Content Management System Review

About SharePoint

SharePoint is a CMS platform created by Microsoft, and generally preferred by enterprise-level businesses. Although SharePoint websites account for a small percentage of the internet, it's possible you've visited one recently.

Website Creation With SharePoint

SharePoint is an enterprise-level platform, dominantly used by education, business, and government verticals. Although there are annual licensing costs for this platform, they're towards the cheaper end of the spectrum when compared to other platforms. SharePoint's code is under a proprietary license, and has a .NET codebase. It's supportive of API's and integrations with additional tools. SharePoint has a fairly large developer community and an internal security team constantly monitoring and updating the platform.

Managing Your Website With SharePoint

Unlike other website platforms, SharePoint is often used as an internal tool for individuals within a business to share documents and other content directly with each other. SharePoint has also, notably, taken some strides within 2017 to bring the entire platform up to date with standard CMS administrative experiences. Although it can be used as a marketing tool, as much as any other CMS is, SharePoint is supportive of–and often used as–a document repository.
