Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint / SQL

SharePoint is basically a collaboration platform for teams to connect, collaborate and work by sharing data pertaining to their work/project. In my case, it is being used across the organization. In most cases, it is used by a group of people for team collaboration. Some of them are using it for storing data, some are using this platform to create applications for business applications. Like, for example, the HR team can use a SharePoint site to store details about the upcoming programs, recruitment, etc; a business team can use it for storing business proposals, meeting contents, souvenirs, etc. So it has multiple uses for hosting content and the supporting tools to make it a solution.
  • Collaboration
  • Security
  • Automation
  • User-friendly
  • Quick enablement platfrom
  • Search
  • Customization
  • Number of items limit
  • No direct integration to other systems
  • It is one central location for our confidential data when stored on-premises for our data privacy.
  • It is our repository for reference data, ...[large] in size with all search and retrieval mechanisms to reduce our data archival efforts.
  • It is a rapid development platform as well. When it is compared with .NET Framework, it is very fast to build and implement.
Box is a content storing portal where you can host and share documents/files to others. But it does not have [Sharepoint's] capabilities like... versions, automation, email approvals, etc. And Microsoft Exchange is a mailing database that can be used for exchanging data using emails, but SharePoint does much more than that in terms of single central level storing and sharing of data.

Did implementation of MS SharePoint / SQL go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy MS SharePoint / SQL again?

Yes

Most of the time it is user-friendly, but if you want[ed] to customize it was difficult in the past. Now it is emerging and evolving. From the point of customization, I feel it needs more focus and hard work! Again from the integration view it does not have... [the best] connectivity but [it] needs proper guidance.
It's been fantastic in terms of Premier Support so far. If there is an issue and if you report if the product has an issue, they will act upon it immediately. In some cases, if you design/develop something using the platform, Microsoft appreciates it and... publishes it on their public website. But you have to wait for some time if it is a non-Premier Support issue as you may experience delays.
It can be used by human resources for managing onboarding and recruitment-related information. It can be used by project managers to maintain project-related information, invoices, contracts, etc. It can be used by a portal admin to store portal-specific data like images, videos, and other data. It can be used to create applications that can solve business [problems]. The only thing is it is a bit of a hassle when you try to connect it to other systems like SAP/Salesforce and other SQL subsystems. There is not much we can do with it.
