One of the new features in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 is a three-tier administrative model that centralizes configuration and management tasks, enables administrative roles to be differentiated, and administration to be delegated and assigned to the appropriate people in your organization. The enhancements in the administrative model can help IT organizations perform administrative tasks more efficiently and effectively. You can use the administrative model and SharePoint groups to give only the permissions that are necessary to perform specific tasks based on specific roles in your organization. To more effectively work within the three-tier administrative model, many organizations designate specific administrative roles within each tier. This article discusses administrative roles within each tier that you can use to help administer your solution.
