What is most valuable?

The metadata services, the WCF service integration and the Voxel feature are three most valuable elements of this solution. The Voxel feature, for obvious reasons, because you want to implement business processes and you do not want them to stop if the machine stops so they have to be automatically… more»

How has it helped my organization?

So if you want to have something like a business, or if you want to have something like a product catalog and you are selling something like Amazon, you want to uniquely identify your product like Amazon does it with its ASIM numbers and these to be identified with a name. So the service identifying… more»

What needs improvement?

I would be liking to see the talk features included in SharePoint because Microsoft effectively discontinued this talk and put something like logic apps but only for Azure, and most German companies do not like Windows Azure because they do not want to put that data into a cloud where everyone can… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The cost is expensive, but worthwhile.

What do you think of SharePoint?

There are in fact two versions of SharePoint: the on-premises version, SharePoint 2019, and SharePoint Online, which comes bundled in Office 365 (the Cloud). Though those with Office 365 automatically have the latest features in SharePoint Online; those with on-premises SharePoint, have to wait for the next release to get the latest and greatest. SharePoint’s greatest strength is it’s an all-in-one approach – it’s a portal, a content management system, a search engine, a social collaboration platform, a web development platform, and so much more. Its greatest weakness is that it’s an all-in-one solution – everything and the kitchen sink; a jack-of-all-trades, a master of none. Some argue that SharePoint is a “mile wide, but a foot deep.” It offers so much, but some features are seen as…

What do you think of SharePoint?

SharePoint is appreciated for its simplicity of use out-of-the-box, though derided for problems (and the expenses) customizing the user experience (design, navigation and information architecture). SharePoint is replete with functionality and applications, and is the most comprehensive intranet development platform on the market. It is, unfortunately, expensive, and most of the feature set that we use, and that our clients use, fall short of expectations, and often below best-of-breed. SharePoint isn’t a niche product that is supposed to be superb at web content management, or social networking; it’s a broad solution, one that has something for everybody; a solution that can please some, but not all. SharePoint’s greatest strength is that it’s an all-in-one solution – it’s a portal, a…

What is most valuable?

This solution is a workflow operating system with many metadata services. Information is taken and automatically triggers actions. The specific action is based on the information itself, which is used to calculate a complex answer that… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like a simpler, more cost-effective solution for connecting data sources with workflows and BI tools, or data mining tools. There are different tools for data mining and for data evaluation, but you have to be a skilled programmer… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

For this type of solution, it is not wise to buy it without Software Assurance. It depends on the customer, but most are using an agreement that covers four to ten free incidents per year. You really need that, and it's well-invested money.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anyone implementing this solution is to first try everything that you want to do in a virtual environment, with people who know how SharePoint is programmed. You need to understand the psychology of business users because most… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

When comparing this solution to other workflow operating systems like Oracle or BP Logix, I give this solution a ten out of ten.

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). This in spite of its history. SharePoint 2007 was a dog; SharePoint 2010 was a dressed-up dog; but SharePoint 2013 represented a leap forward to a more user-friendly, true web platform. SharePoint 2016 saw improvements, but perhaps the most significant advances have come in the…

What is most valuable?

The workflow feature is valuable because it enables us to cascade responsibilities. It cyclically keeps tabs on work and to what extent it has progressed, where it is stuck. That feature is really… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Now that this system has been put in place, we have email integration and a lot of work which we were doing manually is now done by Teamcentral, thanks to SharePoint, thanks to Microsoft.

What needs improvement?

There is always room for improvement. Workflow is something that can become more intelligent. I can't say to what extent intelligence can added, but I think there is always a scope for making it more… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing works for us.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not have a previous solution, other than mail-messaging and Excel.

What other advice do I have?

Workflow is helpful in the allocation of tasks in any close-knit teams, teams which are not sized beyond 20 to 25 at the most. If the workflow can be made more intelligent, adding value to the… more»

What is most valuable?

The online editing capabilities, file sharing, auditing, information security, ease of solution management, and the easy user adaptation to the platform are the most… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We had all the group files registered in SharePoint, including all local files. It was possible to share the information more securely.

What needs improvement?

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. I would also… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

about licensing, it depends a lot on what you need to do, there are many plans, options to choose from, you need to plan, enjoy 100% of what the product offers, so you can… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

What motivated us to switch solutions was the easy solution management, space scalability, additional features, easy synchronization, data security, and sharing control.

What other advice do I have?

Compared with other products, SharePoint is very good. We do not have other products that are as good as SharePoint. SharePoint is definitely richer in features with… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I used several products, but sharepoint brought them all together. I used windows file server, linux, file versioners, website to share documents.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I don't have experience in that area.

NO, client requires use of SharePoint for content management on IT programs and projects.

No
