Introduction to SharePoint
What is SharePoint?
SharePoint is a robust, highly flexible, versatile, and secure web-based collaboration and document management system powered by Microsoft. SharePoint uses different applications and tools such as workflow applications, “List” databases, security features, and other web parts to allow business teams to connect and collaborate seamlessly and efficiently.
Benefits of using Microsoft SharePoint :
- Useful for collaboration
SharePoint provides a web-based space where users can upload a document to immediately be shared with other people. Users can also have their personal storage space called a OneDrive where no one can see a file they upload until they share it or allow others access to that document. Links to shared documents can also easily be sent through email, making it easy for users to quickly see what they want to see.
- Enhanced security
You can work with other team members and share documents inside and outside your organization without any worries. SharePoint has a strong data encryption and cloud backup to keep your data safe and secure. Users can set security settings to the individual file level, eliminating all security risks.
- Optimized content delivery
Users can create and submit content for approval in seconds. If you pre-schedule your content to go live on your website at a certain time, you will never have to wonder if your post has gone through the required review stages beforehand. If you’re an international company with multilingual content, Sharepoint can definitely help you.
- Increased productivity
When all your documents are on SharePoint, searching for what you need is as simple as a few clicks. You can organize each SharePoint site to include only the folders and subfolders you need. This way, you can easily find the source when you’re short on time and you have to make a quick business decision.
- Can be easily customized
SharePoint developers can build custom applications and connect them to the software with ease. This option gives your team members instant access to the tools they need to finish their tasks.
- Easy to use and understand
The software includes tools that allow you to progress without requiring a degree in computer science. Whether you need to build a website from scratch or update an existing one, you can do so with SharePoint.
