What is Microsoft SharePoint?

SharePoint is Microsoft’s collaboration and document management platform, and is the best-selling Microsoft product ever! Some large companies run their entire organization through SharePoint and some micro companies just use it for their day to day document management features.

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.

SharePoint brings context around a folder by tracking versions of the documents within. This reason makes SharePoint effective and stand out from the traditional document storage facility, where it is usually a folder stored on a server somewhere. 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 a document sitting in a folder; it’s an evolving piece of information that has a history as well as context.
Working as part of a team requires constant communication, usually done through a group email where everyone is copied in. The problem with this 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.
SharePoint brings all the information to one internal place, so staff can quickly find the information they need. This can range from things such as updates from the CEO to important meetings or events. 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 organization into a central point where they can collaborate. This is particularly important for organizations 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 organization together so that everyone receives critical information that is relevant to them.

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, consulting a professional about an industry-specific solution, is the best option.

Customize out of the box with third-party solutions – Some organizations 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.

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.
