Understanding Workflow in Windows SharePoint Services and the 2007 Microsoft Office System


I have been working with David Chappell recently and he has written a nice whitepaper that describes how workflow can be used in Windows SharePoint Services and the 2007 Microsoft Office System. It does a good job of describing the various technology components that can be used for workflow development in SharePoint and Office.


Understanding Workflow in Windows SharePoint Services and the 2007 Microsoft Office System. (5Mb Word Format)


The content covers the value of human workflow, a primer on workflow and SharePoint, a description of workflow in Windows SharePoint Services and then for Office SharePoint Server, and finally a comparison describing how to choose between Windows SharePoint Service and Office SharePoint Server.


If you are building on Windows Workflow Foundation but don't yet have a host application for your workflows SharePoint may be the answer for you.
