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'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.

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 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.

Too many versions being released in a short time period. Too much time being devoted to migration planning.

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.

Annoyingly, many new Office 365 apps always end up being only US locale for the first year of their life. Microsoft needs to realise that most of their customers are not in the USA.
You still need a bit of expertise to add branding.
The company also needs to make sure that their policies are dictating how information is stored and used, instead of letting SharePoint take control.

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.
