In August last year, Microsoft introduced some 33 Application Templates for Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. Since then the number of downloads have been very high proving that there is a big interest in the user community for this type of standardized functionality.
These templates are a great help for Microsoft customers and partners to experience the business value of SharePoint sites. They are very easy to apply for the creation of a context-rich site related to a specific task, job or event. Currently 33 different templates are available.
