Microsoft SharePoint is a popular business platform that supports a wide variety of projects, from simple document management solutions to networking portals and Internet sites. Since it was launched in 2001, SharePoint has emerged as a common IT resource for diverse enterprises.
SharePoint evolved from projects codenamed "Office Server" and "Tahoe" during the Office XP development cycle.
Today's MS SharePoint includes several products, including SharePoint Foundation, SharePoint Online for Web functionality, SharePoint Server, SharePoint Designer and SharePoint Workspace; the additional SharePoint modules offer their own features for the site or network design.
MS SharePoint has traditionally been used as a document management tool or content management system (CMS), or to set up a business intranet. Now, as more advanced technologies offer additional benefits to companies, many of these, like specific enterprise resource planning tools and customer relationship management (CRM) interfaces, are SharePoint compatible, so that they can be added to a legacy SharePoint system.
SharePoint is primarily configured through a web browser. The web-based user interface provides most of the configuration capability of the product.
Organizations use SharePoint to create websites. You can use it as a secure place to store, organize, share, and access information from any device. All you need is a web browser, such as Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Firefox.
SharePoint usage varies from organization to organization. The product encompasses a wide variety of capabilities, most of which require configuration and governance.
SharePoint provides free-form pages which may be edited in-browser. These may be used to provide content to users or to provide structure to the SharePoint environment.
