The initial setup was very complex.I understand that some functions are lost when you store the information in a file system, so maybe that's a way SharePoint can improve.SharePoint sometimes cannot handle the amount of co-editing that we do.Needs improvement on the user interface.Processing data from multiple site collections is not easy as they reside in different databases.The management of the product/back-end is complex.It should have more user-friendly customization, as it still requires developers to get engaged and build sites.I would like it to be more compliant with global regulations. There are certain features which could be included that currently are not there, such as compliance and record management capabilities.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
The cost is expensive, but worthwhile.We have purchased add-ons to handle multiple site collections, form creation, and design.The data classification and search elements are cheap.The replacement costs for it are cheaper if you use only SharePoint.It is very expensive.​Licensing can be by server or by seat.As usual, Microsoft’s licensing structures don’t really seem to fit the needs of their products. This leads to always paying for a project you will never use fully or always be adding to.
