5 What The Industry Is Saying "If collaboration and file sharing is on your mind, SharePoint Server and its integration with Office 2007 are impressive.... the ability to create dynamic sites – and for users to benefit from these tools and create their own My Site pages – is extraordinary.” "In 2007, the marketing associated with the launch of Microsoft Excel Services as part of Office 2007 will create the biggest news in the BI market.” “SharePoint Server 2007 is an (Able) Jack of All Trades.. Most importantly – and the reason for which eWEEK Labs has given the platform an Analyst's Choice award—SharePoint Server 2007 is the best product we've seen for getting a capable and feature-rich enterprise Web platform up and running quickly.“ Top 5 Web Application Developments Of the Year "But getting lost a bit in the noise and hype is one Microsoft product release that, in the long run, may end up being the most important, especially on the enterprise side. And that product is Microsoft SharePoint Server And based on my tests so far, I am impressed.”
