Microsoft SharePoint now available to all departments

OIT is pleased to announce that SharePoint, a web-based collaborative tool for sharing information and documents, is now available to all departments. Microsoft SharePoint is an enterprise collaboration environment that can be used for website creation, document sharing, group discussions, blogging, calendaring, and wikis.

SharePoint is integrated with Microsoft Office on the Windows operating system and is therefore a good fit for Microsoft "shops" on campus with users who primarily use Windows and Microsoft Office applications. This environment is most appropriate for administrative staff and faculty interested in tracking tasks, calendaring events, reviewing and tracking changes of shared documents, and the use of change management methodologies. Team oriented project work would be the typical implementation for this collaborative solution.
