Description

Description

SharePoint Server is a server platform for information sharing, collaboration, and content management. Its services can be accessed only by appropriately licensed internal users.

This product includes a server license. Each user or device that accesses SharePoint Server must have a Standard client access license (CAL). Additive Enterprise CALs are required to access certain features. See a summary of Volume Licensing Product Use Rights for specific licensing details.

Benefits for Organisations

If you have system administration experience, you can use SharePoint Server to:

  • Create an intranet portal for your organisation to share information
  • Manage and edit documents among multiple users and offices
  • Develop a public-facing website

Major Capabilities

  • Collaboration: You can create content from their preferred web browser or from desktop applications such as Microsoft Word. Automated versioning and workflows, document check-out, and sophisticated access controls help teams work on shared documents with minimal confusion and misunderstanding.
  • Enterprise Content Management: Users within your organisation can manage their content on a single unified platform for the entire content life cycle — from creation through editing, collaboration, and approval, to long-term retention or final expiration. SharePoint can also help implement and automate compliance with information management and data security policies.
  • Enterprise Search: The search infrastructure combines federated search, relevance, refinement, and social cues to speed up search and help people find the information and contacts they need.
  • Portals: You can build and maintain multiple content portals on a single SharePoint installation, with each portal customized for a particular business activity or organisational stakeholder. For example, you can build an enterprise intranet portal for all employees and a divisional portal site for particular departments.

SharePoint Server Foundation

SharePoint Foundation is a collaboration platform and foundation for building web applications. It is available free of charge from Microsoft. All of the features in SharePoint Foundation are also available in SharePoint Server.
