That's an interesting question.

Sharepoint is in general terms a collaboration tool.  It has many different facets all of which centring around collaboration, work flows and integration.

It's also for the most part template driven so there is no need to "develop" to use the basic products.

Have a look at: http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/en-us/product/Pages/Features.aspx for an overview of the features and available workspaces.

Well SharePoint Services is a framework and SharePoint Server an enterprise implementation of that framework.   Here is how my current employer is (and will) use SharePoint 2010

- Enterprise Search
- Social Networking (via Profiles and specialized sites)
- Personalized Sites (My Sites, Blogs)
- Document Management
- Records Management (document management with integration into other data sources)
- Business Intelligence (dashboards, reporting, ...)
- Project Management (using custom lists, Excel and Visio services)
- Process Management (using workflows in a variety of custom lists along with custom components)
- Operations Management (with combinations of the previous)
- Electronic Communication Alternatives/Enhancements to Email; RSS Feeds, Alerts, Forums, InfoPath forms
- Group and Team sites

Collaboration is only a small part of how we use it because we use SharePoint to interact with staff based on RACI matrixes.  (Responsibility, Accountability, Consult and Inform) so collaboration is only part of the Consult portion of a RACI matrix.  Many sites are about knowledge share but that doesn't mean collaboration.  HR shares many documents but they don't collaborate with anyone except a few executives to prepare content.

Every business unit and group will or is using SharePoint.
