September 7, 2016 | Author: | Posted in Technology

With organizations growing in numbers today, keeping a tab of the workflow between the team is a daunting task. And considering the deadlines they have to be met, it makes work management even more chaotic and unsystematic. To avoid irregularities in work, companies are spending thousands of dollars on countless teamwork management tools. Some of them have their pros and cons but still lack the efficiency to offer the best. Regardless of the plethora of collaboration tools available today, Microsoft’s Sharepoint is still regarded as simplest and efficient file management and collaboration tool and is assembled with many other features. It’s no surprise why many IT institutions today are still offering Sharepoint training to their students.

Sharepoint was first released in the market in the year 2001. Since then, Microsoft has made many improvements in it. Sharepoint assembles a host of features like enterprise document and document management, Intranet and social network, collaboration software, file hosting service and custom web applications. Although Sharepoint may sound like any other ordinary collaboration tool but it is not. Sharepoint is a unique platform that is installed on the back-end system and shared across the network where you are connected to it. There are other associated programmes that can be installed in the desktop like Sharepoint designer and Sharepoint workspace. But to interact with Sharepoint, you have to use a browser or Microsoft office.
