A solution is a comprehensive package of tools, processes and procedures that can be used to develop, deploy, and maintain a software application. With the rise in cloud computing, the use of SharePoint has increased significantly as a way to create and manage content. For this reason, a SharePoint development team is an important asset for any organization.

SharePoint development solutions are web applications that help you create and maintain SharePoint sites. These solutions can be either SharePoint-specific or general purpose. SharePoint-specific solutions can be created using any programming language, but the majority of developers use Visual Studio as their IDE.
