Companies are increasingly focussing on getting the right information at the right time and place. Microsoft SharePoint is used, if other providers cannot offer the necessary flexibility. In those cases SharePoint serves as an enhancement to other applications in diverse use cases.
SharePoint is part of Office365. With SharePoint Online you benefit from all the advantages of SharePoint without having to operate the Hard- and Software yourself. However, SharePoint Online does not fit for every Business. Clients with complex requirements are better of using the locally hosted rather than the cloud version. With SharePoint Microsoft offers a flexible platform for collaboration, document management, intranet or specific applications for selected business units. This creates a workplace where employees can work on content, data and news simultaneously and are there always up-to-date.
