Misconceptions of Microsoft SharePoint


Since Microsoft introduced Sharepoint back in 2001 it has developed from being a basic web application framework into so much more. Its functions and capabilities in the 2010 and 2013 versions far outstrip what Sharepoint was originally created for, which was an Intranet service for collaboration, sharing and storage.

Due to this there are many misconceptions about the purpose of Sharepoint, which have been shared here by (contact page).

Microsoft Sharepoint is multifunctional; it is not just a place to store information, it is a great way for members of a team to be able to collaborate and share data, as well as keep in contact through social aspects such as joining conversations about blogs and liking articles.

Due to this, it is essential that everyone who is going to be using the software is fully aware of how to use it. There is no point in integrating Sharepoint into your business if no one on your staff has a clue what to do with it. And let’s face it, Microsoft loves updating their systems, so training should be ongoing otherwise you are wasting a great piece of software.

If you are not fully aware whether or not your company needs Sharepoint, speak to a Sharepoint specialist. Don’t just buy the software and expect your IT department to sort it all out for you. Sharepoint is not an IT issue, it is not up to your IT department to install it or manage it. You may find after some research that Sharepoint is not for you; it’s not for everyone.
