SharePoint whitepapers released


Microsoft published four whitepapers concerning MOSS 2007

Office SharePoint Server 2007 Document Management Whitepaper

Brief Description

Microsoft delivers an integrated solution that extends document management to all employees. By recognizing that a document’s lifecycle begins the moment it is created and does not end until it is destroyed, organizations can achieve wide adoption and enforcement of enterprise standards, resulting in decreased management costs and reduced corporate risk.

Overview

Most large enterprises rely far too heavily on shared drives and e-mail as the primary mechanisms for storing and sharing enterprise documents. While these solutions work somewhat effectively when dealing with moderate volumes of documents, they cannot scale to meet the evolving needs of most companies. In today’s world, document volumes are growing exponentially, resulting in skyrocketing management costs and inability to find relevant information.

Microsoft has responded to these challenges by delivering an integrated solution that extends document management to all employees. By recognizing that a document’s lifecycle begins the moment it is created and does not end until it is destroyed, organizations can achieve wide adoption and enforcement of enterprise standards, resulting in decreased management costs and reduced corporate risk.

Overview

Over the last few decades, Web technologies have dramatically changed the way that companies conduct business with their customers, partners, and employees. What began as a static store for public information has become a dynamic, evolving environment for managing customer relationships, collaborating with partners, and communicating with employees. Because of the explosive growth of online channels, companies are struggling to manage Web sites and applications, especially in terms of managing content targeted for different audiences in a global environment. As the reliance on Web content has increased, so has the demand for a solution that empowers both business and IT users with the tools they need to efficiently and effectively manage multiple, complex Web sites.

Office SharePoint Server 2007 Workflow Whitepaper

Brief Description

Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server 2007 Workflow solution delivers highly flexible tools like InfoPath Forms Services for data collection and workflow interaction and SharePoint® Designer for easy workflow design and customization including robust out of the box features to enable the rapid deploy solutions across the enterprise.

Overview

Over the last decade, business process management solutions have been gaining considerable momentum as organizations are struggling to maintain consistency and efficiency in executing their core business processes. Workflow for automating formal business processes has been built into enterprise solutions and line-of-business applications, and business process management point solutions have emerged for more comprehensive process management capabilities. Despite these advancements in business process management technologies, workflow and business process management solutions are typically used to address only a small percentage of the work that is done within an enterprise. By focusing exclusively on highly structured business processes designed by a small number of employees, organizations have historically neglected to address and enable the less formal and more iterative work that is completed by the vast majority of employees.

Microsoft has responded to these industry challenges by providing the Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server 2007 Workflow solution that delivers highly flexible tools like InfoPath Forms Services for data collection and workflow interaction and SharePoint® Designer for easy workflow design and customization including robust out of the box features to enable the rapid deployment and adoption of business process solutions across the enterprise. By supplementing formalized process execution with collaborative human interaction, employees can work more effectively in the context of the larger goals of the enterprise.

By viewing retention and records management as a component of the overall document lifecycle, organizations can reduce risk and improve compliance with increased adoption of records management practices.

Overview
