By: Clint Jhonson

What is Sharepoint? A rough explanation would be a platform used for document management developed by the computer software giant Microsoft. The main use for it is for hosting websites that can be used for access of shared documents and workplaces. Other applications can also be accessed through it, among which we can name blogs and wikis, as well as others from within a browser.

The word Sharepoint commonly makes reference to either Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server 2007 or Windows Sharepoint Services. There are many other applications that can be related to the Sharepoint family, but mainly the term refers to these two.

In order to understand I should explain what both the Sharepoint Server 2007 and the Sharepoint Services mean. The second one is a free add-on for Windows Server which can provide the base collaborative infrastructure because it supports the editing of documents based on HTTP and HTTPS.

Other advantages of the Windows Sharepoint Services include the organization of documents in specific libraries facilitating their access, wikis and blogs. You can also embed web parts into Sharepoint pages in order to improve the functionality for the users. Among them we can name alerts, discussion boards, to-do lists, workflows and many others.
