Information Worker: More Effective Collaboration & Communication
Microsoft offers a variety of technologies that enable our customers to implement productivity-enhancing solutions, such as employee self-service portals, customer self-service portals and partner portals. By implementing web sites that aggregates contextually relevant information, applications, and services, end users can easily connect to the people, information, and business intelligence they require to make timely, critical decisions.
Ultimately the needs of businesses to provide web-based solutions that reduce costs, increase employee productivity, and connect with business partners and customers is achieved by utilizing a number of Microsoft technologies:
Microsoft Office has evolved from a suite of personal productivity
products to a more comprehensive and integrated system. Building
on the familiar tools that many people already know, the Microsoft
Office System includes programs (ie: Excel, InfoPath, Outlook),
servers (ie: Live Communications, SharePoint), services, (ie:
Live Meeting) and solutions designed to work together to help
address a broad array of business problems.
SharePoint Products and Technology:
SharePoint Products and Technologies facilitate collaboration
within an organization and with partners and customers. Using
the combined collaboration features of Windows SharePoint® Services
and Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server, users can easily
create, manage, and build their own collaborative Web sites and
make them available throughout the organization.
