SharePoint is different things to different people.

At its core it makes it easier for people to work together to share and manage information. As organisations expand so does the amount of files that they have to organise and keep. All of this makes it difficult to keep track of documents and their locations. SharePoint in essence helps you to get around this problem by allowing you to store and share your files in a central site. You will have a secure place to organize, share, and access information from almost any device.

What is SharePoint
SharePoint was first launched by Microsoft in 2001. Since its release its market size has grown significantly and is expected to continue to expand. As a web application platform it allows companies to do many different things, or to do the same thing in many different ways. It is closely integrated with the MS Office suite and its most recent release has significantly broader capabilities that previous versions. You can interactively input, download and track data which can be used to help managers make better decisions. The web tools it holds are designed to be usable by non-technical people and allows users to manage documents from start to finish, publish reports and store information on areas like key contacts, billing information and logistics.
