Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint

Our organization heavily depends on MS SharePoint for better collaboration, thereby improving the productivity. As SharePoint is well connected with all Microsoft Office components, this made the organization business more efficient and overall better for all employees and customers.

I can proudly vouch for the fact that our organization has leveraged all the possible features provided by SharePoint, transforming it into many products, applications, and content management. As this is a web based product, SharePoint was adopted to most of the solutions in the enterprise, and can be treated as a best case on how a product can be converted in many different ways.

Our organization was able to understand the business requirements and have trimmed the platform, serv[ing] all those requirements without depending on other technologies. With the introduction of Power platforms, SharePoint was able to take our organization to extraordinary levels, which I believe would have been impossible with any other technology. In a nutshell, SharePoint have done miracles for our organization in every aspect and is still going strong.









  • Better Collaboration across organization
  • Customized solutions based on business requirements
  • Automate business process thereby saving valuable time which transforms into better productivity
  • Centralized administration which makes the security and governance easy
  • As this is a cloud based product, connectivity can be a challenge at times when there is network issues. However, Microsoft is really working on areas to improve the availability during such times with their inbuilt solutions / products.
  • Over the period, complex customizations in SharePoint requires effort and time and may need to involve dedicated developers for the same. However, with the introduction of Power platforms that support low code/ no code solution, even business users are able to automate / build their own solutions which is a great sign and Microsoft should bring more such flexibility for future as well.
  • As SharePoint is evolving in a greater pace over the years, this will become difficult for smaller business organizations on adopting those rapid changes as they might not have that much bandwidth to accommodate it. Of course, Microsoft is clearly providing a roadmap of the roll-outs well in advance, still I would feel like there should be a room for improvement around that corner especially for small scale organizations.
  • As SharePoint is one of the top content collaboration tool which is seamlessly integrated with all other products / solutions from Microsoft or externals, the productivity of employees in the organization can go like a sky rocket and we are witnessing it from the business.
  • As SharePoint provides scaling up/down at any point based on the business needs, any sized organization can choose the best plan according to their need and can leverage the scaling functionality at later stage
  • Business can use SharePoint solutions to automate repeated tasks/ process that they encounter daily and can avoid manual / repeat works
  • As SharePoint is more based out of web based product, network issues or fluctuations can be a challenge at times. However, Microsoft is really working on bringing standalone products that works without a network availability.
  • Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) and WordPress
The above mentioned tools can be used as an alternative for SharePoint based on the business cases. However, the features provided by all these products are very limited [when] we compare the product SharePoint. These alternatives have space in their own area or market. However, when it comes to the features, solutions, flexibility , data management etc. which is being provided by these products, it won't match anywhere near to what actually MS SharePoint provides. Hence, I can proudly say that SharePoint has become the major player leading far behind all other alternatives in the other market.
Moreover [,] considering the fact that almost 80% of the Fortune 500 companies are using SharePoint for their organizations does speak [to] the popularity of MS SharePoint across the globe.
