Top 17 case studies for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and several new MOSS-based web sites

I saw this post on the Sharepoint team blog. It is really useful for knowing business and business needs.

   If you’re looking for MOSS-based Internet web sites, here’s a fairly comprehensive list though more sites seem to be popping up every week. Listed below are some of my recent favorites:

  • Glu: Heavily customized and branded portal for mobile gamers. A “how we did it” guest blog entry from the project team will be forthcoming.
  • SendTec: Corporate web site for a multi-channel marketing company. Looks nothing like a typical SharePoint site, and they even used a custom HTTP handler to hide the ‘/pages’ folder structure.
  • Wise Woman: A community portal for women created by The Body Shop. The site is WCAG 1.0 AA complaint, which busts the myth that MOSS-based sites cannot be compliant with accessibility standards.
  • Plymouth Hospitals: Corporate web site for a healthcare provider in the UK. The site is also WCAG 1.0 AA compliant and even provides color contrast and font size options for the visually impaired.
  • MyTalk AU: A community portal for a group of radio and TV stations in Australia. The site was migrated from Telligent’s Community Server (no offense to Telligent, who is a Microsoft ISV Partner, but the customer wanted better web content management capabilities along with community features in the same solution) and busts the other big myth about MOSS, which is that it cannot be used to implement Web 2.0 oriented solutions. A “how we did it” guest blog entry from the project team will also be forthcoming.
  • Direct Energy: Corporate web site for one of North America’s leading integrated energy companies. The site uses MOSS’s Site Variations capability to implement English and Spanish versions of the content.
  • PD NET: Large professional traning and e-commerce site with lots of content in English and French, enabled by MOSS’s Site Variations capability.
