The Sharepoint 2007 report provides an evaluation of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 as a platform for enterprise intranets.

SP2010 is much more than just an upgrade, but even with four years of intensive development, it is still not the ultimate information management application. Individual applications do not offer all the features of competitors’ products. But that misses the point of SharePoint: it is a well-integrated suite of applications running in a highly consistent way, with an equally consistent development environment.
Calling on his experience of helping organisations implement Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (SharePoint 2007), IBF associate and renowned expert on the selection and implementation of intranet software Martin White has evaluated SharePoint 2007 as a platform for enterprise intranets. The resulting report looks at how SharePoint 2007 works, its strengths and weaknesses as an intranet platform, and how it may evolve in future. It concludes by setting out recommendations for the successful implementation of an enterprise-level intranet using SharePoint 2007.
