Likelihood to Recommend

MS SharePoint / SQL

It is good for communication within company and being able to reach a lot of users. While it is a very powerful tool it could be misused easily and become just a giant pile of digital junk. Unless you have users that are responsible for their own content it will be IT's nightmare.

There are no other products out there that provide the seamless integration between all back office applications. With everything moving to a cloud based environment using a portal application like SharePoint should be a no brainer for any corporation, small or large. The investment is worth it in the end, as there are many intangible results that will make your workforce more agile and learn to collaborate more efficiently.

Alternatives Considered

MS SharePoint / SQL

SharePoint is dominant in its category being that in my personal experience I have not found an equivalent application solution. Microsoft keeps adding and improving its functionality which its reassuring to know that the product will continue to evolve since it first came out around 2011. The recent enhancements and improvements since O365 in the cloud make it that much of a better product solution.

Return on Investment

MS SharePoint / SQL

  • 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.
