Product Details

What is SharePoint?

MS SharePoint / SQL refers to Microsoft Sharepoint, a web-based collaborative platform, being used in tandem with Microsoft SQL Server to provide business intelligence analytics and reporting. They can provide BI content such as data connections, reports, scorecards, dashboards, and more.

With Sharepoint, users can share files, data, news, and resources. Sites can be customized to streamline teams’ work. Team members can collaborate inside and outside the organization, across PCs, Macs, and mobile devices.

Sharepoint also supports the ability to discover data, expertise, and insights to inform decisions and guide action. SharePoint’s content management features, along with connections and conversations surfaced in Yammer, enable organizations to maximize their velocity of knowledge.

Users can also accelerate productivity by transforming processes—from tasks like notifications and approvals to operational workflows. With SharePoint lists and libraries, Microsoft Flow, and PowerApps, they can create digital experiences with forms, workflows, and custom apps for every device.

When looking for company updates in the morning you can open up the SharePoint and the page displays upcoming and past events with a directory on the right hand side to assist with navigating things you would like to find. Making it user friendly for people who may struggle at times to navigate.

Microsoft SharePoint is a good tool if you plan to integrate with the Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Office suites. The programs tie together well and sharing files within the organization is done securely and without the need to manage a file server. I would not tend to use Microsoft SharePoint on its own, as there are better choices. It works seamlessly when used together with the full suite of tools.

The biggest (& only) reason I would recommend SharePoint is because it is integrated with MS Office. The simultaneous-editing, auto-versioning, alerts, messaging and other team collaboration capabilities are found in other tools which have a more 'modern' interface. SharePoint's features feel dated and not that advanced compared to other cloud-based tools which are also cheaper.

MS Sharepoint is specifically useful when you have to collaborate with multiple teams. All teams know what exactly is happening and if they need help they can get it without asking you to share the link every time. This really [transfers] the burden from my shoulders to the participants. As participants can access all resources on demand. For a small team[,] it might feel [like] firing a cannon to kill a mosquito. They can avoid Sharepoint and use [a] planner. If you are the one like me who was excited to see different templates, you will be sad to see there are not many and most of them [look the same].

Best place to keep peers posted and updated. Best please to share document/files. Our townhall results are shared on MS sharepoint any one can simply be updated if any important information is missed. Some times it becomes difficult to load documents, one should have stable internet connection to surf smoothly.

MS Sharepoint is an excellent tool for teams that often communicate with each other about their progress. Tasks, reports, and projects are easier to keep track of when we use this tool. Create training plans and train new employees remotely with this tool. It's a great way to cut costs. MS SharePoint is our go-to solution in managing corporate content, documents, records, and information. The motivation is to comply with legal, information management, and process requirements. Our SharePoint deployment replaced legacy corporate file servers. Easy to use document repository with built-in versioning.

Again, this is where you will likely store 90% of your company files. We have found that larger files like photoshop and AutoCAD are just too big and the upload/download time is too long or will fail out and makes it not very friendly for larger files. It is nice that IT also does not have to be the one granting permissions as you have site owners who grant access to their specific areas.

It serves well as alternative to physical hard drives. It can be accessed from anywhere. If you use office 365 suite then its a great deal. However for someone using gsuite its a additional purchase. Drag and drop is easy to upload files or folders. Version controls gives us great option to view any changes made to files by whom and when, it is great for collaboration.

MS SharePoint is well suited for organizations that already fully use the MS Office suite of products and would find it difficult to transition. MS SharePoint functionality does perform well within the Microsoft family of products.

However, if starting fresh, MS SharePoint lags behind its competitors in most every area. The user friendliness is not great. It's difficult to administer permissions to large sets of users. The invitation system is slow and not very customizable. Even the interface feels outdated.

SharePoint could be useful for fairly small libraries of content when the system users (preferably also a small group) are committed to being consistent about their metadata and organizational conventions. It is not appropriate for large organizations with massive amounts of data and content to organize. There isn't a good way to police user habits on the site, and too many cooks definitely spoil this kitchen.

