The Big Picture pt 2
SharePoint is an excellent knowledge management platform to consolidate all your document needs. Especially with guidance and governance.
SharePoint, and Office 365, work best when they are the focal point for information in your enterprise.
There are many worthy, and not-so-worthy contenders, vying for your users’ attention. The good and the bad.
File shares, Egnyte, DropBox, Box, GDrive, Documentum, Filenet.
Some of these support metadata, and some don’t. Of the ones that do, some support metadata better than the rest.
And then there are custom line of business applications that exist outside all of these.
If your corporate policy is to spread your information across many different technical stores and applications, it can be incredibly disorienting for users.
Instead consider bringing everything into a navigable place of work.
SharePoint and Microsoft Teams make the ideal way to bring the applications the users need into the context of where they work. (http://1jj.uk/spcasestudy1)
