Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint / SQL

We use Microsoft Sharepoint SQL throughout our entire organization. Sharepoint is used as a central file repository for all departments and teams. This enables our employees to access files from any location worldwide. We also use Sharepoint as a notification bulletin board system to enable posting of company wide notification collaboration tools.
  • Internal intranet for our company to enable users a central location for file storage, company wide notification and collaboration tools
  • Enables a central file depository for teams and departments
  • Great search functions
  • Customizable user permissions
  • Integration with 3rd party providers since Sharepoint has been around for years
  • On-boarding can take some time with new hires on how to use SharePoint
  • One issue we noticed is SharePoint One Drive sync issues creep occasionally
  • Cache issues with certain browsers that cause issues and required the browser Cache to be cleared out
  • It can become complex quickly with customization and difficult to fix when problems do arise.
We looked at Google Drive but it didn't have the API and integration that SharePoint has with 3rd party software providers. Also, Google Drive has basic functionality compared to MS SharePoint and how you can customize and build-out.
Sharepoint has been around for ages and had a vast support community including integration with all major enterprise software solution providers. Every release has been adding features and cleaning up the UI to modern standards. You can customize Sharepoint\SQL to your organization's exact needs. It does require knowledgeable people to set up and administer but once done it's an extremely valuable tool for any organization to utilize.
SharePoint has terrific user access control capabilities out of the box and you can further customize those access controls to your companies exact needs. Being able to have a company-wide central file repository is one of the key benefits to any organization. Microsoft throughout the years has really gotten great with security and customization for security profiles.
Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V)
MS SharePoint/SQL is great for companies that have nationwide deployments that require different locations to collaborate and share files and cross communicate. Sharepoint is a great collaboration tool for any company to utilize and is included in your Office 365 subscription.
