If you don't know much about SharePoint, this may help you understand how it can dramatically improve productivity and access to data critical to your business and how to share it with workers and others. While SharePoint used to be only for larger companies with big IT staff and budgets, it is now well within the reach of even the smallest one- or two-person companies. Who knew?

What is SharePoint?

SharePoint is a web-based collaborative platform product from Microsoft. Store your documents with far more features and benefits than shared folders, even in the cloud, provide, set up discussions, track issues, monitor tasks and projects. Set up shared calendars and contact lists. Control who has access to which items, all instantly available from a simple, easy-to-learn and -use interface. And you can share parts or all of your sites with people external to your organization with a simple mouse click. Connect these elements to Outlook and your tablets and smartphones.
Most companies only use SharePoint to store documents, but SharePoint is also a great development platform. Extend any of the out-of-the-box (OOTB) elements like those listed above without any programming knowledge or experience. Add fields to libraries and lists, create new views of how to display data, and craft your own custom libraries and lists, contacts and calendars and so much more. Modify how the pages are displayed in your web browser (Internet Explorer, FireFox, Chrome and Safari) by built-in editing features or for more advanced tasks, by using SharePoint Designer, a free product Microsoft provides. Connect to external Line of Business (LOB) databases and be able to display and even modify their contents with InfoPath forms that SharePoint can use with its lists. And if that isn't enough, SharePoint allows custom code to create your own, web-based applications.
