Please share with us so that your peers can learn from your experiences.
We use this solution for intranet, extranet, web site, content management, collaboration, integrations, eCommerce, inventory, portfolio, project, and process management.
We use this solution for supporting software development programs and projects.
I have been consulting with this solution, combined with SQL server, since 2005. The majority of my consulting at that time changed from Active Directory and C++ to SQL Server and SharePoint.
Our primary use case is for file sharing. SharePoint is implemented in our environment for files and user sharing. We also use it for simultaneous editions.
For intranet and file sharing and internal communications.
It is used to support Intranet. It has good content handling and MS Office integration, but poor user experience.
* Shared document repository and communication tool for projects and teams * I love SharePoint lists; they are pretty flexible and easy to create and export data from. * You can also restrict the view to customize to specific audiences. * It is also easy to create subsites, and security can be applied to individual pages.
Project management activities.
We have a customized solution called TeamCenter. The technology behind it is SharePoint. The use case is to distribute project mandates among team members, track and collaborate on the work that has been done. It creates the work breakdown, and assigns tasks, manages the workflow accordingly. We are able to check what is being done, who is been handling it, and where the workflow is at right now. It eases control, messaging, and provides a common view where we are at.
Team place where sharing of documents and co-editing occurs.
To initially set up as part of a records management initiative. The company I was working for needed to better track and support how and where documents are located.
I use this solution for storing documents. It is a single sign-on with the identity system and so it will sign me on and I will upload, download some document, and share it with my colleagues at work.
It's used as the intranet portal. It is used to inform the users about upcoming activities in the company.
* Company intranet and extranet. * Enabling the employee workforce to be more efficient in their day-to-day work they need to deliver for the organisation.
I have been using SharePoint for over twelve years. It's a big solution comprising many services similar to an active directory installation with connections to Skype, Exchange services, metadata services and stuff like that, it can do basically everything you need in order to deliver something like a Twitter website or similar solutions. So I do not think that anything rivals SharePoint on the market. Maybe if a lot of effort is placed upon some WebLogic solutions, this may happen. But, this would need a lot of customizing.
Collaboration and document sharing are the primary reasons for using SharePoint. We have used the product in many government agencies for documents management, workflow, enterprise search, departmental solutions, Intranet, etc.
We use it for collaboration and document management in the process of developing proposal responses.
It's good but we are not using a lot of load in the system.
My primary use case is largely content management. The product is good.
Most departments use SharePoint for their own organizational homepages and their document repositories
Compared to other products, SharePoint is not only a content manager, but a wider product, like enterprise content management. You can use multiple components in SharePoint. Moreover, SharePoint is already moving to cloud, if you are using SharePoint online, which is cloud-based technology, it is more accessible.
The use case is based on internal processes. We want a central place for storing data, documents, and user processes, to automate processes. In this case, it's a financial program. All customers starting our financial program are automatically created on SharePoint. From there, all the documents that are related to each customer will be stored on SharePoint, and we then use it as a kind of a black box. You put everything in, you do not know where it is. Then we have other applications around it that give you information that you need. Or you can save it and, based on customer information or the kind of document, it knows where to store it on SharePoint.
Used as a site for staff to add records. It is integrated with RecordPoint in the back-end, so the staff did not have to work within an EDRMS.
We are a middle-sized company with around 200 users. We use SharePoint for some basic business processes: CRM, ECM, etc. Our maturity reached a certain level and it allowed for some further improvement.
* Document and data management * Information sharing across the organization * Collaboration * Knowledge management
Our primary use is document sharing.
