“If your team is excited about the new capabilities of the platform, as many are, this one time division of labor can pay off with big dividends. Often, the time saved in the future with modern tools provided by SharePoint 2010 can be a great reward when you’ve become frustrated with the technology you’ve been using for a long time to update your old site.”
