Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 is a secure, web-browser-accessible, collaborative system that enables users to create web pages in an organized hierarchy to share information and document collaboration regardless of physical location or time of day. In addition to departmental sites, SharePoint 2010 offers individual My Sites, a Facebook-like personal website.
Departmental Sites: There is a space usage charge of $1.75 per 50 MB per month, with a 50 MB minimum. Consulting is also available at the rate of $61 per hour.
This service is only available to departments. Use MyServices to obtain new SharePoint service, modify existing SharePoint service options, or cancel service. Contact your Departmental IT Pro or call (573)882-5000 for more information.
