Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint / SQL

It was being used at Starbucks and is being used at LendingTree to share information between individuals, teams, and organizations. We use it both for sharing business processes and information as well as training material. Some of the SQL that it generates is not tremendously performant, but the sites serve thousands of people very well.
  • We're using it here at LendingTree as a centralized document storage location broken up by teams and content so it's easy to find what you're looking for in a centralized location.
  • At Starbucks, we used it to pass along information to the tens of thousands of baristas located all over the world.
  • Some of the SQL it generates is, or at least was, pretty horrible. It could do a better job of taking advantage of the performance possibilities within SQL Server.
  • It is pretty easy for one user to change settings for an entire team, in an unintended manner. But perhaps that's just because we aren't provisioning users as well as we could be.
I haven't used any other products that compete with it. I started my career at Microsoft and the two subsequent locations have also been Microsoft shops.
I've only ever used Microsoft data sources and while those work well, I cannot speak for all the rest.
The ease of sharing and collaborating is great, the performance is great if implemented properly, and the security is great if implemented properly.
As mentioned earlier, if you want a centralized documentation repository, it's pretty hard to beat.
