Business Solutions in SharePoint 2010 without IT support
Information workers in most cases have been provided the SharePoint platform and are then hampered by the lack of support from IT. Due to the overwhelming demand on IT and the fact that IT is supporting all other platforms and infrastructure within an organization, often the result is little or no time or resources remaining to allocate toward the creation of solutions for a given department or organization. With some direction and training from professional resources, SharePoint 2010 can be the optimal business intelligence solution within your organization, providing the leadership of a given department the direction needed to be successful.
Information workers can take advantage of out-of-the-box capabilities in SharePoint 2010 that increase productivity. For instance, they can leverage workflows and customizable views of their critical business data created by IT or advanced users. SharePoint 2010 also can create forms automatically based on templates within SharePoint and other Microsoft Office applications. For example, using forms for input into a list or document, workflows that can be generated from the entered or changed information from that list. Creating many views for a given library or list provides the end user with the information in the format that they require. A power user will grasp most of the out of the box capabilities after implementing a solution and training on the use of some of the more advanced features.
