More and more customers are extending their SharePoint solutions off of the corporate network and out to the Internet as public-facing web sites and Extranets for customers and business partners. This session will provide an introduction to SharePoint’s Web Content Management capabilities, branding, rich user experiences, Extranet security, and hosting options. We will examine several live sites and customer success stories as examples.

The enterprise features of SharePoint Server 2007 can dramatically add to your SharePoint-based solution, with features like Forms Services, Excel Services, Business Data Catalog, Key Performance Indicators, PerformancePoint Services, and optional access to FAST search technologies. This session will provide demonstrations of how to use business data in document libraries and search, Excel as a tier-one development tool, and how to integrate forms into your Web-based applications.

Most people are aware of the meaning of a dashboard, but few focus on delivering the most appealing dashboards for visual and business impact for business users. In this session we will explore key attributes that make an impactful solution by showing examples that leverage a variety of Microsoft tools with SharePoint as the key delivery mechanism.
