As the volume of intranet content grows, administrators and users are increasingly looking for ways to manage the volume of information. Just as Netscape aggregated the then-growing internet content into a manageable framework (called a portal), application vendors have created many packages that allow their customers to aggregate their intranet content into corporate portals.
This series of articles will discuss Microsoft’s portal product — SharePoint Portal Server. I hope to provide some value to the readers of Intranet Journal regarding the capabilities (and limitations) of SharePoint. Your feedback is encouraged, and will help me to cover topics that you find relevant.
