Sharepoint 2007 feature Comparison

This article has been moved here…..

While i havent actually gotten around to doing a comprehensive write-up on this new application from Microsoft i figured that prospective users out there might be interested in knowing how different this new version is from the older one.

I’ve spent the last 2 years working with Sharepoint V2 ( 2003 ) amongst many other KM tools and honestly while perfectly suited as a document management tool it is FAR from being even close to a KM application.

Sharepoint V3 has made up for it by providing a very tightly integrated platform to faciliate sharing of knowledge. Having worked on it for the past couple of months i can say this is the first time i have felt Microsoft has a KM contender. This excel sheet ( put together by Microsoft ) is a feature comparison between the various types of Sharepoint. Go through it when you have the time, will give you some insight on what you can expect from this new tool.

The areas covered in this document are as follows :

  • Collaboration
  • Enterprise Portal
  • Enterprise Search
  • Enterprise Content Management
  • Forms-Driven Business Processes
  • Business Intelligence
  • Management
  • Platform Capabilities

      You have put your thoughts about Sharepoint V3 so nicely. I have an experience woking with Sharepoint V2 and I personally loved it. MOSS 2007 is not focused on KM needs of an organization rather MS is projecting it more like a document reposistory. Typically this approach of collaboration/Doucmnet sharing does not contribute towards the KM, rather a huddle in some cases where organization is scattered in pieces in terms of working departments and everyone needs a place to store/share their documents! I find this feature is more of a hinderence than a benefit. Pls do let me know your thoughts on this.
