  • Effectively manage and re-utilise content to gain increased business value - Business users and content authors are able to create and submit content for approval to be scheduled for deployment or publication to the intranet or extranet.
  • Simplify organisation - wide processes to both structured and unstructured information - Users are able to customise views and interactions with business systems whilst enterprise wide document repositories enable enterprise standardisation through standardised processes built into the application.
  • Provide a single, integrated platform to manage intranet, extranet and internet applications across the enterprise - Office SharePoint is built on an open scalable architecture which supports xml and Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP). The interfaces themselves are open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) making it an extremely flexible application which connects very easily with other applications.
