Sharepoint

What is Sharepoint?

SharePoint is a web application framework and platform developed by Microsoft, it integrates intranet, content management and document management.

SharePoint comprises a multipurpose set of Web technologies backed by a common technical infrastructure. By default, SharePoint has a Microsoft Office-like interface, and it is closely integrated with the Office suite. The web tools are intended for non-technical users. SharePoint can provide intranet portals, document & file management, collaboration, social networks, extranets, websites, enterprise search, and business intelligence. It also has system integration, process integration, and workflow automation capabilities.

It can be used as a secure place to store, organize, share, and access information from almost any device. These sites are easily accessed from a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Firefox.

If you are interested in saving and sharing personal documents with selected individuals, then we recommend that you use OneDrive from your account.  For further information on this product, please refer to the information listed within the section titled "OneDrive" located on the left of this screen.

If you are interested in developing a site to be accessed by the general population and/or the information residing within it needs to be managed by others within the organization, then an independent SharePoint site is recommended.
