Increased Sales Of SharePoint
SharePoint is still the most successful and increasingly controversial line of software created by Microsoft. Companies use it to deploy websites and then manage content for those sites. It can help their workers collaborate on documents and projects. And it has also an intricate mixture of advanced search and business intelligence tools. Microsoft combines all of these goodies into a package and sells it at a realistic price.
