SharePoint comprises a multipurpose set of Web technologies backed by a common technical infrastructure. By default, SharePoint has a Microsoft Office-like interface, and it is closely integrated with the Office suite. The web tools are designed to be usable by non-technical users. Although we utilize SharePoint primarily for document & file management, other uses include creating collaboration portals, enterprise search, and business intelligence. It also has system integration, process integration, and workflow automation capabilities.
There are essentially three dedicated SharePoint sites within our network used regularly by Home Office and Community staff members. Other SharePoint sites exist for special projects. Below is a diagram of the three dedicated sites and their intended use.
