SharePoint Intranet Then vs Now
- Published: 7 August 2019
We’ve discussed all things SharePoint however; we are going to take a step back and start from the beginning, comparing a SharePoint environment prior to a modern SharePoint Solution.
Office 365s SharePoint Solution is considered an industry leading platform for business intranets providing secure document management and collaboration functionalities.
A modern SharePoint environment is built on a cloud-based server creating a central access point for users to access information from any device and/ or location.
Think of a typewriter and an old school library filing system.
Now, imagine filing all your documents onto the computer without having the ability to easily shuffle and/ or edit the information within each file or folder. This is what an initial SharePoint Intranet looked like.
An initial SharePoint intranet took months of development, however, did not allow for changes or updates. The process of implementing new sections would have to once again start from scratch.
Today, a modern SharePoint Solutions environment provides developers and users with a seamless experience for quick adaptability and flexibility which is required by today’s society and everchanging identity, brand and environments.
SharePoint’s modern user experience is built on the premise of centralising all content and information. A modern SharePoint environment makes it easier for anyone to create beautiful, dynamic sites and pages that are also mobile-friendly.
- Centralised point of contact for sharing information, communication and collaboration
- Empowers sharing and collaboration on projects and content across all devices and locations
- Enables powerful enterprise searches to find files, sites and people
- Allows for access to intranets, team sites and shared content via the SharePoint mobile application for Android, iOS and Windows
- Automat business processes and workflows with notifications and alerts
Every year SharePoint endeavours to increase usability through familiar, user-friendly interface experiences which further optimise the structure and efficiency of a server.
