Microsoft SharePoint - recommendations / feedback?

We're investigating Microsoft Sharepoint as a collaboration tool for some online project work we have coming up. Is there anyone that we can talk to about this here and could explain a little more about how it works, the benefits and the cost of training our team?

Also - is there anyone currently using Microsoft Sharepoint 2010 that could give some constructive review of their experience with it?

Thanks everyone

Hi,

SharePoint is a browser-based document/information management, collaboration and web content management tool. It can either be hosted on your own servers and accessed from within your company network, or you can now have it hosted on "the cloud" using Microsoft Office 365, which also includes online versions of other Office tools such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

The key benefits of using SharePoint is that it allows a centralised location for storing all of your company information, with each team, department or division having their own site or collection of sites, each of which can be secured so that only the appropriate users can view, add, edit or delete information, or manage the structure of your SharePoint environment.

I have been teaching SharePoint 2003, 2007 and 2010 for many years, and in my experience it is the most complete tool of its kind, and also has a lot of scope for additional customisation, branding and feature development.

If you would like any other information, please contact me on russ@3grow.net.

Kind regards,

Russ
