Today's organizations are dynamic and the modern intranet should reflect that dynamic and flexibility that is sought today. SharePoint is the foundation of the modern intranet, a collaboration platform that focuses on making collaboration and knowledge sharing as simple and user-friendly as possible.
The PowerPoint presentation, meeting notes, and important emails are collected and shared in one place for the benefit of all employees who have access to them.
SharePoint is integrated with all the common operating systems (Microsoft Windows, Apple iOS, Mac OSX, and Android) so today's biggest smartphone religious question is taken out of the equation - everyone can participate. This gives employees who rarely sit at their desks the opportunity to participate on an equal footing with those who have their permanent workplace in the office.
SharePoint is also integrated with Microsoft Yammer, which is your own little social media - just for you. It makes it much easier to get answers to questions in a busy day. Instead of spending a lot of time tracking down the right employee, you let the answer come to you. This makes cross-company collaboration easier and more fun.
