A simple and important scenario well suited is that you can configure alerts to notify you when the production server fails. another best feature is the report server is the central component of reporting services. For me something less appropriate is that the admin must ensure optimal performance for farm operations, they recommend that you install SQL Server on a dedicated server that does not run other farm roles and does not host databases for other applications.

It works well for us as a news feed. Having the ability to post new blog posts and staff comments on the articles posted. This allows remote sites to connect and brings everyone together in a sense. For us being a small shop, it is difficult to take full advantage of all SharePoint has to offer. There is a lot of advanced configuration available but it requires a high degree of specialized knowledge to take advantage of.

It can be used by human resources for managing onboarding and recruitment-related information. It can be used by project managers to maintain project-related information, invoices, contracts, etc. It can be used by a portal admin to store portal-specific data like images, videos, and other data. It can be used to create applications that can solve business [problems]. The only thing is it is a bit of a hassle when you try to connect it to other systems like SAP/Salesforce and other SQL subsystems. There is not much we can do with it.

I love SharePoint for document management and collaboration. It is really good for internal use for example making your own internal company knowledge available to agents and keeping everyone up to date. SharePoint is secured and easy to manage, there is a very nice learning curve and admins will love it as it will make their life easier.

Both products are really good at what they do. There are plenty of trained specialists on both, so it is easy for an organisation to find someone to support both. SharePoint has a potential for unlimited customisation, however, requires a specialist developer.
SQL can handle almost anything you throw at it (in terms of database size), however, also has its limitations.
SharePoint is great to present files/blogs/any information to the end user and using themes you can have it look unique.

MS SharePoint / SQL can be cheap depending on what you are using it for, and there is even a free Express version if your application requirements are small. In that regard, MS SharePoint / SQL can be used in any business large or small, and many programs may even come with the free version as well depending on the application.

We have used it successfully as mentioned on two large programs, but again it is an enterprise tool so I am only speaking from the standpoint of my team. Hundreds of teams across our enterprise use this every day. We keep our decision tracker out there as well as important program documents required by our SDLC process like requirements, etc. We also publish test results for the team to see. We use SharePoint to share test data across the organization as we can not just email files back and forth. We can rely on the security settings of SharePoint to allow access to only those team members that need to see the test data. And even though our test data is masked, we still control access to it. I would recommend that any team can benefit from using SharePoint and it gives a good place to store program/project files. It becomes the source of the truth and you just keep putting the most current versions and save them to SharePoint.

The solution is a great option for SMBs to be able to securely manage content (particularly documents from the Office platform) while still being able to share them with anyone in the world. The built in solutions for approval workflows and content life cycle controls are basic and broad enough to get most organizations started.

If your organization needs to do anything beyond the included basics, or do them in different ways, customizations will be necessary, which will add to the initial expense as well as ongoing maintenance concerns.

MS SharePoint/SQL is great for companies that have nationwide deployments that require different locations to collaborate and share files and cross communicate. Sharepoint is a great collaboration tool for any company to utilize and is included in your Office 365 subscription.

We can share company documents within the company network easily, instead of sharing them via the file server and struggling with the share permissions. It also stores the files in one place, and this way it makes our management of the documents much easier. And as it is a Microsoft product, getting information on the internet is much easier according to other products.

Well-suited for most businesses. Any limitations can be overcome with proper configuration and/or add-ons. Particularly well-suited for the two opposite ends of Power Users and Newbies. Power Users can be given permission to design pages, etc. while less technical users can be limited to Contribute or Read access to whatever. Excellent permission management in both products.

It is useful to store and keep track of all our documents that we need access to throughout the day. This means users can access key files, review them, and amend them without concern. And we can access this without using drive space, which is at a premium within the business. The SQL allows us to track and monitor the data that our OCR applications regularly output, which is large amounts of data. It is less appropriate with smaller data samples, when access might suit better.

I think MS SharePoint is well suited for larger organizations, but not as much so for smaller organizations. The amount of customization and setup time may be a time suck for smaller organizations. I suggest that any companies that consider using SharePoint have a robust IT department to set up and administer the software.

If you have staff resources to dedicate to building out SharePoint it is worth looking into, however if you don't have staff you should consider finding a vendor who can build out your environment to suit your needs. Vendor / consultant might make this less attractive over turnkey solution for intranet / service desk though.

Since a lot of companies are looking to have more of a global presence there is a need for more collaborative working between different teams and departments across the globe. SharePoint brings together MS Teams, OneDrive, Yammer and Delve in order to make collaborative working possible and that much easier. I would only really recommend using SharePoint for large organizations or companies that are looking to work more closely with their counterparts in other countries within the same company. Collaboration should be the biggest incentive for using SharePoint.

SharePoint is a good fit in organizations where the users are vocal and enjoy sharing information in a social media-type style. It is easy to pick up and use for most people. SharePoint pages can be easily customized.

Extremely well suited when interacting with a large audience. Also integrates seamlessly with MS office products like MS Word and MS Excel. Easy to build a portal and customize for each set of users. Not well suited when speed is of the essence. Sometimes loading the calendars and data is pretty slow for huge datasets.
