MOSS2010 Key Features


Sharepoint is a product that is truly what you make of it, and has always been more platform than simple product. Companies who invested in proper customization and integration have been able to benefit from it much more than organizations who simply deployed Sharepoint and made it available out of the box.

Sharepoint 2010 is much more usable out of the box. The new ribbon interface is intuitive and familiar to Office users, and the product is much tighter, but the need for customization and integration remains. Luckily, Sharepoint 2010 is more focused than ever on being a platform for developers.

Microsoft announced about the SharePoint 2010 technical preview.

SharePoint 2010 has hardware and other limitations:

  1. SharePoint 2010 will only be available in a 64-bit version. This change is not limited to servers. Developers running on 32-bit hardware will need new machines.
  2. SharePoint 2010 will require a 64-bit version of SQL Server 2005 or 2008 (2000 is no longer supported).
  3. Not all applications written for SharePoint 2007 will work in 2010. Certain APIs will be no longer be available. Others will be deprecated.
  4. The basic flow for many tasks as changed. That, coupled with the laundry list of productivity-enhancing features means that any 2010 deployment should be accompanied by training for users, administrators, and developers.
