Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint

As of today, we are using the SharePoint platform across the whole organization. On the SharePoint platform we are offering several services, such as: corporate intranet, MS Project Server, BI reports, One Drive for Business, a module for Learning Management System (LMS) and an internal messaging tool (somewhat like MailChimp).
  • It's a 100% collaborative platform.
  • It's easy to share files and documents between users in the organization, so they can modify them and upload them again for continued sharing.
  • The scalability of the platform is one of it's best features, you can add new functions as you need them.
  • It requires a robust infrastructure for optimal performance of the services.
  • The configuration of some of the services can be quite complex.
  • The licensing can be a little expensive, and increases as you add servers.
  • It's great for secure document sharing across all the locations of the organization.
  • As you can centralize services, you can also centralize the support for them.
  • High costs for licensing, implementation and configuration.
The decision of selecting MS Sharepoint was relatively easy, as we have all our servers and applications in Microsoft Environments. So, by selecting SharePoint, we didn't have to worry about compatibility issues. Also, the majority of our partners are Microsoft Gold Certified, so we have several options to choose from (although pricey).
I recommend using the MS Sharepoint platform across large enterprises that requires document sharing, generation of Business Intelligence reports, etc. keeping the information centralized with the possibility of multiple simultaneous access to the information. It's best suited for organizations that use Active Directory. Medium and little enterprises may struggle with the pricey licensing of Sharepoint.
