What is Sharepoint ?
Microsoft SharePoint is a web-based application framework originally launched in 2001. Microsoft specifically developed SharePoint for midsize to large businesses. This application integrates three important components: content management, document management and intranet. SharePoint provides common technical infrastructure to combine the functionality of different Web technologies. With already familiar and friendly-user interface as well as highly flexible architecture SharePoint can improve your business and provide number of possibilities that will maximize your efficiency.
SharePoint is directly integrated with Microsoft’s Internet Information Services that provides useful tools like central management, control and security for implementation of your web-based technologies and application programming interfaces (API’s). Enterprise resource planning software (ERP) and customer relationship management packages (CRM’s) often come with SharePoint integration. Microsoft tends to offer SharePoint along with Office 365 suite for better performance and connectivity.
The SharePoint framework includes the following applications:
- File and document management
- Intranet portals
- Improved collaboration
- Social networks
- Business intelligence
- Enterprise search
As for the architecture design, this platform has n-tier service-oriented architecture (SOA) that can be adjusted and modified regarding your needs and requirements. Microsoft SharePoint’s architecture is composed of four key components:
- SharePoint farms
- Farms is a group of logical SharePoint servers that share and use common resources and each farm is connected to a configuration database.
- Web apps
- Web application is an interface so the user could interact with a farm and a containers for SharePoint farms.
- Site collections
- Each web application has a site collection. It’s used mainly to group SharePoint sites.
- Service applications
- SAs provides SharePoint functionality to other apps in one collection. They can be loaded, enabled or disabled in different servers at once.
