As businesses attempt to maximize every employee hour, knowledge management and collaboration tools have become more popular. SharePoint Portal Server 2003 offers businesses a secure enterprise portal solution for knowledge management, document sharing, and user collaboration. Built as a hub for the Office 2003 desktop, SharePoint makes it easy for users to get information, work together, and make smarter, faster business decisions. Because the adoption of the 2001 version of the server was slow, Microsoft built the need for SharePoint into the new Office 2003 applications. For instance, using FrontPage 2003 without SharePoint Portal Server 2003 allows only 60-70% of FrontPage functionality. The power of SPS 2003 allows users to create and manage robust, easy-to-build Web sites for collaboration on documents, projects and tasks, and allows these sites to be leveraged throughout the organization. Features such as document versioning, approval workflow, document profiling, and publishing help improve information flow. Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2003 Unleashed fills the void readers have been looking for in previous books on the topic with a complete reference written by experts with valuable experience with enterprise-level solution design and implementation.
