SharePoint is Microsoft’s collaboration and document management platform. Its the best selling Microsoft product ever!
Thats quite a statement coming from the worlds largest software vendor. The capabilities of SharePoint are far greater than what we can describe in a short textbox.
Some large companies run their entire organisation through SharePoint, and some micro companies just use it for their day to day document management features.

We are ready to answer your questions.
What is Microsoft SharePoint?
SharePoint Online is a cloud-based service that helps organizations share and collaborate with colleagues, partners, and customers.
With SharePoint, you can access internal sites, documents, and other information from anywhere—at the office, at home, or from a mobile device. Before you dive into building and configuring your organization’s SharePoint environment, there are a few things you should think about.
For example, how will you manage sites with the objective to collaborate (team sites) and those with the objective to broadcast and share content for viewing (communication sites)
We’ve divided the planning process into four steps. With each step, you’ll find helpful resources to guide your decisions and get you better acquainted with SharePoint.
A traditional document storage facility is usually a folder on a server somewhere. The reason why SharePoint is more effective than the traditional method is because it brings context around the folder itself by tracking versions of the document. For example, in a traditional folder setup, you can’t have a running version history for each document or see any changes to the file name. Whereas with SharePoint, there’s more information provided about the file. It’s not just some file sitting in a folder; it’s an evolving piece of information that has a history as well as context.
In the past you might send a group email and copy everyone. The problem with that approach is a lot of information gets ignored or even lost, so some people might not get the information they need. For example, maybe you lost a company document and you missed an important discussion. Or maybe you did read it but afterwards it was very difficult to find and reference that information. SharePoint brings collaboration to the table so that all staff can see the important information and communication accordingly.
This can range from things such as updates from the CEO to important meetings or events. SharePoint brings all the information to one internal place, so staff can quickly find the information they need. Other use cases might be general warnings about customers or even incidents that everyone needs to be aware of. With SharePoint, simply post the message and everyone can access it from there. Forget email or announcement boards; simply post it on SharePoint.
SharePoint is really designed around getting the organisation into a central point where they can collaborate. This is particularly important for organisations that are not geographically connected. With some branches working in a very isolated format, SharePoint provides staff with the ability to connect with each other via a portal. Where in the past some staff might only interact with the company during a company meeting, SharePoint brings those people together, so everyone can work together, all the time. Collaboration fosters innovation and builds a company culture that spawns creative ideas.
Why Microsoft SharePoint is Important
SharePoint’s core functions are:
A) To store documents in a more effective format than a regular folder system
B) Bring an organisation together so that everyone receives critical information that is relevant to them.

The team at Dolphin Networks have been superb from start to finish. They took, understood and delivered our brief with no fuss, and have created a SharePoint intranet that we’re all very proud of. The technical side of SharePoint can be fairly daunting for inexperienced users, but Andy and his team have been endlessly patient, helpful and receptive to our needs. We couldn’t recommend them more highly.

Challenges of Microsoft SharePoint
Along with the benefits of Microsoft SharePoint, there also comes some challenges, which include:
- Support for certain industry standards – SharePoint’s records-management capabilities give it the ability to save documents for legal or historic reasons. This can be a challenge in some industries (medical and financial) where there are complex regulatory requirements for record keeping. In those cases, you should consult a professional about an industry-specific solution.
- Customise out of the box with third-party solutions – Some organisations won’t find what they need out of the box. A third-party solution can help you build something you want. This can be easily achieved if you work with an IT service provider that has SharePoint experience.
Whatever your project or requirement you can be sure that SharePoint will be the platform of choice to service your needs with its remarkable built-in features and also the ability to use it as a bespoke development platform.
