More than three fourths of the Fortune 500 is using Microsoft SharePoint and many others besides them too. Even though many of us may have had the experience of working on the SharePoint, do we know what exactly the Microsoft SharePoint is?
What is Microsoft SharePoint?
SharePoint is a platform that ties together multiple programs, systems and devices of an organization having hundreds of employees, so as to coordinate their activities with the same sync and agility as twenty people working out of a small company.
It isn’t a software that is installed on computer systems but an entire back end system that integrates document management, content management, intranet and a host of activities of an organization from wherever the employees are situated.
