The Self Provisioning Portal (SPP) is a project resulting from a collaborative effort between Mint and Microsoft. It was built on the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) platform. Essentially, it is a portal framework that allows end users to create a site of their own that they then maintain at their leisure, via user friendly interfaces and templates. Basic template pages are provides (such as home, about us, contact us), and the user has the option to create as many pages as required.

As it runs on the MOSS platform, it is a robust solution that can manage large-scale deployments and also harness the power of SharePoint through search, aggregation of content, multiple language support etc. We have included deployment documentation, as well as advice on how to scale this solution out.

NOTE: Although it is just a start, we hope that you find this code useful. We also request that you upload new features that you have developed for this platform, so that we can build this solution out with more useful features. What would also be useful for us will be to understand the scenarios in which you have implemented this solution. Please use the discussion pages to update us on this, thanks.
