What the hell Sharepoint really is?
I worked with Sharepoint for couple of months. The embarrassing thing is that when my wife asked me what is Sharepoint, I can not make myself clear. Can some walk me out? Thank,

I like to think of sharepoint as new and more efficient way to share information and collaborate in an organizational setting. For example in an organization of 100 employees you might have 100 individual PCs and hard drives with both individual and group information. More than likely you would find many duplicate files on the 100 PCs. With Sharepoint you still have the 100 PCs, but now you have team sites where these documents can be published to the sites vs. on individual PC hard drives. This enables more efficient file sharing and editing. The other capability of Sharepoint is to facilitate teaming, with the ability to create meeting sites, where agendas can be established and meeting content can be published for attendee convenience. Meetings with remote participants are also enabled through Sharepoint. Hope this helps.
