There are thousands of projects done by Office 365 and SharePoint consultants across the planet since many years and yet I haven’t found a list of business scenario oriented IT.
Imagine a list of projects done using Office 365 and SharePoint, classified by technologies, business objective or even number of users etc.
This would inspire new ideas… Such as those sites but adding the technology to it :
Share your experience
That is what I hope WE CAN achieve. Please share your experience in this file and maybe one day we could create such a site or even ask Microsoft to enrich their web sites with consultants / developer experience
Do you also feel it misses such a list in the community? What else is missing to help you recommend solutions to your customers/company?
Some examples of business scenario from the file
