Overall Satisfaction with OneDrive

OneDrive is used in our organization as the primary online document management and cloud storage platform. It is used widely within all areas of business in integration product and project work streams, connecting an online experience for document review and revision, a storage management system for materials like online media and artifacts and marketing document repository to name a few. The platform cuts down on paper copies around the enterprise and offers a secure platform for users to easily learn and use.

OneDrive feels native is you are a Microsoft 365 user. The integration aspect of being a Microsoft customer and using all platform tools together helps with driving adoption, ease of learning, and overall efficiency. While Google Drive is widely used as well, there is a ramp up to learning those controls over OneDrive is you are not used to those platforms.

I'll start with what I would not use OneDrive for! I would not use it as a primary source for code repository, there are other more robust tools out there that can help you with storing and making available code repos. Where I would use OneDrive is in a platform for managing files, and with that I mean any file that can be saved offline and access a OneDrive access point, share, or mount. This could be personal, business, or data from a system that is saved in a standard file format. The OneDrive platform is great for documents collaboration as well, with the ability to allow for share and links to be provided to for easy access and collaboration. I would also recommend if you are someone who likes to use cloud services and rely less and less on offline storage. OneDrive excels in this area!
