Forms Server 2007

Communications Server 2007 

PerformancePoint Server 2007 

Project Portfolio Server 2007 

Project Server 2007 

SharePoint® Server 2007 for Search

 

Along with the release of Windows Vista and the revamped suite of Office 2007 products, Microsoft has released a line-up of new servers. Exchange Server 2007 and SharePoint® Server 2007 are two of the major players, but there are also seven additional Office 2007 Servers of which you may not be aware that can add productivity to your environment in a variety of ways.

 

Each of the seven servers is unique and requires distinct assessment to determine if your company can benefit from any given server. This book provides you with the knowledge you need to determine the use of each server, the prerequisites and procedures of server installation, the post-installation configuration options so you can set it and forget it, and finally, a look at the client-side applications that interact with the new servers.

 

Detailed information on how to…

  • Install each of the seven Office 2007 Servers, including both standalone and server farm installation.
  • Handle post-installation configuration options for each of the seven Office 2007 Servers.
  • Create InfoPath forms to post to your InfoPath Forms Server.
  • Work with the Groove client once your Groove Servers are in place.
  • Communicate more efficiently within your company using a Communications Server and the new Communicator 2007 client.
  • Handle larger projects through Project Professional 2007 with your new Project Server and Project Portfolio Server.
  • Understand Business Intelligence (BI) in order to manage your company’s future through PerformancePoint Server.
  • Improve your ability to search for content through your SharePoint Server for Search.

Book News Annotation:

Intended for experienced administrators, this guide describes the seven servers released as part of the new Office 2007 product line, and clarifies which servers will meet which business needs. The authors walk through the basic installation process for each server, outline points to consider before deployment, and explain the different configuration options, client types, management settings, and security features. Black and white screenshots are provided. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In addition to Word, Excel, Outlook, etc., Office 2007 offers a plethora of new and revised server products to facilitate collaboration. However, there has been very little information published on these important tools. The information contained within this book simply doesn't exist elsewhere. This book walks an admin through the specifications for installing each server, the steps involved, caveats to the application, how to use it with Office 2007 and provides best practice ideas. It is clear and cuts through the marketing jargon. Admins don't need all that extra wording, they need just the facts.

"Synopsis" by , In addition to Word, Excel, Outlook, etc., Office 2007 offers a plethora of new and revised server products to facilitate collaboration. However, there has been very little information published on these important tools. The information contained within this book simply doesn't exist elsewhere. This book walks an admin through the specifications for installing each server, the steps involved, caveats to the application, how to use it with Office 2007 and provides best practice ideas. It is clear and cuts through the marketing jargon. Admins don't need all that extra wording, they need just the facts.
