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.

Great for SMB companies. Though we have many sites in international locales the distances involved make it unsuited for export outside the contiguous US

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.

Xerox DocuShare

  • Search and retrieval are excellent.
  • The web interface is easy and intuitive.
  • There is a client interface for selected users who require one.
Mark Pettigrew | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

Xerox DocuShare

  • The client could use improvement. It is characterized as a secondary interface by Xerox but for the users who prefer it is their primary entry point.

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.

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!

Planning to the last detail would be advised. SharePoint is a very large application that takes a lot of finesse to get operational

Alternatives Considered

MS SharePoint

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

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.
Jessalyn Ka | TrustRadius Reviewer

Xerox DocuShare

  • Positive impact by reducing fees for secure storage of paper records.
  • Reduction in the use of filing space and materials.
  • Fast, efficient access to accounting data, e.g., invoices and receipts.
