PEOPLE-CENTRICITY

The people-centric model in SharePoint 2010 begins with the user profile store, formally named the User Profile Service Application (UPA). The core of any social application is the user profile. User profiles allow searching for and connecting to colleagues, in addition to leveraging existing organizational relationships and knowledge. The more you know about your users, the more (cool) things you can do with your software. Of course, today this includes enabling the types of social computing features and social connections users have embraced using the Internet.

User Profile Service Application

You manage user profiles, connections to directories, imports, and settings using the UPA as shown in Figure 5-1. Like many of the services available in SharePoint, the architecture uses a service model. A farm administrator must grant you permissions before you can access the UPA through Central Administration (CA).
