Mary Joe Foley has a dead-on (in my opinion) view of Microsoft’s latest release of SharePoint, called Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.
I’m part of a team at my work and we’re evaluating content management and collaboration services for our Internal communication. In my experience with SharePoint, it’s obvious that MS wants SharePoint to be the nucleus of the new office workplace. SharePoint has tight integration with Microsoft Office (especially the new 2007 version) and it’s almost scarily easy to use. So far SharePoint appears to be a very good product.
