From a client application perspective, InfoPath was my superhero in the Office 2003 System. It allowed me to create many awesome business applications that improved the management of my team, our sales process, and most importantly our relationships with our customers. Most importantly however it was also an application that allowed me to be a superhero to some of our clients because I was also able to solve many of their information management problems with InfoPath forms coupled with SharePoint.
2007 is my new favorite number!
