SharePoint Intranet Technology Used by Winners

There are nine technology platforms used by winners, and the clear winner is SharePoint.

Why SharePoint intranet/Office 365 has such a big market share, and why we have chosen it for building LS Intranet?

SharePoint Intranet Customization

Each customer has own needs. That’s why customization is so important. With SharePoint intranet, you can customize everything you see on a screen, and non-technical staff can do the most of the work.

Software Environment

A lot of organizations use Active Directory (e.g. 95% of Fortune 1,000 companies) for user management and Microsoft Exchange for mailing. When you launch your intranet, one of the first steps is to create or sync user profiles and manage them. SharePoint intranet and Office 365 have native support for Active Directory, and that’s why you will have no pain with this issue.

Moreover, when it comes to open or edit Word document / Excel worksheet / PowerPoint slide deck, Office 365 and SharePoint intranet have seamless integration with these popular office applications. Your user experience will be amazing, and you will get the most from all services and programs.

 

SharePoint Intranet Technology

Community

When you launch your intranet software, you will have to develop and support it. You need to train or hire technical staff to make it possible, or to contract with a third-party supplier. The bigger is the number of technical specialists and suppliers, the better is a quality of its services. And of course, large community means finding answers easier.

There are more than one million SharePoint intranet developers around the world and millions of professionals who know this platform good enough to create business solutions.

SharePoint Intranet Reliability

A big vendor means huge budgets on R&D and support. Microsoft is one of the Top3 publicly traded companies around the world with a market capitalization of more than $500 billion.
