For the most part, this is a great software solution for the average user. For consulting it's ok, but [there aren't] that many reach features.

MS SharePoint

You are working on a project plan with two other teams (5 staff total) and you need to all work from the same document (edit and review) and have access to other resources. MS SharePoint would have a folder for the projects where all the staff can easily access the various content pieces. Less appropriate: You need to edit a video file or some other creative materials collaboratively (i.e. I do not think "editing" PDFs or Adobe Creative Files is easy. In these cases, I've still needed to download the files to my local machine, work on them, and then re-upload them to SharePoint).

Pros

Cisco Webex Social (Discontinued)

  • Easy to use.
  • No special setup.
  • Doesn't require any special hardware.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

MS SharePoint

  • Permission management: This is super relevant and wonderful for controlling what your audience can see and do, for example, when you need someone to constantly see changes to a "living document" but not have the ability to intervene in the process.
  • Contact groups: I find it super good since not necessarily the site administrators are the only ones who can manage the group, you can make any member of the group can manage the rest of the members without this being involved in other site settings. Also when granting permissions, distributing documents, announcements, tasks, it is very easy to do it by group of contacts than one by one.
  • Version history: We know that we are exposed to errors and accidents, so having the previous versions of a document, being able to see who has modified and having the possibility of restoring any of those versions can save the day. I always feel that I am protected and that is why I always promote working in the cloud.
  • Integration with other MS tools: The workflows that connect outlook, sharepoint, onedrive, among others, where you can manage multiple actions for all these tools seems wonderful to me, it allows a super necessary and simple expansion to be able to automate tasks that used to be performed manually on a daily basis, it certainly contributes to efficiency.

Cons

Cisco Webex Social (Discontinued)

  • Recording feature cannot record phone sound just computer sound.
  • Recording feature does not generate a file with "known" extension, it needs specific player.

MS SharePoint

  • Managing access permissions is still clunky - not a whole lot better in newer versions than it was way back when it was first launched.
  • Re-organization of the site hierarchy isn't very easy. You need a third-party tool to do anything meaningful when you want to rearrange your site pages and move site libraries.
  • It doesn't provide for any kind of backup, so you have to either have it on=prem where you can backup the entire server or you have to buy a third-party tool if you are using the online hosted version (SPO).

It's integral to our business. It's already included with most of the Office 365 licensing we buy, so the cost is effectively zero. It stores our files, it is the foundation for custom applications, and Microsoft only continues to enhance its functionality and its connections to other Microsoft tools. SharePoint just keeps getting better and better.

No usability issues reported. Individual teams also have allocated areas which replace legacy shared drives on local LANs. Access to Sharepoint resources is fully integrated with corporate Active Directory with additional two-factor authentication required for administrative users. Users have access to Microsoft Services Hub which allows you to create, manage, and track support requests while staying current on Microsoft technologies with access to select self-paced learning paths

Support for SharePoint is quite good. Microsoft provides good support. Microsoft offers
  • Quick turnaround time for issues
  • A range of support services
  • Access to a network of resources
  • Escalation of issues
  • Ongoing development and commitment to produce enhancement
The majority of support is required for initial installation. Once complete and the system is operating we have had very few support issues.

The face to face training I received was on SharePoint Administration. It was rushed as there was a lot of information to cover and the application of the labs weren't that great either. I like to be able to relate what I am learning to what I am currently doing.

I like to learn at my own pace and online training allows for that. Additionally, you can skip through pieces of content that you already know or are already comfortable with. Microsoft actually offers great videos on their website for basic fundamental SharePoint Training. I have used these training videos in some of my own training sessions with end users.

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

It is simpler to use compared to other tools. Microsoft has a great product but there are a lot of bugs. And compared to GoToMeeting it has more features.

I have been burned by just one year of using MS, from performance/reliability issues to non-intuitive UI's that I can't name an aspect or functionality that I'd rate SharePoint as doing better than the Google Suite (and Google Sites, specifically). SharePoint needs a total rebuild to be a viable product, or maybe they'll launch their own, less awful product to replace it like they did with Microsoft Edge to replace Internet Explorer.

MS SharePoint

  • It has democratized collaboration - giving power at the point of use.
  • It has allowed us as a regulated industry to be compliant.
  • It has allowed us to share information from a central point rather than just bouncing emails and storing files on desktops.
  • It has allowed us to automate business processes.
