The confusing collection of various important data goes on and on. After all, none of the employees can tell you exactly what is kept on the network drives.
SharePoint - developed by Microsoft - helps to solve this exact problem. Sharepoint brings all of the company‘s collected data into one central information environment. The platform manages to structure simple and complex processes.
Collaboration throughout the company and on the web is thus facilitated. Users can freely decide how they want to manage their data. From an IT strategy perspective, SharePoint is a platform for the consolidation of different applications. For example: Enterprise Search, Business Intelligence, Enterprise Content Management, Web Content Management or Collaboration.
