SharePoint Online – it was weird when it came out, it’s been unstable for years, but it’s the portal solution by Microsoft we all love and cherish. It’s taken the whole ecosystem a few years to mature to a point where it finally became the number one choice for enterprise collaboration, and with its buddies like Microsoft Teams, the prime option for all kinds of communication & internal publishing needs as well.
My experience with SharePoint Online started around the end of 2013, when I started modernizing the full-trust farm solutions my employer had back in the day. The app, or add-in model, was just a bit frustrating to work with, but with updates it become usable as well. And nowadays, it’s definitely the go-to solution instead of self-hosted on-premises.
But what does Microsoft say about this?
What is SharePoint Online – according to Microsoft?
SharePoint Online is a cloud-based service that helps organizations share and collaborate with colleagues, partners, and customers. With SharePoint, you can access internal sites, documents, and other information from anywhere—at the office, at home, or from a mobile device.
SharePoint itself is almost 2 decades old, and SharePoint Online has seen over half a decade of usage as well. That means that SharePoint Online, at this point, is a battle-hardened tool for collaboration and communication.
