The Sharepoint alternative for G Suite users

Sharepoint is becoming a
digital workplace for Office users

Though it will ultimately need more collaboration and social features to compliment it, the latest versions of Sharepoint allow integrated editing of Word documents, Excel sheets and other O365 apps.

Conclusion 1

Sharepoint is a static communication platform

As Yammer takes care of the social features, Sharepoint itself acts mainly as an internal website and news tool.

Conclusion 2

Sharepoint does not have collaboration features

Though the people directory is there, user creation is limited and you can’t (video) call through the platform. There is no integrated chat functionality either.

Conclusion 3

Sharepoint is for top-down, static communication in an Office 365 environment

It’s a robust and powerful tool that often requires IT and admin support to create new content. User-rights management is thorough and creation is limited. There is no G Suite integration.
