So far, this book has detailed how to install and manage Microsoft SharePoint 2010 sites as well as how to add unique content to pages. Using previous chapters, specifically Chapter 6, Chapter 10 and Chapter 14, you should now be able to see how you can create and customize SharePoint 2010 solutions to meet your business needs.

However, when you build a SharePoint 2010 solution, it should be more than a collection of lists, libraries, pages, and workflows. Each of these components should be combined to provide users with a holistic solution, in which the components work together and not as discrete entities. Using Web Part connections and customizing the Data Form Web Part (DFWP) Form Action button to initiate workflows are just two examples of how you can achieve this. But SharePoint 2010 provides other components that you can use to improve user experience (UX).
