Find out what your peers are saying about Microsoft 365 Business vs. SharePoint and other solutions. Updated: March 2020.
407,242 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.
The online editing capabilities, file sharing, auditing, information security, ease of solution management, and the easy user adaptation to the platform are the most valuable features.
The most valuable features are the Integrations, web site, and search.
This solution has helped us with the categorization, organization, management, discovery, and delivery of program and project related information.
For any organization with more than one person in it, if they are trying to organize things to let people in the company know what others are doing, then this solution is good for them.
The workflow feature is valuable because it enables us to cascade responsibilities.
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.
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.
The way to change the version of the files in SharePoint should be improved. The method of synchronizing files from local to cloud can also use improvement.
The areas of this solution that need improvement are the relationships between lists, cross-site web parts, and page-building tools.
This solution would benefit from the implementation of enhanced online forms and template development capabilities.
I would like a simpler, more cost-effective solution for connecting data sources with workflows and BI tools, or data mining tools.
Workflow is something that can become more intelligent.
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.
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.
For this type of solution, it is not wise to buy it without Software Assurance.
The pricing works for us.
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.
