Microsoft SharePoint

What it is and why is it important?

Microsoft SharePoint is an enterprise-grade business collaboration and content management platform. It is a top choice of many Australian organisations for digitising their workplace. It is widely used for document and content management, records management, business process automation, staff onboarding, ticketing system and many other custom applications. It is available on-premises, cloud, or hybrid setup, providing organisations with deployment flexibility.
