Audience Targeting

In SharePoint 2010 users can target Web Part content in two ways:

  2. Configure Web Parts to display different content based on audience membership.

Document Management

SharePoint 2010 includes a broad collection of new capabilities that simplify and streamline how companies manage documents.
  • Content Organizer

    Content Organizer is a rules-based classification engine that provides consistent classification of content based on Content Type and specific metadata properties. Site owners can create rules to drive content to specific document libraries and folders, where they inherit access control policy, default metadata values, and specific retention schedules.
  • Document Sets

    Using Document Set users can bundle multiple documents that support a single case, project, contract, etc… under a unique entity. But the set can share metadata properties, and users can apply workflows and versioning to the Document Set as a whole. Each Document Set has a customizable welcome page that displays shared metadata properties.
  • Document IDs

    SharePoint 2010 offers a new capability that assigns documents a unique identification number. Each document has a “permalink” based on its unique ID, which lets people retrieve the document regardless of where it is within a SharePoint deployment.
  • Managed Metadata Service

    Managed Metadata Services in SharePoint 2010 which allows businesses to centrally manage metadata and share it anywhere in the farm.

Record Management - Store once, use many

SharePoint 2010 broadens the scope of records management by delivery core capabilities across the entire SharePoint platform. As a result, users can declare all content within SharePoint as records, and companies can manage a central records archive or support in-place records management.

Rich Media Management

SharePoint 2010 includes enhanced management and presentation of multimedia content including Asset Libraries and the Media Player Web Part.

Improved Web Analytics

SharePoint 2010 delivers improved Web Analytics, providing details reports on user activity, content inventory, and search use.

SharePoint Search

SharePoint Search capabilities are delivered through two server products:
  • SharePoint Server 2010 – delivers out-of-the-box intranet and people search. SharePoint makes it easy to find content by combining relevance, refinement, mining, discovering (Manual or automatically generate list of colleagues mined from Microsoft Outlook) and social behavior in the search experience.
  • FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint – offers a new choice in enterprise search. It delivers an exceptional intranet, people search, visual search experience and a platform for building custom, search-driven applications.
