What is Sharepoint?

SharePoint is a web-based collaborative platform that blends with Microsoft Office. Since it's launched in 2001, SharePoint has been essentially sold as a tool for managing documents and as a storage system for documents, but the product is highly configurable and its usage varies considerably among individual organizations.

The Microsoft SharePoint is simply a tool for the management of documents and a team collaboration platform that helps businesses and companies manage their archives, documents, reports and other content that are very important to the business process. Industries in all areas and forms use SharePoint, but the platform concentrates on the management of an enterprise. SharePoint use cases can be seen in any department that is within an organization.

The SharePoint Server is presented to organizations that are looking for greater control over the behavior or design of SharePoint. This product is installed on their customers' IT infrastructure. Sharepoint receives fewer frequent updates but they have access to a much broader set of features and customization capabilities. There are three editions of the SharePoint Server and they are, Standard edition, Enterprise edition, and Foundation edition (free version) which was discontinued in 2016. These servers may be run as normal virtual/cloud servers or as other hosted services
