Executive Summary

Executives at Timken were anxious to rebuild the company's entire portal to improve the efficiency of diverse, global content management. They selected Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 as the company's portal solution and SAP as its enterprise resource planning solution. But, the Timken in-house IT staff needed help. Since Office SharePoint Server 2007 was new to the market and to Timken, the IT team lacked architecture knowledge and the development skills necessary to implement Office SharePoint Server 2007, especially given the scope and complexity of the company's unique deployment challenges. For Timken, the tactical goal of the project was to make Office SharePoint Server 2007 the solution for its Internet-facing Web site first.
