Finally there is the Microsoft Search Server, an Enterprise Search engine that provides advanced indexing and searching capabilities that can be integrated into a MOSS Web-based interface.

Microsoft itself describes SharePoint as Collaboration, Portal, Search, Enterprise Content Management (ECM) , Business process management (BPM) and Business intelligence (BI), so again a lot to chose from.

Research by AIIM has shown that even today many people start their large information management projects without a clear plan, or without a plan altogether, or steadfastly ignoring the one that you have. For a product that has so many facets as a SharePoint installation can potentially have it is choice that needs to be made before you jump in.

AIIM has developed a number of educational programs that deal with the question of planning before installing. Classes on Enterprise Content Management (ECM), Taxonomy and Metadata, Business Process Management (BPM), SharePoint for ECM, SharePoint for Collaboration and Electronic Records Management (ERM) help users in understanding the main components of each of these and then shows them how to apply these in a working environment. Programs will allow you to run the necessary investigations into your own business needs.
