MS SharePoint / SQL

MS SharePoint works well when a business wants to get rid of their antiquated intranet and upgrade to a robust experience like SharePoint. With so many workflows and options, it can get extremely complex, so be weary that once all the departments know of this product, they are going to want to have it for their department collaboration and workflow service

This was a long-term buy-in from a corporate perspective, to remain in the SharePoint space. Migration is certainly possible, which is good for planning and having options further out. At this point, the only planned migration is to eventually move the architecture up to SharePoint/SQL 2013. At that point, we will be able to leverage some greater efficiencies, some enhanced content design and management features, and some more current social features. It is well worth a full consideration in any shop looking at a new implementation of or migration to SharePoint (although you will probably be considering 2013 versions or beyond in those discussions), but the platform should be a strong competitor to any alternatives. Realizing the capability of a fully-branded and customized website was not part of the original choice for the architecture at Lincoln, but seeing it implemented and functioning now with this capacity far beyond original expectations has certainly cemented plans to continue using it.

Alternatives Considered

I honestly was not there when they started using MS SharePoint. I joined the company when they were still using in it. Some reasons they cite being that it was effective for them and that they did not chose Google products because they have tendency of abandoning or changing terms and their approach to a solution.

Collaboration and Sharing

We have been using this program for years and it is the best when it comes to data and information sharing. With reference to the previous statement, we have many data sources and many operating platforms (not an operating system). Also, we employees all are doing various tasks and sharing data and information at the same time. MS SharePoint / SQL has greatly helped us to achieve this level of work and excellence.

Data Integration

MS SharePoint / SQL7.7
Based on 42 answers
Because it has easy compatibility features. My company uses many data sources which serve the major server connecting points - the development environment, the testing environment and the production environment. All these points are connected to MS SharePoint/SQL to provide excellent data and information sharing. Since the adoption and implementation of MS SharePoint/SQL, there has not been any instance of a problem that was rated high or unsolvable.

Return on Investment

  • I've installed SharePoint in many different industries and each industry has seen greater collaboration among their teams both locally and nationally. The ability to collaborate more efficiently has reduced the need to have employees centrally located.
  • Companies which have used SharePoint in a end user training portal have had great ROI, since they can create the content once and share with all their users who subscribe to their training service. The web content management aspect of SharePoint is a very helpful feature.
