In times when business volatility is on the rise and time-to-market is key, SharePoint 2010 enables all users -- IT pros, developers, business decision makers and technical decision makers -- to customize the out-of-box platform and deploy solutions according to specific business needs quickly and effectively.

If you’re a developer, Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 gives you a complete set of project templates, designers and packaging tools for SharePoint 2010 solutions. Plus, you can install SharePoint 2010 on Microsoft Windows 7, making it easier than ever to develop SharePoint applications.

 IT professionals will benefit from improved productivity and lower training expenses.  SharePoint 2010 makes it easy to find and fix potential problems across all of the servers with SharePoint Health Analyzer. This unique feature can automatically fix many common configuration and performance problems automatically.

As an everyday user, I like to think of SharePoint 2010 as the brain of my work life– it stores information and makes content easy to locate. It better connects me to my community of colleagues through dynamic social features, where I bounce off ideas, ask questions and enjoy instant feedback.  Plus, I never have to worry about version control or backing up files since everything is automatically updated and centrally stored.
