What does it all mean?
Sites – they aren’t being referred to as portals anymore, (there goes my easy explanation of what SharePoint is). Sites are designed to share information securely and cover all mediums; intranets, internets, extranets and team sites. Checking in / out multiple documents is now a breeze!
Communities – empowering people to work together seamlessly in new ways, (think out of the box).
Content – management of content from its creation to its destruction and sharing it in ways to make it come alive.
Search – FAST had been integrated to make rich people search and data effortless. Previously ‘locked’ business data (line of business, transactional databases, etc), can now be searched as well. Getting results right the first time was the top focus.
Insights – allowing you to make better decisions faster and viewing data, people and systems effortlessly in order to make those decisions.
Composites – ‘rapid business solution development’, meaning you can build solutions with ease on top of SharePoint now. SharePoint Designer and Visual Studio integration is far less complicated.
