OneDrive

OneDrive has the best storage to price ratio of any solution I know. It is also the only one integrated into SharePoint, so if you already have everything in Sharepoint, OneDrive is probably a must. Otherwise, it's not really the best for document cooperation, the client sometimes feels it's in beta even after all this time and it's lacking behind on features like live downloading of files (Drive File Stream) or video playback (Youtube like playback).

Pros

  • Good syncing for the most part.
  • Good availability from multiple device species.
  • iOS app is good enough, made nicer by the fact that you can now save files and folders for offline use.

Cons

  • Sometimes the app is not consistent and will miss edits. I noticed the lasted edits I made to a document from my PC did not transfer to my tablet when I access.
  • The storage is definitely inadequate when considering that extra high resolution photos from newer devices will fill it up in no time when backing up camera to the camera roll.
  • Sometimes the app crashes on my tablet. I find this most common when trying to access a large file.

This product is tightly integrated with our SharePoint and Outlook environment. The fact that it is as convenient as a cloud service that we are used to, but more secure is a winner.

It is really set up and forget. Nothing more.

Alternatives Considered

Though I would say that iCloud is more reliable, it is only compatible with Apple products. I use iCloud personally, but we do not own any Apple products as a business. I find that Dropbox can be confusing and not consistent with storage management. OneDrive solves the problem of being compatible with business software and has great storage management in comparison

Return on Investment

  • I'm not sure that we have really analyzed what kind of ROI OneDrive has impacted the business; I do agree that it makes working from home a lot easier.
  • Having a flexible schedule outside of tax season, I find myself working more from home. Being able to effectively manage all our documents/photos/ads/promotional artwork from my home computer is awesome.
  • Happy employees means a happy business!
