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.

For me it is the most cost effective solution to a number of separate products which would otherwise require not only the procurement of a number of individual products, but also;
- Separate agreements
- Separate infrastructures
- separate Support
- Separate Logons potentially
- Incoherent search across all systems, if one was available
- Separate renewal, upgrade, patching etc.

A lot of users can give you many great ideas how to cleverly use SharePoint's core functionality to implement almost any process you need. It is very sturdy, never crashes. Many applications and third party solutions are built for SharePoint so even customization without Microsoft programming skills is rather easy and low cost.

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!

Obviously we still use our CMS to manage our main websites but with SharePoint we no longer have to rely on one or two key employees to post the work that many have done. We also now have a central location for all of these files to be viewed and posted once they are made public. The idea here is that we can pool resources together and not have to worry if the one person who knows CMS is on sick leave, or even worse, permanent leave to get the work completed
Collaboration and Sharing
Based on 1 answer
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.
