Is it a good idea to replace MicroFocus Content Manager with Microsoft Sharepoint?



I work at a governmental institution. Currently, I'm researching whether we can replace Micro Focus Content Manager (for CMS) with Microsoft Sharepoint?

What's your opinion about it? Please also elaborate on "why".

Not if you are managing physical records in CM. You would need an add-in for M365 such as AvePoint Cloud Records or RecordPoint Records365. 

Both help another important issue - M365 Compliance and SharePoint Online are complex user interfaces. 

In a lot of organizations, records management staff don't have direct access to RM functions, with IT doing the administration based on service requests from IM. Both add-ins hand usability and RM functions back to the IM team.
