And that product is Microsoft SharePoint Server 2007. . . . And based on my tests so far, I am impressed.” "If collaboration and file sharing is on your mind, SharePoint Server and its integration with Office 2007 are impressive. . . . the ability to create dynamic sites – and for users to benefit from these tools and create their own My Site pages – is extraordinary.” "In 2007, the marketing associated with the launch of Microsoft Excel Services as part of Office 2007 will create the biggest news in the BI market.” What The Industry Is Saying
