We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
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.Information is much more readily available.SharePoint has made things easier with the increased functionality for building the portals, microsites, and total integration with Microsoft categories.SharePoint is already moving to cloud, if you are using SharePoint online, which is cloud-based technology, it is more accessible.It's stable. It's very widely used by companies. Also, the knowledge of the product has improved over the years, and by other companies that support it or are Microsoft SharePoint partners. So if there are problems, there's always a user or company that knows the information or can help you; even with very uncommon problems.

Cons
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.We would like more security features, like automating.There are some limitations on storage.

I would like to see a fancier user interface. That is one of the weak points of Yammer.Users need to be in the Acting Directory to exploit the features.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
