Would recommend any organizations looking to implement SharePoint (either edition) develop a pool of trained site owners and limit who is given design and full control permission.

Pros

Widely used platform that is adaptable to most internal requirements for knowledge management and collaboration.

Cons

SharePoint 2010 is not mobile friendly and requires upgrade to 2013 or 2016 edition to enable better integration for mobile viewing/editing documents.

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.

Many companies use SharePoint in a lot of ways. You can use it for exchanging files with customers, as a training LMS (learning management system), for tracking workplace injuries, and more).

Pros

Easy, flexible.

Cons

Not specially designed for any one thing.

Advice to Others

Not a bad thing to try for any number of reasons before paying lots of money for specific software tools.

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.

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.

After years of avoiding SharePoint in favor of small utilities, my international network deployed a SharePoint instance for us. For this use I am in a larger network with many subteams, with use cases for many but not all of SharePoint's capabilities.

Pros

SharePoint is a classy product, fully developed with outstanding capabilities. I like the groups one can set up - we have many, each teams working on various tasks. Each has access to a group calendar, documents, discussion forum, and much more. The navigation bar across the top serves as the key way to move around from group to group as well as get back "home." There are add-ons to SharePoint that we use as well, dashboards and more, that add to its value. It's a full-fledged product that functions well.

Cons

We have found that we must have a dedicated person managing our SharePoint instance - someone who really knows his/her way around the product, so that he/she can help us use its great potential. So you will have to have someone really invest in getting the skills of knowing the product as it can't run on its own easily.

Advice to Others

SharePoint is ideal for larger, more complex teams - where its features really start to shine.

As the SharePoint admin for a small company. I was able to setup and configure the server quickly. My users were able to learn and use it in a short period of time. Overall it was a good experience.

Cons

I would have to say the overall cost. Itbwas worth the value, but the software was expensive and we had to purchase a new server with enough speed and space to run it.

It is easy to share documents throughout the organization. Not everyone in our organization can post documents so that limits our ability, but the administrators are pretty good about uploading the documents needed.

Pros

I like that each department can make sharepoint individual for their needs. The search function is very useful to find documents and words in documents. The ability to store lots of different documents and then use sharepoint as an online library is very convenient.

Cons

Its not easy to always find the document you are looking for. When I search, I get every document with that word in the document or the title.

Pros

SharePoint offers organizations great flexibility, easy to use functionality for document retention and storage, team sites, calendars, and much more.

Cons

Can be difficult to learn security and permissions for new users. If functionality is locked down by your organization it can severely limit capabilities of the tool.

Collaboration and the ability to automate processes is the biggest advantage of using this software.

Pros

It has great collaboration features to get people working together, even when they aren't near each other physically. My current company uses SharePoint as an intranet where there is a section for each department and we have used SharePoint to make paper forms digital which are now stored in databases. This is only one of many ways that we have automated processes and actually got to the point where it is our main internal portal.

Cons

I use the cloud version so there are a lot of limits when it comes to control. There are also item limits and resource limits within workflow that put a cap on the amount of resources you can use. Sometimes this makes it difficult to develop a solution or meet the requirements of a project.
