Site and solution governance (SharePoint Server 2010)


Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010

This section provides information about governing sites and solutions for both production and sandboxed Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 environments.

Governance is the set of policies, roles, responsibilities, and processes that guide, direct, and control how an organization's business divisions and IT teams cooperate to achieve business goals.

Sandboxed solutions restrict access to network and local resources to provide greater security and stability.
