Today Microsoft is releasing 30 Applications for Windows SharePoint Services that consist of 100% out-of-box WSS functionality and have been tailored to meet the needs of specific tasks or business processes. Example scenarios span different horizontal roles such as sales, marketing, HR, finance and operations as well as different verticals such as financial services, media, professional services and government. Each application was built based on customer feedback and was designed to help end users collaborate more effectively in their day-to-day work. The applications are available today as a free download from http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/sppt/wssapps/default.mspx and include a link to an end user walk through that provides basic Windows SharePoint Services usage guidance. All 30 of the applications are also fully extensible and can be further customized as needed.
