Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint

MS SharePoint is being used in our organization as our Intranet. It is used in nearly every department. MS SharePoint addresses business problems in many different departments. It allows multiple users from different departments to collaborate on the same document. We also have had success using it for training documentation, internal calendars, and some document management.

Pros

  • It is a very strong intranet
  • Calendar is robust and can be configured
  • Ability to store and navigate to shared documents.

Cons

  • Configuration is costly
  • Configuration is expensive
  • MS SharePoint has been in use since I started. I could not comment on ROI as I am not sure what was in place prior.
  • We run some complex workflows in SP and it manages them quite well
  • SP can be cumbersome to set up and deploy
We use both M-Files and MS SharePoint. The strengths of M-Files are user experience and adoption. It can be deployed and managed much easier than MS SharePoint. Since we use both there are pieces of each installation that are integrated. We would probably move entirely to M-Files but our initial investment when setting up SP is too high to leave it.
As mentioned earlier, MS SharePoint is a very powerful intranet. It has full functionality for different areas of responsibility in different departments. As with any software configuration and implementation are keys to success. Our use case for MS SharePoint could be vastly different from what other organizations are choosing.
