With SharePoint Portal Server, you are able to utilize your existing information effectively, and to capture information in new ways that make sense for your business. You can rapidly deploy an out-of-the-box portal site and easily use Web-Parts technology to customize a Web-based view of your organization.

You have the ability to quickly deploy an out-of-the-box portal solution that facilitates finding, creating, and sharing all of your mission-critical data from a browser-based interface. The portal features search technology developed by Microsoft Research that enables you to search file shares, Web servers, Microsoft Exchange Server public folders, Lotus Notes, and Windows SharePoint Services sites out of the box. You can organize documents and information by topic and browse for relevant content.

SharePoint Portal Server can be extended by adding additional Web application functionality. SharePoint Portal Server is designed around industry and Internet standards, such as OLE DB, Microsoft ActiveX® Data Objects (ADO), Extensible Markup Language (XML), and Microsoft Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV), making it easy for developers familiar with these standards. Due to this support of standards, the use of tools like Microsoft Visual Studio® allows you to integrate Active Server Pages (ASP) functionality into the portal.

Everyone works with documents, but not everyone has the ability to use technology to structure how they work with their colleagues on these documents. The process from document creation through intranet publishing can be a string of disjointed actions, unconnected with business processes. SharePoint Portal Server includes features like document locking, versioning, and publishing and makes these features accessible to the average user. It delivers easy-to-use, document-management features that are integrated with the tools and applications that are used to create and manage documents, with Microsoft Windows® Explorer and Microsoft Office 2000 applications like Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint®.

Using SharePoint Portal Server, you can also save and check documents into the document store, capturing business-relevant metadata in Document Profile forms. You can also tailor forms to your organization. Tracking changes though multiple drafts as a document is edited, reviewed, and approved is accomplished using integrated approval routing. This occurs prior to publishing for public viewing on the intranet dashboard site. You can also roll back to a previous version of a document. Look for features like Document Collaboration, Profiling, Lifecycle Management, and Web-based document management through a browser.

Locating information in any organization can be challenging. In addition, wading through the different forms, file formats, and storage locations that information requires (documents on file servers, HTML pages on Web servers, or e-mail on messaging servers), and finding what you need when you need it, can be difficult. People need a consistent place to access needed information—and in a structured way that makes sense. Intranet portals have become the place where such information is aggregated, organized, and searchable.

With SharePoint Portal Server, you have the power of Microsoft’s robust search technologies to create an intranet site that lets you easily access key content from a broader set of enterprise information. In addition to having one comprehensive place in the portal to search, you can also set the portal to have information come to you with information subscription—directly delivering new and changed content notifications.

Some of the features to explore in SharePoint Portal Server are Subscriptions, Category Browsing, Best Bets in Search results, and extensibility using third-party, or your own, digital dashboard Web Parts.
