Box is a content storing portal where you can host and share documents/files to others. But it does not have [Sharepoint's] capabilities like... versions, automation, email approvals, etc. And Microsoft Exchange is a mailing database that can be used for exchanging data using emails, but SharePoint does much more than that in terms of single central level storing and sharing of data.

If you are looking for a document management and collaboration tool to use as a web portal that comes with SQL data base and easy to manage and something you can learn very quick, look no further than SharePoint but if you need a pure database then this is not for you.

When I was implementing the company's Intranet, SharePoint was the clear winner - it was free, Microsoft-made product and in testing it did exactly what we wanted it to.
When it gets to selecting your database back-end, admins can be limited by what the product being implemented supports, however, in our case we evaluated few products and SQL Standard came in firsts, hands down. Its functionality is great, cost is good too and it is widely used, so it is easy to find a specialist in case of issues.

At the time of the two large projects, SharePoint was the enterprise solution so we were required to use that. We have since lobbied the enterprise teams to review and consider Atlassian Confluence and were successful. Confluence is cheaper than Sharepoint which is why we wanted to bring that in. The enterprise has now made Confluence an enterprise solution as an alternative to SharePoint. After using both I think SharePoint has many more add-ins than Confluence. It has much more customization ability than Confluence. SharePoint is not good for mobile readiness. Confluence is so there is a difference that might lead you to Confluence over SharePoint. I would also say that SharePoint is very document-centric and that Confluence has better KM than SharePoint does. even with the use of SQL Server. We were told that we could not use Google Drive even though it had features we liked.

At its core, MS SharePoint (with SQL) is for managing document-based content. It falls just short of being a best in class records manager (it does offer some features for this though), and it isn't the easiest to solution to make great looking modern and engaging web sites. It sits somewhere in between and can do a little bit of both out of the box, and do a lot more with some development effort. Other solutions cannot do both and do not even come close to the breadth of possibilities. Think of the MS SharePoint / SQL as a Swiss army knife of solutions. It can do a lot of things reasonably well, but if you need a really special blade for a special job, you probably should get that blade for that job. If you want an all around platform that has lots of different blades (some more helpful than others), then look at MS SharePoint / SQL.

We looked at Google Drive but it didn't have the API and integration that SharePoint has with 3rd party software providers. Also, Google Drive has basic functionality compared to MS SharePoint and how you can customize and build-out.

Dropbox is a user-friendly product, but Sharepoint is a native Microsoft product that can be implemented into any Microsoft products, which are used mostly in our environment. Finding solutions on the internet is much easier, as it is used commonly by other organizations as well. This is the most powerful use of the SharePoint (being available on any platform).

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.

We had staff resources able to create, configure, and mange our sharepoint environment, so it made sense for us and gave us greater flexibility than these turnkey solutions. Certainly each solution has its merits and each are completely different price points. We already had existing sharepoint and sql licensing so by building our solution we had increase roi on these prior purchase.

We evaluated Atlassian Confluence and compared it to our current SharePoint implementation. We felt that the two products were quite similar in the user experience but we chose to keep our SharePoint farms up and running. This was mainly due to the cost of switching and the fact that they are both similar in feel and use. Confluence did some cool things but not enough to tip the scales.

  • Liferay Digital Experience Platform (DXP)
MS SharePoint integrates excellently with all the MS Office products, making it the default choice for any organization using MS Office. Comparatively, it's easier to build a portal on SharePoint than on Liferay for our requirements.

We have evaluated Google for Work, but since we are under contract with Microsoft, SharePoint integrates better with Microsoft services like email (Exchange), storage (OneDrive for business), Microsoft Project... It made more sense to proceed with SharePoint than getting completely separate system and on the other side you have to think about compliance because Microsoft have been in this game for much longer than any other company.
