I am new to sharepoint and dont have any experience with it and I need to learn how to impliment a sharpoint template applicatation which is prebuilt by microsoft.

Such as these here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsserver/sharepoint/bb407292


My company currently has share point services 2.0 which is the free open source version i beleive and they are open to purchasing a licensed version of sharpoint 2007 or sharepoint 2010 if necesary.

I am just unsure what i need at this point and I am looking for some guidance.

Whats needed for the project I need to impliment is a Client location Documentation DB which is web based and will allow for browsers and smart phone/ tablet pc access to it.

It needs to keep track of:
Company name
Address
POC phone & email
physical hardware at a clients location including usernames and passwords and IP addresses, Serial Numbers, ect.
Virtual Machines at a clients location including usernames and passwords and IP addresses, Serial Numbers, ect.
and we need to be able to customize the forms to include other fields if necesary.

We would also need the ability to list all this information on one document so we could print it out.

I guess another part to this question is are there pre existing templates provided by microsoft that already have this format or something similiar to it?

I appreciate your time and guidance. thanks

According to this page:

There is no templates for sharepoint 2010 - so that means I should go with sharepoint 2007 right?

So far your requirements don't point to the need of the application templates. You could use a custom list(s), or even a simple document library, depending on how you wanted to go about it.

Your requirements do strongly point out the need for security. SharePoint 2010 is the most secure version of the platform.

You need to make sure you isolate your information, and secure it so only the appropriate parties have access.

You should use SSL to protect the data as it is transfered across the network.

If storing the information in documents, you should also consider Information Rights Management, so that the critical pieces of information regarding your clients are not accidently or intentionally leaked to non-related parties.
