SharePoint Center of Excellence

The SharePoint Center of Excellence (CoE) was created to enable Purdue University to focus on their business goals, helping create solutions that utilize SharePoint and building knowledge and experience with the confidence and support of our team.
Part of the broader oversight structure to collaborate with the SharePoint Governance Committees to ensure that the SharePoint environment delivers worthwhile content to its users in an effective way.

What is SharePoint?

Microsoft SharePoint is a collaboration platform that allows multiple users to share documents, exchange ideas, and work together for a variety of common goals.
As the name suggests, it’s a centralized location that is used to share information. You can think of SharePoint as a virtual office comprised of meeting rooms, a library, specialized team work rooms, and reference libraries.
Purdue’s SharePoint portal enables the creation, management, and sharing of document assets across the West Lafayette and North Central campuses. Through workflow capabilities and its application development foundation, the portal supports the University’s information management needs and provides a business process framework for all business and academic units.
