Benefits of WSS v3
SharePoint Hosting site members can find and communicate with key contacts and experts, both by email and instant messaging. Site content can be easily searched, and users can receive alerts telling them when existing documents and information have changed or 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.
Microsft Office Integration
A Dedicated WSS v3 Server can easily share SharePoint site content with MS Office programs. All of a site's collaborative content - documents, lists, events, task assignments, and membership rosters - can be read and edited within Microsoft Outlook powered by a Hosted Exchange Server, Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Microsoft® Outlook also allows SharePoint site event calendars and task lists to be viewed side-by-side with personal calendars. It even creates meeting-specific workspaces to augment group appointments.
ASP.NET Development API
In addition to the Web Part infrastructure, Windows SharePoint Services servers, sites, and site contents are exposed by a comprehensive Windows .NET - based object model and industry-standard Web services. Site customization and enhanced data-driven site content is possible, even to non-programmers, by using SharePoint Designer
Shared Workspace Community
SharePoint Hosting services provide sites with places to capture and share ideas, information, communication, and 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.
Complete Business Process Management (BPM)
Hosted SharePoint site administrators can customize the content and layout of sites to ensure that site members can access and work with important and relevant information. Member participation can also be monitored and moderated when necessary. Security and task responsibilities are both flexible and easily accessible.
Windows SharePoint Services Hosting can scale to thousands of sub-sites within an organization.
It fully supports load-balanced Web farm and clustered SQL database deployments. For site and server managers, quotas can be set and enforced not only on storage, but on sites per-server and users per-site. Site usage can be monitored to detect and retire inactive sites. Detailed security options are available and easily managed. Server managers can delegate to end users the ability to create their own sites. Sites and servers can be managed from a Web browser, command-line tools, or a Web service-accessible object model.
