We use SharePoint on our ERP system and it works great with integrating with our 3rd party software. I do like how we can integrate it with LDAP and permissions, roles can be setup.

Overall, the usability of the platform takes sometime to get used to and sometimes it takes longer to figure out what session I need to go to, to enable a certain feature.

I have been using SharePoint for about 7 years and I recommend it to any organization who needs a collaborative workspace. It is a Microsoft product, so in most cases, it works like any other Microsoft product, thus reducing the learning curve.

Pros

My favorite thing about SharePoint is that it is a collaborative workspace with access permission capability. It allows you to share and collaborate with only those who need to have access without making your information public to the entire organization.

Cons

When SharePoint is used for Document Retention it can conflict with the collaborative component if the retention schedule is inflexible.

Some people love SharePoint while others hate it. It boils down to user experience and what you want to use it for.

Pros

The ability for a SharePoint admin to make changes to the program help but that requires a FTE to do the work. I like the email alerts and the reporting works well for me. The ability to use SharePoint for many different reasons is also attractive.

Cons

"Off the shelf", SharePoint is very limited and requires a SharePoint Admin to make any significant changes.

From an admin perspective it would be good to see all of the document sites listed on a dashboard. This could probably be done with some additional configuration but it shouldn't be a lengthy process for folks now starting on SharePoint.

Pros

The always available data and collaboration between users is essential. Also the ability to use the office online product to edit is a great way to work on documents on the fly.

Cons

Setting up the document sites with the folder share was not too straight forward as the list of document sites are not displayed in the admin portal

Microsoft SharePoint CMS for Managing content and documents of organization

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

If you are small organization, always prefer SharePoint Online services and SharePoint on-premise is recommended for big organization usually.

Pros

1. Since it is Microsoft product, Area of development and support is very vast and also accepted globally.
2. Guidelines for installing and configuring SharePoint is very easy to compare to other CMS available in the market.
3. From performance and security point of view, SharePoint is the best product for any organization.
4.Can be easily integrated with other Microsoft product such as Outlook, Azure, Yammer, Office, and PowerBI etc.
5. SharePoint also has Foundation version (till SharePoint 2013) for free to target smaller organization.
6. With the release of SharePoint Online on cloud, It provides more flexibility and less IT team work for any organization, especially for a smaller organization.

Cons

1. Maintaining SharePoint on-premises for smaller organisation becomes very difficult and costly because it requires more technical support.
2.SharePoint may have added customization options for those who wants to implement intranet system, Microsoft actually discourages this from happening. The ease of customization with custom designs, especially from a home page perspective, can help businesses better tailor their intranet experience to the individual workers.
3. To work SharePoint search efficiently, Lots of internal customization is needed.
4. Since for SharePoint online, Microsoft is maintaining server, which ends in providing less scope for customizing.
5.Migration from old SharePoint version to new is little complex and requires lots of efforts

After some infrastructure issues we are now moving the customers portal to a web based, SaS, simple task management tool.
Shared Point may be useful for large companies with good IT support but in our case I guess it would be a good move.

Pros

It seems to have all features and functionality you want, but it is not really easy to setup and get it working properly.
We were using SharePoint Portal as the main collab tool solution (both internally and also with customers).

Cons

All the config were done internally and although it works I guess it is too complex to setup and use.
I spend about 3 hours to setup the customer portal and upload the tasks (no easy way to import project templates).
Once imported it is also difficult to update the tasks and there is no easy way to track time.

Sharepoint as Collaboration Tool

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A
Pros

My company utilized Sharepoint both for document sharing and as a collaboration tool, particularly with allowing people to claim different tasks off of a shared spreadsheet. For those purposes, Sharepoint was perfectly adequate.

Cons

In terms of document sharing, it was no better than Box.com or Google Drive, with my organization moved to. In terms of collaboration, it also lags behind Drive. It also had a frequent issue where it would generate large numbers of e-mails to users; for example, it would resend every single post that a user had logged on one of its discussion board, flooding user e-mail and hampering employee productivity. It's possible this was an inaccurate setting on our end, but it was still often vexing and distracting.

Worldwide collaborative ability, and great workflows that ensure consistency in common processess.

Pros

It can do so much. At the basic level it is a library that you can access securely from all over the world. It can house all kinds of documents and video. It is collaborative, as you can share documents and track who has them checked out at any point. More advanced utilizations include interactive websites and SharePoint workflows (one of its best features!). We moved everyone's departmental files from a shared drive to SharePoint. SharePoint comes with everything turned off initially, so security is straight forward as you set it up. No one has access to anything until you allow it, and you can't see what you don't have access to. It is best to hire a SharePoint expert to set it up, as it's complexity is considerable.

Cons

If you have financial people who create file paths through a dozen folders, you will have trouble storing these items in SharePoint without modifying the folder structure, as there is a limit on file path characters. You cannot store a database in SharePoint, and if you turn on Versioning it will take up a lot more space.

