This topic provides information about the internal architecture of Enterprise Search, as well as Enterprise Search (ES) as a shared service, ES provides extensive and extensible content gathering, indexing, and querying. This service supports full-text searching using a Structured Query Language (SQL-based) query syntax, and provides a new keyword syntax to support keyword searches. Enterprise Search uses the same underlying Search service as Search in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services (read also all this infos on this subjectby Joel's blog) .

OBA RAP (Office Business Application Reference Application Pack)

OBA Reference Application Pack for Supply Chain Management: OBA RAP (Office Business Application Reference Application Pack)
"Globalization, specialization and outsourcing are changing the way we work. Global information workers need to collaborate in a way that is seamless, synchronized and secure. Microsoft’s 2007 Office System provides a platform for building composite solutions, called Office Business Applications (OBAs), designed to support cross-functional processes and allow information workers to collaborate. Assembled from a company’s current collection of information assets, OBAs allow global information workers to gain insight, collaborate, make decisions, and take action -- as we move from a transactional world to a collaborative one, our tools must also change.

SharePoint 2007 B2TR: Using a Custom Data Source for Navigation

Steven Van de Craen's Blog : SharePoint 2007 B2TR: Using a Custom Data Source for Navigation: "I'm currently implementing a custom data source for my SharePoint 2007 Collaboration Portal. You can find a pre-release topic about this on MSDN here. Unfortunately this topic is not compatible with Beta 2 Technical Refresh so here are the updated instructions.

Instructions for Beta 2 Technical Refresh.
Create a folder MyCustomNavigation under C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\"... For a production server it is recommended to sign the assembly with a strong name and registering it in the Global Assembly Cache. Don't forget to update the web.config in that case !

Upgrading from SPS 2003 to MOSS 2007 Beta2 TR using the gradual approach

The SharePoint Farmer's Almanac : Upgrading from SPS 2003 to MOSS 2007 Beta2 TR using the gradual approach: Warning – I have been very hesitant to post these directions. Why? Because they make it seem very simple to upgrade from 2003 to 2007. Thanks : Shane for this article!

While at the core it can be an easy process in reality there is a lot of planning and decision making you need to do before you ever sit down with this guide.

In class it is taking me hours of lecture just to present all of the options and reasoning to the students. How much time have you spent planning to this point? Here is a quick list of some of the topics we cover.
Great Comment :
Yes it works, great! In upgraded a SharePoint 2003 portal to 2007 with this guide. My test evironment contains only 2 sites, one english teamsite and one meeting site in Dutch language. After migrating only the english teamsite is working, the dutch meeting site doesnt work. Wil this upgrade only work voor ID1033 sites? Thanks in advance, From : Jabalili

Can Microsoft Dominate the Portal Market?


Aberdeen Observations and Conclusions - by : http://www.aberdeen.com/
Microsoft has a major advantage in that the average user is already familiar with its desktop applications; thus, exposing documents and data to SharePoint’s collaborative environment becomes a relatively simple function which can be performed by the end-user from within the application itself.

While the IT department may argue that SharePoint’s feature-set is somewhat limited compared with some of its rivals and cite lack of J2EE compliance as a major shortcoming, the end-user community within the organization usually can’t wait for an enterprise-wide initiative when the task at hand appears to be straightforward.

By the time IT has a solution, there are already so many Microsoft-based portals in the organization, they cannot help but embrace the technology.

This strategy is made stronger by the fact that SharePoint can be sold into a company which is dominated by a competitor’s application suite.

Even though the likes of Oracle and SAP have portal solutions, a company that is heavily invested in their technology may still find itself compelled to use the SharePoint platform for outward-facing collaboration. The reverse is generally not true.

The only serious competitor using a "grassroots" adoption strategy is JBoss which, by virtue of its unbeatably low price point, could grab market share as companies continue to embrace the open source model more broadly.

However, with its upcoming release of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, Microsoft demonstrates its commitment to continue to add functionality and to embrace open standards.
Microsoft is positioned to dominate.

Great news for US, and all the user of MOSS ( you can read all the text format PDF )
