ITS SharePoint Services
Microsoft SharePoint is a web-based collaboration tool that allows users to share information, documents, calendars, tasks, and much more. SharePoint is available to all Vanderbilt departments.
The following paragraph is from Microsoft's Office SharePoint Server 2010 product overview:
SharePoint 2010 is the business collaboration platform for the Enterprise and the Internet. When people need to work with other people, with content and information, or with line-of-business data, they can use the rich, out-of-the-box set of integrated capabilities in the SharePoint 2010 platform. People can also customize these capabilities to address specific business needs and integrate them with other products and solutions. Using the same set of capabilities and tools, companies can deploy SharePoint 2010 both inside the enterprise (that is, intranets) and outside of the firewall (that is, extranets, the Internet) so employees, customers, and business partners can work with the platform.
