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

Pros

  • SharePoint is a great document management solution.
  • Allows collaboration, which it maximizes productivity since all information needed is centralized.
  • Portal has some robust capabilities that allows you to share, publish and interact with others inside your organization.

Cons

  • Excessive features can sometimes be overwhelming and difficult to locate. Also, configuring security is slightly complicated unless you are a SharePoint developer.
  • Sometimes the application freezes and locks up. However, this could be due to the network configuration from my organization's end.
  • Loading the calendars is sometimes slow and freezes.

SQL Server is an asset to several projects that I work on. Personally, I even use SQL Server to work with large sets of data that don't stay in a database (ex: I load data into a table to work with the data, and then remove it from the database when I'm done - either exporting it to an excel file or an email, etc.).

Breadth of Deployment

MS SharePoint / SQL is used company-wide for our enterprise users at all levels, and our contractors. This is a base of 10-12,000 users. Plans are being developed to extend to many of our field and sales staff nationally also, so they have easy and secure access to the information on the intranet and possibly some other SharePoint sites within the company from an external network/location. This could potentially serve additional thousands, or tens of thousands of users.

Alternatives Considered

The ease of tagging files and folders in Google Drive, but not having to move things is STILL something significant that MS has yet to address. A file may rest in a folder, but be relevant to several other topics or projects.

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.
