MS SharePoint

It's very well suited to act as an intranet, where it's only going to be used internally by employees of a company. It works well to share documents, provide lists of reference materials to users, provide a place for departments to have their own discussions and calendars and other collaboration purposes. It includes "workflows" unlike its predecessors, and those can define the flow of a process or task and walk the user through that flow very effectively. In fact, an employee's entire job could hypothetically be scripted using SharePoint workflows. It can scale OK in small scale terms, as I have experience of using it in networks with under a few thousand users. I don't know how it would behave if there were tens of thousands of hundreds of thousands of users, but provided the infrastructure is scaled proportionately, I don't see why it wouldn't work well at that scale as well.

OpenText TeamSite

Well suited for a business that wants to update content themselves and have the ability to manage content in one area and use on multiple websites. Companies who want to personalize their content and secure their content. TeamSite is easy to use and new associates can pick up making content changes quickly.

Pros

MS SharePoint

  • With MS Sharepoint you can share (in my case) projects, initiative trackers, with ID and the information I need to start my developing.
  • It offers cloud acaccessibility, so you do not need to maintain your documents on your hard drive.
  • It allows Office 365 integration, which for me is really great. Using MS Excel and MS Sharepoint.

  • If you are nostalgic for 2004 style, closed source, poorly documented, ultra-proprietary, "enterprise"-ey type apps...this will be for you.

Cons

MS SharePoint

  • SharePoint sometimes has a challenge with the Share feature in Office 365. Traditional best practices are to govern collaboration with permissions groups and manage access at the group level. Share can sometimes undermine that by creating ad-hoc situations unintentionally.
  • SharePoint's success in many organizations is really a function of user adoption and training. It is such a large platform that it is often deployed without much governance or direction.
  • SharePoint's lists and libraries can leverage Excel services and like-kind tools, but the ability for a list to do math in the same way that Excel does is very limited. It still has a room for improvement in the business intelligence features of metadata management.

OpenText TeamSite

  • Template and log access requires elevated privileges and could be exposed to front end teams more easily
  • Moving content and code between environments requires manual effort

The only drawback is the price, it's quite costly to buy and requires Microsoft professionals to run at its peak capabilities. It works very well with large quantities of employees, has powerful search capabilities and a huge community. However it might not be a good fit for smaller companies who don't handle a large number of documents and employees and who don't exert high security requirements.

Usability

SharePoint is easy to use for basic tasks. If you're trying to do something a bit more complicated, though, it can be difficult to figure it out on your own without going through a lot of trial and error. Most people will likely only be performing basic tasks, though, so I would rate the usability pretty high.

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!

Alternatives Considered

While SharePoint isn't as easy to use as Igloo or Squarespace, it comes bundled with Office 365 and drives the backend of those tools. I don't see SharePoint as a place people want to go and see stuff, but rather as a glue that supports all the other Office Products. If we get more in house expertise, then it could be a place that people manage work, but it's not used that way right now

OpenText went through an RFP process against IBM Content Management back in 2012. OpenText not only met our business and technical requirements, but we asked both vendors to show a use case and OpenText provided an extensive solution that IBM could not. Also the content publishing capabilities was light years ahead. A couple of years ago, a new business manager had a bias toward Drupal. In looking at both systems side by side, Drupal had many flaws that would cause the content editor to spend a lot longer to accomplish their tasks. There were some business and technical requirements either Drupal could not meet or you needed add-on products to satisfy what is already in OpenText TeamSte.

Return on Investment

MS SharePoint

  • We moved from DocuShare to MS SharePoint and it's been proven very effective.
  • Using MS SharePoint has provided immediate access to documents to staff where in the past, they would have to wait for an admin staff to forward to them.
  • It has been a positive impact for our organization - our newer staff has really benefited from MS SharePoint.

  • Every change related to Autonomy is mired down by the inefficient but necessary exchange with product support personnel.
