Microsoft SharePoint Software


 

Offered as both an on-premise or a web-based solution, Microsoft SharePoint 2013 helps organization collect and analyze key business data in order to gain an accurate, actionable view of operations and the company as a whole. It can be combined with existing business management software, such as Dynamics CRM or Dynamics ERP, as well as Microsoft Office, providing a powerful, intuitive end-user experience.

Users across the organization can quickly and easily monitor and analyze critical business data from a PC, smartphone or the Internet, and this anytime, anywhere access can be tailored to a company's changing needs. You can choose from an online subscription, software installed on a local server or a hybrid of both, optimizing IT resources while also controlling costs.

Using Microsoft SharePoint users from across the company can collaborate easily and effectively by setting up websites to share information. Using the comprehensive set of tools provided within the software, companies can build sites that range from internal team sites, a partner extranet and a customer portal, all built on a single infrastructure that streamlines site management.

In addition to creating websites, SharePoint allows users to manage documents through their entire lifecycle as well as publish dynamic, collaborative reports. With its interactive dashboards and scorecards, users within the organization can quickly see, and then address, needs specific to their department and the company as a whole.

Microsoft SharePoint 2013 is a must-have for companies looking for a business intelligence solution that increases collaboration while gaining accurate, actionable business insights.

SharePoint is a good tool for companies locked into the Microsoft Office platform. The tool integrates very well with all MS Office applications - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook - and makes it possible for staff members to collaborate with each other, exchange notes with each other, hold meetings, and drive business processes. Microsoft has been updating the tool since the time they launched it in the market and built a pretty solid ecosystem around it. You can integrate SharePoint with practically any enterprise software. SharePoint has competition in Liferay and there are pros and cons in using either of these applications.

Pros

SharePoint is very well supported by Microsoft and also by a large number of established software companies. You can integrate SharePoint with practically any enterprise software. The software is easy to deploy and scale in any enterprise. Users can get started with SharePoint within minutes and learn the advanced features of the tool in a couple of days.

Cons

Being a Microsoft product that runs only on the Windows platform, SharePoint is vulnerable to all the security problems associated with Windows. Additionally, the tool is very bulky and resource hungry.

Advice to Others

If you're deploying SharePoint for a geographically dispersed team, make sure to invest in the Riverbed WAN optimizer. You'll save yourself considerable headaches and recover the cost of the appliance within few months. Riverbed will cache SharePoint data at remote locations and provides access to the SharePoint resources at LAN speed.

Sharepoint is good in allowing all levels of IT folks to set up detailed custom workflows and document management practices.

Like any big complex tool, Sharepoint is decent, but does not go well into areas where it is not used to its full potential.

If the tool is architected in the right way, it really proves to be very powerful for project management and collaboration. It is definitely very secure.

Sharepoint has been helpful for updating the teams that I'm a part of. It's a good tool for sharing information with users who are spread out in multiple locations. I feel that I'm probably a basic user of the software, but I've found it to be relatively easy to use. Its features communicate well with each other, giving the user the ability to pull data rather effectively.

Pros

Good reporting features.

Cons

The overall design is a little dated.

Microsoft SharePoint restore eager business owners and innovative risk takers workforce agility across numerous Information Technology infrastructures. SharePoint is designed to help organize environment workflows and team agility. The software is sustainable and self directed with robotic approaches that encourage and inspire small business owner to leap forward with sustainable possiblities. The methodology is solid comprising professional development mirroring Software and System Full Life Cycle (SDLC) approaches. Personally, I feel Microsoft SharePoint roadmap future directives for business startups without much focus on the business owners. The software is powerful and supported by Microsoft team of qualified engineers; unlimited which help successful drive return of investment (ROI). I recommend the software to business owners to inspired and maintain a successful business environment with prime directives and strategies that secure profits within multidimentional industries.

Pros

Microsoft Sharepoint is the best software to build a business that capture future earnings, stakeholders attention, and professional dynamics advantages in social media while maintaining professional industries standards. I like the opportunities that can be built out to support and sustain any business environment.

Cons

Microsoft Sharepoint require more templates development; which support less experience project managers and project team leads. I think Microsoft should provide a team of qualified engineers that build out customer projects-request directly through Microsoft instead of encouraging third party vendors. This is a prime drawback for numerous small business owners and startups. The time it takes developing high-level templates to support and retain major corporate presence. This is a requirement which should be address by Microsoft. The major drawback for developing dynamic function templates often take to much time.

Advice to Others

My advice is to leap forward to Microsoft SharePoint if you want a dynamic and innovative future and presence. I advise you to establish a relationship with Microsoft Sharepoint Engineers. I have found they will support your requirements and maintain respectable presence for business success.

I've had positive experiences working with Sharepoint in the past. It allowed my team to work collaboratively together, in a way we hadn't been able to work in the past. I would recommend that other teams give it a shot.

Pros

Fairly easy to use, allows team members to share information quickly and easily amongst each other

Cons

Does need to be administrated effectively, otherwise can get messy

I used this product for multiple years during both undergraduate and graduate school for organizations I was involved in. Much like any Microsoft product, it is good for cost of use, but there are much better products out there. The capability of the software is extremely limited compared to other content management on the market. Additionally, Sharepoint becomes cluttered very fast. However, some might consider this a positive, because a large portion of the clutter comes from the fact that it integrates with EVERYTHING Microsoft. Therefore, it does allow ease of use from the different platforms. Overall, it is a reliable Microsoft product that gets the job done, but it is by no means the best product on the market.

Pros

Integrates easily and relatively easy to master

Cons

Clutter, limited capabilities

Advice to Others

I think this product is great for small offices and those that are not undertaking large amounts of project, but if you have more than four people, it is best to go to a different system.
