Great CIO Magazine Article "Understanding Microsoft Sharepoint in Web 2.0 World"

This strategic relationship between Awareness and Microsoft is valuable for users that "live" in Microsoft Office SharePoint Products and Technologies and need to engage with groups outside the enterprise, such as customers, partners, prospects, etc. By integrating internal-facing environments with social networking participation points from external-facing Web 2.0 communities, it becomes much easier to pull valuable information into the enterprise where people can use it.

The integration makes possible the following features within Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0:

  • Dashboard of Awareness community activity;
  • Integration with Microsoft identity management (Single Sign-On) allows for a seamless user experience;
  • Integrated search of SharePoint Products and Technologies and Awareness content;
  • Access to Awareness community social networking functionalities, including people lists, updateable and customizable status and profile; and
  • Enhanced user-generated content functionality, including voting and commenting on content.
