Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 is the latest version of Microsoft's platform for web-based collaboration, portals, and content management. The product has undergone several changes compared to its predecessor, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007. A wide array of out-of-the-box functionality is available, but SharePoint also provides a programming platform that enables significant customization so that its services can be integrated into existing business processes. This paper provides an overview of common business use cases for which SharePoint is a good fit, introduces the services and functionality within SharePoint Server 2010, highlights key changes from MOSS 2007, and helps readers understand the terminology and concepts needed for planning or deploying a SharePoint 2010 farm.
