Why would a company or organization choose to use Sametime? They might choose Sametime because it closely integrates with their existing collaboration environment—IBM Lotus Notes and Domino, Lotus Quickr, or IBM Connections. They may also choose a real-time collaboration system such as Sametime to save money. Online meetings and instant messaging helps save money by eliminating the need for travel costs and long distance phone expenditures, especially if a company integrates Sametime with their existing Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) system.

SharePoint 2010 uses InfoPath 2010 to create rich, powerful electronic forms. InfoPath forms can replace the default forms used for SharePoint lists or act as custom forms that provide the user interface and business rules required to run a custom business process.
When automating business processes, we automatically think of workflow. SharePoint 2010 supports many different workflow and task-management scenarios. There are a number of out of the box workflows that can be used to perform tasks such as to requesting feedback or approval for a document. Where these workflows don't suffice, they can be copied, modified, and extended, or completely new custom workflows can be constructed. These custom workflows can perform a range of custom actions, allocate tasks to users, or automate an end-to-end business process as required.
In this article written by Dr Adrian Colquhoun, author of Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Power User Cookbook, we will cover:
- Creating an InfoPath form for a SharePoint list
- Using the Collect Feedback workflow to receive feedback on a Microsoft Word 2010 document

A Query is a question you pose to the database so as to retrieve a specific piece of information in the database. The querying in LightSwitch can be best understood by looking at how it is structured. Querying in LightSwitch can be carried out using the built-in Query Designer but more advanced querying can be carried out using code.
This article by Jayaram Krishnaswamy, author of Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch Business Application Development, describes the use of the built-in Query Designer in the IDE to query the entities in the data sources.Read Microsoft LightSwitch: Querying Multiple Entities in full
The logic tier of LightSwitch basically starts with a data service that encapsulates all the access to the data source. This tier can host any number of data services exposed as endpoints at the service boundary. Each data service exposes a number of queryable entity sets with operations for querying entities and an operation for submitting changes; add, update, and delete. An entity set contains entities of the same entity type. All operations take place with entity sets whether they are intended for fetching or for making changes to them. If you think of an entity set as an analogue of SQL table you will not be wrong. Just like you take information out of the table, make changes to it and return it to the table, you do likewise with entity sets.
In this article by Jayaram Krishnaswamy, author of Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch Business Application Development, we will take a look at querying a single entity.Read Microsoft LightSwitch: Querying and Filtering Data in full
