As team members add or delete documents, lists, discussions and queries, SharePoint is automatically updated. Additionally, you can create alerts for the system to notify the changes.
Accessing the available content is getting easier! It has a search engine that allows users to quickly find information relevant to their work context, such as: documents, communities, external information, news, experts, etc.
The solution also ensures the security of information as it filters the data to be shown to users according to their permissions. Finally, the system is automatically updated when any change is made by a user, thus ensuring data accuracy.
SharePoint allows for better creation, organization and presentation of corporate content such as news, announcements, regulations, memos, etc. The solution has mechanisms that enable the management throughout the whole information lifecycle: elaboration, approval workflow, validation, publishing, organization, presentation and removal using familiar tools such as Word. It also has integration with other software such as Access, Excel, PowerPoint and Word.
The content management system allows for an easy exchange of layout of web projects. That is, while you edit the information, the SharePoint interface allows simultaneous display of how the page will look. This avoids surprises and errors when publishing.
Forms and Business Processes
With forms created in SharePoint you can optimize workflows, eliminating the need for paper and facilitating the carrying out of administrative and procedural tasks.
Sharepoint provides internal workflow models to automate approval, analysis and archiving processes. You can create, maintain, and analyze customized workflows, thus streamlining collaborative processes.
This feature enables the assembly of dashboards with charts and consolidated information. SharePoint participants can share spreadsheets in an organized and effective way, so that the graphics are assembled from the information in these spreadsheets, even if they are in the user's machine. Therefore, the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server facilitates access and analysis of updated information anytime and anywhere.
The solution enables you to filter content so that only the most relevant are displayed in a particular arrangement. All this facilitates the analysis of the situation and the acquisition of solutions.
