We have an Intranet that we've developed internally...not a great piece of work but functional.  The site needs to be completely redesigned in terms of aesthetics and functionality.  I would like to use software that would ease the web programming side, maybe have some templates, etc...something relatively easy to set up and maintain.  We will be much more focused on SQL Server over the next few months and will redevelop much of the current Intranet functionality using .net and SQL Server.  Any comments on how SharePoint might fit into this picture?  Are there better tools out there?

Thanks.

sharepoint, in my opinion, is a great tool for collaboration and information distribution to teams and non-standard groups or entities (i.e., not departments).  Since the navigation features in Sharepoint are limited, and that users can create new sites and that you have no control over actual site structure - I would recommend using sharepoint as a team collaboration site, or as a repository for commonly accessed information (i.e., a shared network drive).  Sharepoint gives you the ability to subscribe to documents, etc, so when a document is updated it can send you an email letting you know (something you can't do on a network drive).

That said, I would recommend looking at .netNuke or some other IBuySpy portal derivative as your intranet, then provide links to structured storage areas in Sharepoint when appropriate.
