SharePoint 2010 Foundation Overview
SharePoint 2010 Foundation enables teams to create web sites for information sharing and document collaboration. SharePoint 2010 Foundation is a service offered by that provides team services and sites to Microsoft Office applications like Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and other desktop programs. It also serves as a platform for application development. SharePoint makes it easy to create resource portals, team workspaces, and simple yet powerful business process applications that incorporate workflow, email and more. SharePoint 2010 Foundation enables users to locate distributed information quickly and efficiently, as well as connect to and work with others more productively.

How SharePoint 2010 Foundation Works
SharePoint 2010 Foundation sites take file storage to a new level, providing workspaces for team collaboration and making it easy for users to work together on documents, tasks, contacts, events, and other information. In addition, team and site managers can coordinate site content and user activity easily. The SharePoint 2010 Foundation environment is designed for quick and flexible deployment, administration, and application development. SharePoint sites are made up of Web Parts and Windows ASP.NET-based components. Web Parts are designed to be added to pages and configured by site administrators and users, creating complete page-based applications.

Team Community
SharePoint 2010 Foundation sites provide a central place to capture and share ideas, information, and for commenting on documents. The sites facilitate team participation in discussions, shared document collaboration, and surveys. Site content is accessible from both a web browser and through clients that support web services. The document collaboration features allow for easy check in, check out, and document version control.

Individual Empowerment
SharePoint site members can find and communicate with key contacts and experts, both by e-mail and with instant messaging. Site content can be easily searched, and users can also receive alerts to tell them when existing documents and information have been changed, or when new information or documents have been added. Site content and layout can be personalized on a per-user basis, and Web Parts can be used to present targeted information to specific users on precise topics.

Microsoft Office System programs use SharePoint site content. All of a site's collaborative content-for example, documents, lists, events, task assignments, and membership rosters-is read and edited within Microsoft Office Word 2007 and 2010, Microsoft Office Excel 2007 and 2010, and Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 and 2010. Image editing of Web-based photo libraries is also possible. Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 and 2010 allow SharePoint site event calendars to be viewed side-by-side with personal calendars, and they also create meeting-specific workspaces to augment group appointments.
