SharePoint for Marketers (a high-level overview)
Microsoft SharePoint 2010 makes it easier to work together and Eweek.com has a great summary of SharePoint 2010, which is an important product for marketers for the following high-level reasons:
- Make Better Decisions: Connect it to your line-of-business applications to pull out just the information that your marketers need, such as your available budget.
- Share: Securely share and collaborate on documents with co-workers so you don't have multiple versions going through e-mail.
- Social Computing: For the large companies, you can network and discover projects and co-workers you didn't know about just like you can on the Internet via social networking services. You can even have your own blogs wikis hosted on SharePoint.
- Business intelligence (BI) dashboards to allow you to see your key performance indicators (KPIs) and drill into them to understand what's driving the trends in your KPIs.
