What is SharePoint

Organizations use Microsoft SharePoint to create websites. You can use it as a secure place to store, organize, share, and access information from any device.  All you need is a web browser, such as Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Firefox.

Why you still need Sharepoint (Blog by Greg Zelfond - good insights and a few of his reasons shown below)

  1. OneDrive is a personal repository for a given user, not a shared SharePoint resource, and definitely not a substitute for an Intranet.
  2. As projects come and go, Teams will be archived, and new Teams will be created, but Intranet is something permanent that will be there no matter what!
  3. Viva Connections is not a substitute for Intranet.

Major reasons for Sharepoint: A permanent location for information, information based on org chart and structure, gateway to other sites and teams, the go to site for reliable information, employee onboarding, and a place where everyone is welcome.
