SharePoint 2010 news:
Microsoft has announced that Office 2010 and SharePoint
2010 will be released on May 12, 2010.
The description of product enhancements is both impressive and exciting. From
the complete feature list,
posted on the official Microsoft Team
Blog, my top 5 feature enhancements are as follows.
- Large Lists and Libraries We made
architecture and user experience investments so you have much
larger document libraries with metadata driven navigation to
help users go quickly to the content that is most important to
them. Libraries will scale to tens of millions and archives to
hundreds of millions of documents. This is a key investment for
high-end document and records management but also helps
organizations with lots of smaller sites. We enhanced the
workflow capabilities and tools in SharePoint Designer.
- Document Sets We are introducing a
way to manage a collection of documents as a single object for
workflow, metadata, etc. within SharePoint and Office so
experience more closely models your work product (e.g. a
proposal that may contain a presentation, budget, contract,
- Excel Services Excel rendering and
interactivity in SharePoint gets better with richer pivoting,
slicing and visualizations like heatmaps and sparklines. New
REST support makes it easier to add server-based calculations
and charts to web pages and mash-ups.
- SQL Server The SharePoint and SQL Server
teams have worked together so SQL Server capabilities like
Analysis Services and Reporting Services are easier to access
from within SharePoint and Excel. We are exposing these
interfaces and working with other BI vendors so they can plug in
their solutions as well.
- Access Services - Users have long loved the
ability to create database applications quickly with forms and
views. Access Services lets you publish new Access solutions to
a SharePoint site where they can be managed centrally and
accessed (necessary pun) from a web browser.
