What do you think of SharePoint?

SharePoint has conquered the enterprise intranet. Although the conquest is never as bloody nor expensive as more invasive conquests, such as the Mongols under Genghis Khan, intranet citizens are not always thrilled by the new system and structure under Gates Khan. SharePoint is present in 80% of the Fortune 100; and plays a prominent intranet role in about 70% of knowledge worker intranets (either powering the main intranet portal, or delivering associated collaboration sites and/or document repositories).

ShareFile gives you all of the features of cloud providers, but in an on-premises solution. Therefore, you can securely share files externally without storing your data in the cloud.

With Filenet and Datacap we can accept documents in various formats seamlessly without user intervention. • Stability Issues: We are in the early stages of implementation of this solution. We have not encountered any stability issues • Previous Solutions: We were looking for a data solution because the other one was sort of cramping our style. It could be accessed only via limited workstations, so we were looking for another data storage solution. • Other Solutions Considered: We...
