SharePoint can serve many functions, but it needs clear governance and business buy-in. Navigating a path to success is difficult for most enterprises for several reasons:
- Most SharePoint deployments suffer in one of five areas: content management, workflow, administration, mobile, or social.
- The problems with SharePoint are inherent in the generalist nature of the product, but the solution must be specific based on use case, budget, and risk tolerance.
- These areas often require a third-party solution, or extensive customization, to ensure that the investment in SharePoint is not wasted.
The issues with SharePoint are often due to the speed at which it grows; either too fast or too slow. Manage these issues by understanding what the problem areas are and what options exist to fix the issues.
