MOSS 2007 comes in both Standard and Enterprise Editions. Based on the needs we can choose to implement Standard Edition and upgrade to Enterprise Edition at a later time, or
immediately implement Enterprise Edition with all of its additional features.
Although there are many small differences between the two editions, the following are
the significant features included in Enterprise Edition but not in Standard Edition:
This feature provides access to Excel spreadsheets through a web browser and
offloads the calculations to the server. It makes only specific areas of the spreadsheet
visible to users, and ensures that there is “one version of the truth,” since
only specified users can modify the underlying data.
This is a site provided out of the box that has been designed to simplify the management
of reports and data connections.
Business Data Catalog
This feature is a simplified way to bring data from external sources into Share-
Point without costly custom development. With it, users do not need to access
multiple systems to view the data they need—it is all available from one common
interface provided by MOSS.
Business Data Search
This feature allows users to search data that has been stored in separate systems
exposed through MOSS (such as those connected via the Business Data Catalog).
You can create forms within Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007 and publish them to
SharePoint using Forms Services, allowing users without the InfoPath client to
complete forms entirely through their web browsers.
