Over three quarters of Fortune 500 companies use SharePoint.
SharePoint’s purpose is to make it possible for a business with employees and collaborators spread across multiple locations to work as effectively as if they were in a single office.
What does this mean?
SharePoint creates an office environment in the cloud. SharePoint operates as your intranet, it provides easy access to document and file sharing, it provides the tools for successful communication and collaboration and can connect your enterprise with outsiders to forge successful relationships.
SharePoint can also feed and manage extranets and public-facing websites, creating a powerful synchronicity and competitive edge for your business.
It’s like social media for business.
You can also use the data that is collected in SharePoint for analysis and to make informed business decisions which enhance productivity and growth potential.
What is the cloud?
The cloud is essentially another word for the Internet. Cloud computing allows users to store and access data and programs over the Internet instead of from your computer’s hard drive. This means that files and programs can be accessed anywhere you have an internet connection, rather than just on one computer or device.
