SharePoint Portal Server is a secure, scalable, enterprise portal server built upon Windows SharePoint Services. It allows users to create, manage, and build their own collective intranet or web sites throughout their organization. Sharing information with partners, co-workers and customers is made easy with functions such as navigation, search, application integration and personalization.

Developer Perspective

SharePoint can be used to solve four problems:

  1. How to keep track of and share important documents, even a small office.
  2. How to easily access and share files in a secure and convenient way.
  3. How to access all necessary documents when working from a variety of different locations.
  4. How to eliminate the large costs associated with creating and maintaining websites internally.
