We are living in an Online arena where creativity and innovation is on peak to develop new synergies according to current business requirements. Various integrated and collaborative solutions are available in market to customize enterprise needs. In this lineage of new advents, Microsoft SharePoint 2010 makes it easier for people to work together. By using shared services people can set up Web sites to share information with others, manage documents and repositories from start to finish, and publish reports to help everyone to make better decisions and manage dynamic dashboards.
According to my experiences both managerial and technical, I would termed Sharepoint as best technology for intranet and extranet. MOSS (Microsoft Office Sharepoint) 2010 provides the business collaboration platform for developers to rapidly deliver solutions using integrated tools and techniques while leveraging a rich set of features. 
Setting up collaboration platform for business engagements and integrating innovative solutions to bring creativity to boost effective communication
Unlike, MOSS 2007,  SP 2010 is powerful and has got new capabilities which makes it a self contained application framework and Microsoft has added some advanced collaboration and Search features which makes the web portal more demanding for target audience.  It has inherited a lot from Office 2007. It has a ribbon bar at the top like we have in Office 2007, to perform common tasks related to Site Pages andr data. It provides set of user-friendly functionalities than SharePoint 2007 and can perform much more centralize tasks in terms of integration and technical management also equipped to use external data than SharePoint 2007. Microsoft Visual Studio® 2010 and Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010 can help enhance developer productivity, and Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server delivers support for application lifecycle management.
