Benefits of SharePoint

BIT is currently in the process of testing a product from Microsoft called SharePoint. So what is SharePoint? SharePoint is more than just a document drive; it’s a point or virtual place where people can share information electronically in a secure, structured environment.  Using SharePoint could benefit your agency or department through:
  • Management and sharing of documents, anywhere, anytime;
  • List Libraries;
  • Collaboration;
  • Internet Sites;
  • Workflow Management; and
  • Skydrive Pro.
If your agency would like to test SharePoint, please reach out to your BIT Point of Contact to look at setting up a site for you and/or your agency.  SharePoint is licensed with 2 models, Standard and Enterprise.  Basic features such as the items listed above are part of the Standard License Agreement and would be priced per user.  Any other development/designing and or branding could be a potential increase per user to an Enterprise level agreement.  To access any part of the SharePoint Infrastructure users will need to be licensed with a minimum of the Standard CAL.

Check back in with the BIT blog each month for additional information and tutorials on how SharePoint features can benefit you workload. Subscribe to the BIT blog today to insure you don't miss another post, just enter your email in widget on the left side of your screen.
