Right now, we use SharePoint 2007 for collaboration and as an application platform - can you help me build a business case to sell to my boss for why we should upgrade? What are the key differences in 2010 that would help SharePoint better serve us?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Managed metadata, better search, better disaster recovery, persistent links to files, more robust architecture and 64 bit hardware that you can amortize as a capital expense over time to start. Best business case though is a specific example or projecft that would be very expensive if you did a competitive analysis but which expense covers the cost of upgrade.

My .02 cents

    A new feature called Web edit allows administrators to edit their sites almost as if they were typical Office documents - which makes it easier to carry out common editing tasks like uploading, changing images or editing text. If your company uses Visio, you could push the fact that you can read Visio documents in SharePoint 2010.
