We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
It allows us to arrange and develop new ideas, then incorporate them into the portal. We can create a one stop information center, so people can access the information from one window.The web/mobile/portal integration was one of the features that we found most valuable, primarily because it reduced our development time.

It has helped us with storing all the documents, which means that people are not going to intervene. There is a way of extracting knowledge within documentation and tracking it. There are knowledge assets for where documentation is stored, indexed and searchable through SharePoint.The metadata services, the WCF service integration and the Voxel feature are three most valuable elements of this solution.Tech support tops off as excellent.It is very stable.The ability to have version control and co-editing is vital to our workflows.Helps with document collaboration and workflow.The product makes it easy to manage lists, forms, searching, and security. One of the most valuable features is its integration with Active Directory.It allows for simultaneous users to be on it.

Cons
It could be improved in terms of adding filters to some of the rules. Therefore, you can retain how long a document would need to stay in an archive.

Search can be improved a lot because we are always trying to compare it with Google Search. Beyond that, it would be helpful to tag the documents.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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It is a bit expensive.Their pricing model should be modified to include per user options instead of just servers/cores, etc.

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.