My team uses SharePoint to store and share our SOPs for ourselves, and the rest of the team.

Pros

I was the SP admin before our company changed hands. Reliability is what I like most. We type up SOPs for everyone on our massive team, and keep them organized on SP. It is good to know that whenever an issue arises for something that may have happened last year, or we need a configuration for an old switch that has crashed, I feel confident that it will be right where it is supposed to be on SP. and I personally have never seen SP crash in the last 5 years.

Cons

The interface has changed with O365, and it is a little more difficult to work with, but this is not really a con, because once if figured it out I had zero complaints

Less complicated infrastructure management.

Pros

SharePoint is relatively simple to use to configure sites, user groups, and the like. Like most CMS's, it can have a default "look and feel" across just about all aspects of a site or group of sites. It's integration with Office 365 is thorough. If you have basic needs for hosting an internal site, with not particular need for complicated integrations or workflows, SharePoint Online is a viable option.

Cons

Unlike the on-premise version of SharePoint, you do have a number of restrictions with SharePoint Online. There is no access to certain logs for troubleshooting. There is no direct access to the database driving the site. Certain automated processes are limited in scope and frequency.

Some general SharePoint issues include workflows that are somewhat handicapped in what they can do. The built-in workflows are very limited in scope, and SharePoint Designer, used to create more advanced SharePoint workflows, has not been updated in years. Microsoft seems to be pushing customers to use Flow, which costs extra and has a different feature set than SharePoint Workflows. Flow seems much more geared towards integration with other, third party sites and platforms, while being very limited in what it can achieve within SharePoint itself. SharePoint Workflows, on the other hand, can perform many more tasks native to SharePoint, but are very limited with any sort of integration to other sites or platforms. There are odd quirks to SharePoint Workflows, though. Such as the ability to copy a file from one library to another, but not move the file. There's also not a method within SharePoint Workflows to move or copy a file to a specific folder within a library. You can use the built-in content organizer rules to handle these tasks, but it add's complexity and is limited in frequency.

The thing I like the most is just the sheer number of things you can do with the current version of Sharepoint. You can use it to organize files in your company across different groups, create a basic, or complex, intranet website as a nice landing page, and that just begins to touch on what you can do. It does get a little overwhelming, but when you have a good, clear plan of what you need to do, Sharepoint can get it done.

Cons

The thing I like the least is the syncing client. It has a lot of issues frequently and doesn't allow certain characters in file names, which has caused numerous issues for myself. While you can theoretically keep up to 10,000 files synced, the software does not perform well beyond about 5,000.

Overall the benefits of using SharePoint out weigh the issues I have with it and the software is a wonderful tool for teams to use to keep track of not only files, but calendars, meeting notes, tasks and much more.

Pros

The best part about using SharePoint is all of the different ways you can setup file shares and team sites. There are so many tools and resouces available for making sure you are connected with your respective teams. I really like the calendar and task list and the ability to customize the site so its not just another version of Windows explorer.

Cons

SharePoint like OneDrive does not allow you to use file names with special characters like !@#$%&*()+ so you end up having to rename the files to so they will upload. Other file share tools like Dropbox do not have this problem and I wish Microsoft would fix this issue. The other issue I have with SharePoint is navigation back and forth into certain pages can be awkward from different views and unless you're a power user of SharePoint you may not know enough to set it up to work easily.

Pros

It offers a great deal of customization that we have found extremely nice.

Our employees are able to use SharePoint as a hub of sorts that gives them a one stop shop where they can access all of their various information.

Cons

There isn't much to dislike, but one of the major cons is the setup of capabilities. We've run into many employees who find it hard to navigate the software.

Pros

It allows the entire team to access large files and able to organize the files any way that the teams want them setup.

Cons

It takes a long time to implement, and small decisions in the beginning are hard to change at the end of the deployment, and often result in needing to rebuild the child site

One certain benefit is how scalable SharePoint 2016 is without the danger of lowering performance. There¿s been an increase in max file sizes and the number of items that can be indexed, along with a bigger list threshold. Plus you have precise control over license costs per staff member¿ideal for small or growing teams.

Pros

These are just some of the pros that we have liked about Sharepoint. It is a central repository / one point of truth to store and share all your company data. Sharepoint complies with ISO standards and other legislation, which is a plus. Sharepoint enforces standards, publish policies, and provides audit trails on your changes. Sharepoint provides instant reporting 24/7 and consolidates data to get better reports. You can create electronic forms to help reduce the paper trail. You can communicate from a single source to give everyone the same message. It is scalable and can address multiple business requirements thereby saving you money.

It integrates with most other software, so if you can use SharePoint for your business solutions, you can still surface the data from other applications in SharePoint.

Cons

This is an expensive solution. You need the right expertise to get it set up correctly. It does require a lot of configuration and training. In larger companies it can take 3 ¿ 5 years to successfully rollout an adopt. The licensing model is very complex.
