Real World Examples (MS Case Studies)
The other day my friend wanted some real world examples of SharePoint being used to help support an initiative he has going, where he wants to push Microsoft and specifically SharePoint in his organization.
Microsoft has been releasing Case Studies for ages on SharePoint which provide real world application examples for how SharePoint provided business value and solved real business problems. You can find them here: http://www.microsoft.com/casestudies/search.aspx?ProTaxID=1902
These are terrific examples of real world scenarios where SharePoint has been used. If you are a University and looking at SharePoint or new technologies to support your students look at the latest Case Study from the Washington State University: http://www.microsoft.com/casestudies/casestudy.aspx?casestudyid=4000002509, if you are a different business just take a look, and I bet out of the 200 case studies one of them can help shed some light on how SharePoint can help.
Hope this helps someone in their review/push for SharePoint work in the future,
