Features and Benefits

I.B.I.S., Inc. Enterprise Portals facilitate collaboration, provide full content management features, streamline business processes, and provides access to critical intelligence across the enterprise. Key features available in I.B.I.S., Inc. Enterprise Portal Solutions are detailed below.

Internal and External Collaboration
Find information and connect with subject matter experts regardless of their location. Share knowledge and simplify working with others within and across organizational boundaries. Make it easier to search for information and people. SharePoint Enterprise Search incorporates people and business data along with documents and Web pages to provide more comprehensive results. The Search Center within SharePoint provides a single integrated location for employees to search for the organizational resources they need. Alerts on search results notify users when new query matches are discovered. SharePoint has a broad set of enterprise search capabilities that are based on SharePoint Products and that serve the enterprise as growth, maturity, and changing business needs redefine your organizational enterprise search requirements.

Content Management

Create and manage documents, records, and Web content. Allow teams to work together effectively, collaborate on and publish documents, maintain task lists, implement workflows, and share ideas and expertise. The Content Organizer automatically routes content to locations based on content types and metadata values. This minimizes errors in content classification and improves search capabilities. The navigations panes available to SharePoint users are driven by available metadata. As a user progresses through the navigation process the refinement options are updated to reflect the metadata available. Derive more value from information assets and simplify compliance by providing comprehensive control over the entire life cycle of electronic content, including documents, Web pages, PDF files, and e-mail messages.

 

Web Templates

Make use of easy-to-use templates to create, approve, and publish Web content. Master pages and page layouts provide reusable templates for a consistent look and feel. Built-in functionality enables enterprises to publish content from one of your Web properties to another (for example, from a collaborative site to a portal), or cost-effectively manage multilingual delivery of content on multiple intranet, extranet, and Internet sites.

Enterprise Search

Quickly and easily find people, expertise, and content in business applications. FAST search technology in SharePoint combines the best of FAST’s high-end search capabilities with the best of SharePoint. With Enterprise Portal Solutions team and company members can quickly and easily find people, expertise, and content by searching on keywords and phrases.

Business Intelligence

Make better-informed decisions at all levels of the organization by efficiently finding, assembling, and analyzing critical business information from disparate sources such as documents, servers, databases, file shares, people, and SharePoint sites. With the Business Data Catalog (BDC), IT can create a pool of connections to business systems such as SAP®1 and Siebel that can easily be reused to create personalized, interactive data views from browsers without writing code. Combine the BDC with SharePoint Enterprise Search to give users the ability to search virtually any business system. Capitalize on your unstructured business networks to drive better decisions. Employees can use new knowledge management tools to get the most from unstructured business networks, both inside and outside their organizations, by connecting people more quickly and efficiently. By exploring these undocumented business relationships and finding subject matter experts, individuals can make better decisions more quickly.

Document Management

Store and organize all business documents and content in one central location, and users have a consistent mechanism to navigate and find relevant information. Default repository settings can be modified to add workflow, define retention policies, and add new templates and content types. Help keep documents secure through detailed, extensible policy management. Define customized document management policies to control access rights at a per-item level, specify retention period and expiration actions, and track content through document-auditing settings. Policy integration with familiar desktop client applications makes compliance transparent and easy for employees. Integration with information rights management enables persistent policies to be automatically embedded within documents, helping to ensure that confidential information is better protected even when the document is not connected to a server.

Microsoft Office Integration

Microsoft SharePoint includes a Connect to Office that tells Microsoft Office which SharePoint libraries the user commonly interacts with. This makes the library available when the user launches an Office application, so SharePoint libraries are available with local folders.

Microsoft SharePoint Vs. the Competition

Unlike other products in the market, SharePoint provides and all-encompassing solution for businesses.  When making a decision as significant as choosing collaboration software it is important to compare and evaluate the options.  SharePoint Server supports all intranet, extranet, and Web applications across an enterprise within one integrated platform, instead of relying on separate fragmented systems. Additionally, this collaboration and content management server provides IT professionals and developers with the platform and tools they need for server administration, application extensibility, and interoperability.
