406,607 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
You can have conference calls with different parties using video and voice.
It has file storage, file sharing, a provisioning box, and a SharePoint profile for each user.
The most valuable feature for us is Microsoft Teams.
The flexibility of having a subscription for the Office software, rather than having any upfront costs is the best part of this solution.
The Power BI environment and the integration between Power BI and SQL are the solution's most valuable features. The integration between products is great.
The most valuable feature is Microsoft Teams.
What was most valuable for me was how simple this solution is to start using.
This is a unified business package that helps people be productive in working environments.
This solution has provided us with a collaborative workspace to allow everyone to work together and be on the same page.
The software is friendly to use for mixing data and analyzing it.
It's a very robust product.
The most valuable feature is the "Alert Me", which provides the ability to set an alert when content is either added or changed and that the alerts can be either real-time or aggregated for the day or the week.
The solution's most valuable features is its document management. It allows sharing with external users and integrates well with Office apps and Microsoft Flow.
The most valuable features for us are their document management list and hybrid forms. and We also use third party ad-dons to achieve workflows and other recent apps.
The level of stability is good.
The solution's most valuable aspects are its collaboration capabilities, its communications site and the innovation within the product itself.
The security sites need to be simplified and the technical support needs improvement.
Updates to the SQL server with better features are needed to compete with Oracle Database.
The pricing for this solution could be improved.
There are various things that you need to use PowerShell to do. That would be good. You could do them through the management portal, rather than through PowerShell. That's the biggest improvement I would like to see.
The solution's licensing framework needs improvement.
There are loads of holes in security and I'd like to see better integration with security products.
The admin panels have too few samples.
Flow and Form components can be improved individually, but it would be nice to see the product take the next step and operate as a unit rather than separate modules.
I would like to see more Agile techniques and seamless integration with other applications.
This solution is not very stable. It is useful to arrange data but it's not the best for big data. Sometimes we have issues with our reports as a result.
The product could be improved by accommodating different technologies, particularly integration.
The ability to preview files in different formats should be expanded to include formats such as embedded postscript (EPS), AutoCAD, and Adobe Acrobat PDF.
The solution needs to enable better sharing capabilities between users and external users. Several users also have problems with linking their emails to their Microsoft account.
I think these tools do a pretty good job. There is only one area of improvement. Maybe Microsoft can invest a little bit more into the ease at which integration can be done with other third party applications.
The solution is like a CRM, so the initial setup is complex. It takes a few days to deploy the solution and the length of time depends on how large the company's topology is and what the client's demands are.
The permission management features need improvement.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Now you can select different licenses, for example, if somebody doesn't need all of the features, it would cost $8 USD per month and if they didn't need the email application then it would cost $6 USD per month.
Compared to buying a license, it is much cheaper and a good buy.
Depending on which plan you purchase, there are a plethora of applications available to you.
There are some aggressive discounts offered by Microsoft for organizations that are not for profit, which we are, and it makes it quite attractive to consider.
One of the reasons why we don't recommend the cloud version of SharePoint is the cost. With the on premise version, you pay for the license once. For the cloud version, there is a recurring fee. It is very expensive. They expect everyone to pay $20 or $30 per user per month.
