Overview

Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 and SharePoint Server 2010 provide a collection of tools and services you can use to improve user and team productivity, make information sharing more effective, and facilitate business decision–making processes. In order to get the most out of SharePoint 2010, you need to understand how to best use the capabilities to support your information management, collaboration, and business process management needs.

This book is designed to provide you with the information you need to effectively use these tools. Whether you are using SharePoint as an intranet or business solution platform, you will learn how to use the resources (such as lists, libraries, and sites) and services (such as publishing, workflow, and policies) that make up these environments. Information and process owners will be given the knowledge they need to build and manage solutions. Information and process consumers will be given the knowledge they need to effectively use SharePoint resources.

In this book, Seth Bates and Tony Smith walk you through the components and capabilities that make up a SharePoint 2010 environment. Their expertise shines as they provide step-by-step instructions for using and managing these elements, as well as recommendations for how to best leverage them. As a reader, you’ll then embrace two common SharePoint uses, document management and project information management, and walk through creating samples of these solutions, understanding the challenges these solutions are designed to address and the benefits they can provide.

The authors have brought together this information based on their extensive experience working with these tools and with business users who effectively leverage these technologies within their organizations. These experiences were incorporated into the writing of this book to make it easy for you to gain the knowledge you need to make the most of the product.

What you’ll learn

  • How to use common SharePoint resources like lists, libraries, and sites
  • When and how workflows can control the flow and action of content
  • How to create policies for SharePoint information management and control

    Great Buy for the Money

    I think this is one of the better Apress books I've read. The authors definitely have some business skills which can be seen through the 3 execution examples in the later part of the book. There are pluses and minuses to this book. For the negative aspects: a wordy dialect and graphics that take up too much of the page. If you're not already familiar with SP then this book might be difficult unless you are acting out every instruction on the app. The overall organization I feel is good; I didn't at first as I made my way through the first 5 chapters but then it made sense. SharePoint has so many facets and endless connections to the other Office products that it's difficult not to create a book that seems 'jumpy', but the authors do a decent job overall. I've used Sp for 3 years and became pretty good at it without any instruction so this book helped to explain a number of areas that I didn't know or were confused on. I would recommend this book for the beginner-intermediate as is indicated. I would also buy this book as it's a decent reference. VALUE (bad, eh, good, great): Good. BUY or RENT: Buy.

    Terrific Resource

    I've made this book a required read for our technicians and our business analyst. We found it to be a great resource for our day-to-day work with SharePoint as well as a good introduction to the wealth of features and functions the platform offers. This is yet another terrific publication by Seth Bates and Tony Smith. I highly recommend this read for all technology professionals from infrastructure admins to business analysts.
