Acquia

Acquia is well-suited for any Drupal web platform. I think it best plays in the enterprise space, either for B2B or nonprofit/higher ed/government. Acquia is a great solution for smaller web platforms, as well, but the price is typically prohibitive in these scenarios.

MS SharePoint

MS SharePoint is well suited for organizations that have staff who work remotely as well as those with physical offices. It allows them the capability to access all the necessary programs in one place. The only setback is that not all programs mirror the original program which may cause some frustration.

Pros

  • Deployment management is user friendly and developer extensible.
  • Rudimentary monitoring and logging is user friendly and accessible.
  • The Acquia team is on top of emerging threats, and where possible, silently mitigates the worst of them.

  • It allows our staff to access important documents without connecting to the VPN or our network.
  • The uploading process on the back end is very user-friendly and simple.
  • The ability to consolidate the many programs of MS is amazingly useful. I can access my calendar, Outlook, documents I was working on all in one place!

Cons

  • Not much
  • Send us free candy
  • Continue doing what they are doing

  • Excel documents can sometimes be problematic with some users to open from SharePoint.
  • Adding an OCR engine for multifunctional printers, as opposed to using third party products. Especially now that devices can scan directly to SharePoint these days.

Acquia makes Drupal better and contributes significantly to the development of the project. The people are great and we are happy to be a partner

It a nutshell, it works. It meet ours requirements and does a pretty good job at it. Although it is expensive, it does offer our organization enterprise level tools in one location. SharePoint is a very popular solution and most people that are familiar with MS Office (later versions) should have no trouble adapting to its use

SharePoint is easy to use for basic tasks. If you're trying to do something a bit more complicated, though, it can be difficult to figure it out on your own without going through a lot of trial and error. Most people will likely only be performing basic tasks, though, so I would rate the usability pretty high.

Support varies by tech and by vendor. I've used Microsoft's support channel and for the most part have been successful to get my questions answered. I've also used third party vendors and have gotten some answers resolved as well, though sometimes getting them on the phone is difficult. It all depends!

Planning to the last detail would be advised. SharePoint is a very large application that takes a lot of finesse to get operational

Alternatives Considered

Acquia offers a more robust product suite than Pantheon. Acquia also offers professional services for another level beyond what Pantheon offers. Acquia pricing is typically more expensive than Pantheon, but the extra cost tends to be worth it, given all the support you receive from Acquia's team.

DropBox is a nice application for document sharing but does not have many of the features such as workflows. With SharePoint you can send approval workflows for individuals files that are uploaded by the users.Both Blogger and WordPress are nice quick out of the box solutions, but is not as scalable as SharePoint is. With SharePoint for example you can create webparts, workflows, document level security where with the previous other solutions would be harder and more expensive to implement.In summary SharePoint provides a company with the ability to better adapt to ever changing business needs than the other ones.

It is extremely simple to share, within our department and even with other departments, things we have been working on. Formatting is not an issue when we are sharing and that is a big life saver.

It’s extremely simple to merge forms from different platforms to different types of sources! There is no lag so that is a huge help when you are in a hurry and have no time to spare.

Return on Investment

  • Reduced time managing infrastructure.
Bret Peters profile photo
  • Single Version of the Truth - By far, the most significant impact is the ability to store and retrieve multiple content types using a common interface. When an executive needs the most recent version of a proposal for the board and there's only one place to get the content, it makes life so much simpler and productive.
