Uses Of SharePoint

SharePoint is widely used by medium and large businesses. It is a multi-faceted solution. It is used for document control and enterprise content management at it’s most simple. However, it’s functionality is such that it can be used for numerous other tasks. It offers the ability to set up and run wikis and share contacts. It will also alert you when other users are online so that you can initiate a ‘chat sessions’ or instant messaging. It also allows users to set up personal web pages which can give others within their organisation an introduction to who they are and what their role is. Other uses include inventory management, blogs, meeting management and dashboard maintenance. SharePoint can be used extremely widely. It also incorporates a search function and can be used to produce workflow solutions for organisations. As it is such a flexible platform individual IT departments can configure it for their own organisation’s specific purposes.

Background & Overview

SharePoint was first introduced in 2001. Subsequent releases of new SharePoint functionality have followed the Office release cycle. So new versions have been made available in 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013. Initially the uptake of SharePoint was relatively slow. Since the release of SharePoint 2010, which was a signficant improvement on previous versions uptake has been increasingly rapid.
This has partly been a result of improved functionality and ease of use as newer versions of SharePoint have been introduced and partly as a result of people understanding and acknowledging that benefits of the functionality that it offers.
