While searching for tools to satisfy a quickly scaling online startup, we found Nextcloud is well suited for today's remote collaborative team. Nextcloud has just the right toolset for a collaborative workspace including video, chat, many file formats accepted, and intuitive user interface. Comparatively other popular tools like Trello were distracting with more features than functionality. Working with Nextcloud is much like having a workspace with all your content and tools available anywhere on any device, without the ads, distractions, and irrelevant functionality. We will continue to utilize Nextcloud as a remote workspace for evolving and scaling teams.

Nextclod is a very reliable solution to manage client and organization data, the cloud platform allows to manage files and organizational data efficiently.

Easy for individuals who has less experience or computer literacy to cope up with the application and to flexibly manage or operate while for those who wishes to minimize privacy measures related to data stored in the cloud.

It’s available on most platforms and provides add-on facilities and effective integration to additional setups which can be connected to manage company or business requirements.

However, it's less appropriate for single users to host because appropriate hardware is required for hosting and other services.

There are some valid scenarios:

1. File Sharing with others around your company: great to give your employees the possibility to securely share files with outsiders of your company
2. Providing your customers / client with a secure way to upload files to your company, without having to worry that your customer sends private files with an untrusted service
3. All in One Solution for your Team (File Sharing, Calendar, Mail, Apps): This scenario is for our use cases not battle ready yet, may be suited for smaller teams.

When users needed to get their files and folders while outside of the network (such as at home or a remote location) they would normally use our agent-based SD-WAN to connect using Windows devices to their provisioned resources. However, when using other devices this was not always possible, and so Nextcloud served to meet this access need well. It is also highly useful as a personal or business-user storage tool on its own, and the recent advancements in their web collaboration, online office tools, and other apps have made this an extremely versatile platform. It is almost, in and of itself, a suite that can replace Office 365 or Google Workspaces for those shops that need to keep data local but provide web access to it.

Nextcloud works well in a small organization where you need to quickly find an alternative to closed-source or hosted filesharing. It is very flexible for sharing documents with partners, clients, an accountant, etc. It integrates smoothly with email software such as emClient for calendar handling and for sharing large documents (a link will be shared automatically, instead of attaching the file). It is probably less appropriate for very large business environments where the database and rights model (shared folders) is too simple.

Nextcloud is suitable for content collaboration such as sharing docunents , emails and reminding one another of important emails and it is less suited in accessing it's tools online unlike other cloud platforms , it is not yet user friendly or compatible with a live cloud tool accessibility also it doesn't have the right advertising or marketing team

We use the Nextcloud app to be able to have real-time communication between various entities in our organization and reach out globally to provide life-changing resources to our contacts. Most of our use is focused on directed-contacts via email and sharing support materials via the document sharing and collaboration capabilities.

It’s great as an alternative to OneDrive when you can’t fully use Office 365. For example, sharing files with other people, with groups, setting the expiration date and password for the files. And, about less recommended scenarios, honestly, I don't see any. Perhaps, only the configuration time, which is longer than a SaaS option.

Nextcloud is well suited in any collaboration scenario where users wants to share comments and resources as well as organize events or work together.
It is also very well suited for non-profit organizations as it is free to use and very simple even for non-tech users.
I can't imagine scenarios where it might not be appropriate as running requirements are minimal (php, mysql) so even a single user could find benefit to use it as an alternative for basic icloud or gmail use (files with desktop and mobile clients, calendar and address book).
