Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As businesses attempt to maximize every employee hour, knowledge management and collaboration tools have become more popular. SharePoint Portal Server 2003 offers businesses a secure enterprise portal solution for knowledge management, document sharing, and user collaboration. Built as a hub for the Office 2003 desktop, SharePoint makes it easy for users to get information, work together, and make smarter, faster business decisions. Because the adoption of the 2001 version of the server was slow, Microsoft built the need for SharePoint into the new Office 2003 applications. For instance, using FrontPage 2003 without SharePoint Portal Server 2003 allows only 60-70% of FrontPage functionality. The power of SPS 2003 allows users to create and manage robust, easy-to-build Web sites for collaboration on documents, projects and tasks, and allows these sites to be leveraged throughout the organization. Features such as document versioning, approval workflow, document profiling, and publishing help improve information flow. "Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2003 Unleashed" fills the void readers have been looking for in previous books on the topic with a complete reference written by experts with valuable experience with enterprise-level solution design and implementation.


As businesses attempt to maximize every employee hour, knowledge management and collaboration tools like SharePoint 2003 have become more popular. Now businesses turn their attention to maximize this tool. Microsoft SharePoint 2003 Unleashed, Second Edition can show you how to do this. Revised based on reader feedback, this new edition delves into the power of SharePoint 2003 by going deep inside topics that include:
  • Migrating to SharePoint 2003
  • Planning and Implementing a SharePoint 2003 Environment
  • Managing a SharePoint 2003 Environment
  • Extending the SharePoint 2003 Environment
SharePoint 2003 technologies are designed to make it easier for everyone on a network to find and manage information. Microsoft SharePoint 2003 Unleashed, Second Edition makes it easier to get there.
