Information Technology- the term was alien even to most of the educated Indian people some years back. But within a brief span of time this very term has gained immense popularity. Especially after the economic liberation policy of 1991, there was an IT boom in the Indian economy. According to the recent studies, the lion’s share of the revenue of the Indian Government is earned today from the service sector whose greatest slice is occupied by the companies based on software and information technology. And whenever this context comes, nobody can ignore the sphere of SharePoint Deployments
SharePoint deployments require huge team effort, coordination, and management. Strategy and governance plans need to be locked down for companies before going ahead with a SharePoint development. Like any other project SharePoint also involves risks for both business and IT people. As this software platform is multifunctional, choices are many. Utilized for document management, a workflow environment, content management, extranet, collaboration, and portal, SharePoint deployment could be different from the way software companies made use of it. The final focus of the deployment must be on the business case. People make use of SharePoint to manage Office documents. This is getting used to manage large files like satellite data, 15-MB PowerPoint files, and even huge and branched data sets. Various clients are performing business intelligence (BI) implementations in association with SharePoint technologies by deploying dashboards and portals. The purpose is to show BI or transactional data. Microsoft PerformancePoint, Microsoft PowerPivot, and SQL Server Reporting Services are also used in this process in conjunction with other BI environments like Oracle's Hyperion and IBM's Cognos. As for example, building applications on SharePoint, integrating it with particular ERP system, and then inserting the ERP data showcases exclusive deployment of SharePoint.
