MS SharePoint / SQL

We have used it successfully as mentioned on two large programs, but again it is an enterprise tool so I am only speaking from the standpoint of my team. Hundreds of teams across our enterprise use this every day. We keep our decision tracker out there as well as important program documents required by our SDLC process like requirements, etc. We also publish test results for the team to see. We use SharePoint to share test data across the organization as we can not just email files back and forth. We can rely on the security settings of SharePoint to allow access to only those team members that need to see the test data. And even though our test data is masked, we still control access to it. I would recommend that any team can benefit from using SharePoint and it gives a good place to store program/project files. It becomes the source of the truth and you just keep putting the most current versions and save them to SharePoint.

I think for a robust, all-inclusive management system, it does a good job. However, by trying to be everything for everyone there is always issues with quality and the user experience. The recent changes have helped with a lot of these issues, but it is still very overwhelming to onboard new employees to the system.

Pros

MS SharePoint / SQL

  • Flexible - able to make any changes we would like vs traditional service desk system.
  • ROI - We were already using SharePoint for internal intranet, so we are simply getting more use out of licensing we had already committed to.
  • Easy to use for end users.

  • The latest user interface makes it easier to use.
  • The search function helps find projects quickly.
  • It covers a lot of areas of your business so there is intrinsic value to how robust it is.

Cons

MS SharePoint / SQL

  • It is hard to setup and nightmare
  • It requires a of infrastructure, thus it could be costly because of requirement and licensing required for everything to run smoothly
  • If it is not setup and organized properly from the beginning it could be maintenance nightmare
  • It is hard to have "test" environment to do patches or similar

  • There is a lot of clunky extras that get in the way of task and project management.
  • It could use a better approval process that alerts supervisors outside of email.
  • It would be great if you could create your own shortcuts so it focuses on what you use the most.

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

MS SharePoint / SQL

I have used both Google Drive and Zoho Docs which seem similar to MS SharePoint. The main differences I noticed as a user is that the user interfaces in both Google Drive and Zoho Docs were much more intuitive and they were much easier to navigate than MS SharePoint. There are a lot more things that you can do with MS SharePoint, but for a smaller company, it may not be worth the investment.

Most of these products serve as the master source for managing data, but they all seem to have their own focus for what kind of data and metrics they monitor, visualize and analyze. I think Visual KPI holds its own against the competition because it serves so many purposes for so many departments at your organization.

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.
