The heavy integration of Microsoft Office 2010 is one of the main benefits of using SharePoint 2010. There are a myriad of ways to connect SharePoint 2010 to Microsoft Office 2010, whether it is connecting a SharePoint 2010 document library to Microsoft Outlook, linking an Access database or an Excel spreadsheet to a list in SharePoint 2010, using Microsoft InfoPath to build SharePoint 2010 lists, publishing a Visio diagram to be displayed in the web, or managing Microsoft PowerPoint slides in a SharePoint 2010 slide library.
