8 What SharePoint is SharePoint is a collaboration tool from Microsoft −Allows an organization to quickly/easily build interactive web collaboration sites −Included with Windows 2003 Server »So basically, it’s free for internal use −For External Use »Must purchase SharePoint Portal server −As a collaboration took, SharePoint provides: »Calendars, lists, tasks, discussions… »And yes, it also provides limited document management

9 What SharePoint is not SharePoint is not an Engineering Content Management solution −No MicroStation or AutoCAD integration −No Integration with vertical applications −No plotting integration −No Indexing / full text search (for CAD files) −No distributed storage −No publishing / web viewing of CAD documents −No Geospatial features

10 Our goal with SharePoint Keep the engineering content stored in ProjectWise −And allow it to be accessed from a SharePoint collaboration site »But, avoid copying (duplicating) the files to SharePoint
