The core target of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS 2007) is to aggregate disparate (Different but separate applications) information, events, processes and enterprise services into a unified single view without to open multiple applications and cut and paste information across multiple screens.

In MOSS 2007 these composite applications are based on the concept of a service-oriented architecture (SOA).

MOSS 2007 framework helps you develop components as distributed, reusable business services. MOSS 2007 split into small applications in small pieces.

MOSS 2007 is basically superstructure who represents the high-level integration of users, one-stop shop form information, managing interactions between people, and line-of-business (LOB) data within organization and cross enterprises.
MOSS 2007 based on SOA framework that is driven by standard XML/ Web services.

It provides a window that connects people, processes, and information to create a unique & rich end user experience. For example, during a natural disaster, it can provide critical information to coordinate a response effort, monitoring traffic patterns, delivering supplies, dispatching resources, and aggregating information to present operational insight. In a manufacturing setting, you might use it to monitor inventory levels and assembly processes up and down a supply chain.
It’s an excellent aggregation point for all of these types of situations.

MOSS 2007 is point of collaboration & contents sharing.
For example, SharePoint Portal includes workspace to help loan officers find, organize, and share information so they can process loans more efficiently. These workspaces used to be very limited in their reach, which resulted in a proliferation of mediums to support discrete processes.

A mortgage broker might use a file system to store documents, e-mail to deliver loan applications to customers, a Web site to gather additional customer information, and a spreadsheet to monitor the loan approval process.

MOSS 2007 can unify all these tasks and offer collaboration tools to streamline the loan approval workflow. Loan officers will then have a single place to access and modify documents, check documents in and out of a repository, and work collaboratively to process loans, all without having to use multiple interface mechanisms.

So, MOSS 2007 become more process-centric, they serve as clearinghouses for managing multiple activities in multiple manners.
