Companies have been talking about knowledge management and leveraging their IT investments to enhance team collaboration for years, but have had difficulty implementing effective solutions that tie together the wide range of information employees need to access. SharePoint 2003 made great inroads into filling these needs. SharePoint 2007 will make even greater strides in enabling organizations to create a practical framework to bring together information from such diverse systems as Office, Visual Studio, SQL Server, Windows Server, and other Microsoft servers. Previous editions of this book have been bestsellers. With this release, SharePoint has gotten so big that we have split this edition of SharePoint Unleashed into two books, this one for administrators and a second one for developers (Microsoft SharePoint 2007 Development Unleashed.) This one will provide comprehensive, practical coverage for administrators, on topics including planning; implementation; migration; administration; working with tools for endusers, administrators, and managers; and extensions for workflows, business processes, and business intelligence.
