According to Wikipedia, SharePoint is a web-based collaborative platform that integrates with Microsoft Office. Launched in 2001, SharePoint is primarily sold as a document management and storage system, but the product is highly configurable and usage varies substantially between organisations.

Due to the highly configurable nature of SP and the multitude of versions available, we offer a vast collection of classic and moder SP information within this category which covers everything from Enterprise Users of the latest SP Release.

Therefore, this category is broad too, and is full of handy tips, tricks and advise. Check out some of the Step by Step blogs or learn with our eBooks, How To videos and Webinars.

Employing SharePoint as the platform for the organisation’s new intranet, you face at least one very decisive question: Will you build the new SharePoint intranet from the ground up or will you employ a standard intranet solution??
