The Microsoft SharePoint
™ hosting service provides "out of box" collaborative and document management functionality to the customers of BCCS. SharePoint allows for the presentation and sharing of business critical information in one central location via a web interface and provides for ease of work collaboration across the organization.
The BCCS SharePoint hosting service includes "out of box" Standard features as well as Enterprise and Custom functionality. SharePoint also includes portal capabilities allowing different web page content to be displayed according to who you are and what your interests might be.
For example, in a simple SharePoint "out of box" work team collaboration each person on the team may have a library of shared documents, another area where they are collectively editing and updating documents, an area for announcements and possibly a calendar of team events.
A more complex SharePoint presentation may allow a private citizen to log into an external SharePoint site and, based upon who they are, see a set of applications of interest from multiple State agencies. The application set could potentially include such things as medical assistance, filing taxes online, State licensing programs, or links into legislative activity among other things.
State agencies, boards, commissions and other qualifying governmental entities can request BCCS SharePoint hosting.
