U.S. Army Special Operations Command Begins Training on SharePoint 2003

The U.S. Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) located at Fort Bragg, N.C. has begun a five-week training regimen as part of its plans to implement SharePoint Portal Server 2003. SharePoint Solutions was selected as the provider of this training.

USASOC believes that the Command will recognize signficant benefits from SharePoint Portal Server and Windows SharePoint Services. Key objectives include providing a central place where personnel can go to find USASOC news and documents and providing an environment that empowers the end user to author and publish their own content without the assistance of a webmaster.

Approximately 60 management and development personnel will receive the training in Fayetteville, NC. USASOC plans to implement the new portal in 2005. When fully deployed, the SharePoint portal will be used by approximately 20,000 end users.