If someone wants to stay deeply involved in the Microsoft universe and share information, it is a good tool. It also comes with great security features. However, it doesn't work as well on a Mac computer and it doesn't create beautiful and ergonomic websites. It has too [many] constraints. That being said it can be a relatively simple tool to create internal websites.

If you work with teams of people and need a good way to work collaboratively that I would easily recommend MS SharePoint. It makes working remotely a breeze. You can share, save, store, and edit files live with any users on your team. You can keep on track with project calendars. It is a great tool for project management and planning.

It might not be a great tool for an organization that already has a solution for data sharing and a robust planning program. If you are using something like Jira or Trello you may have some of these pieces already. I think SharePoint is well suited to do a lot of things very well but it may be redundant if you have solutions for some of these problems already. If you have a staff that is more functional and less techy then you will probably want to have at least one or two staff members that are proficient enough to run the SharePoint and keep it cleaned up.

[MS] Sharepoint is well suited for a company intranet site because you can post your documentation in very specific spaces where permissions and security restrictions are needed depending on your audience. You can also have shared spaces that are open to the entire company. This way, it's very easy to update information as you also have versioning control and you can follow activity when documents/information changes. If you are trying to use [MS] Sharepoint to share information outside of your organization or use it solely as a documentation repository, then I don't think you're using it to the best of its abilities.

I feel that SharePoint is applicable for companies of all sizes. If any company is already using Office 365/Microsoft 365, using SharePoint makes a lot of sense to extend collaboration options. Any situation that requires sharing files, SharePoint can help without needing to rely on VPN or some other direct connection back to on premise storage. It also allows very simple and easy website building to present information like for an HR department. The files can also connect very easily to OneDrive for File Explorer manipulation.

  • MS SharePoint is the best content management tool available, which is seamlessly connected with all other office products which brings the productivity at the peak
  • Based on the organization requirements, we can adopt the right plans and models which will be convenient for small, middle or large enterprise companies
  • Security governance of data is well within the hands of the organization and can be managed with minimal efforts
  • SharePoint can be well integrated with almost all latest products / features available in the market and they keep adding it over the period which is a great relief for any business wherein they may require to collaborate with other products based on business needs
  • For small scale organizations, they need to well analyze their business requirements, budget etc. before adopting SharePoint as complex customizations may take a good amount of effort which might not be feasible for them in every circumstances

You are working on a project plan with two other teams (5 staff total) and you need to all work from the same document (edit and review) and have access to other resources. MS SharePoint would have a folder for the projects where all the staff can easily access the various content pieces.

Less appropriate: You need to edit a video file or some other creative materials collaboratively (i.e. I do not think "editing" PDFs or Adobe Creative Files is easy. In these cases, I've still needed to download the files to my local machine, work on them, and then re-upload them to SharePoint).

It is well suited for project management and on the fly website development. Great tool for team collaboration and sharing across geos and organizations. Cloud services add value while working with out side teams and companies.

Not suited for regulated document management as the tool is not validated and not accepted by regulatory authorities.

A great option to use as a central collaboration hub
Well suited for organisations with a clear structure/looking to implement one for documentation/knowledge
UX/UI can be confusing, so getting initial buy-in within an org can be challenging and may take longer than expected

We primarily use [MS] SharePoint for enterprise content, document and record management, including storage, retrieval, searching, archiving, tracking, management, and reporting of data. Much of the impetus for this is to conform to various legal, information management, and process compliance requirements. Our SharePoint implementation replaces legacy shared corporate fileservers which have now been migrated to Azure cloud.

SharePoint is well suited for organizations whose documents are largely shared across teams and coworkers. It would be less appropriate for a company that needs to keep each file private. It would not be well suited for personal information or private reviews.

SharePoint is best suited with its out of box features, with minimal customization. SharePoint can be integrated with InfoPath for managing workflows. SharePoint Designer helps in designing the websites. SharePoint provides with a lot of web parts like Pick Control web part which picks the user controls (.ascx), Summary link web part which creates hyperlinks to pages/documents, Content editor web part for adding content, RSS web part for displaying RSS feeds and so on.
SharePoint is less appropriate where there is heavy customization involved.
