What is SharePoint?

SharePoint is a web-based collaboration and document management platform developed by Microsoft. It is part of the Microsoft 365 suite of applications, and is used by organizations to create websites for information sharing, document management, and team collaboration. SharePoint provides a range of features and capabilities that enable organizations to store, manage, and share documents, as well as to automate business processes and workflows.

SharePoint allows users to create sites for specific purposes, such as team collaboration, project management, document management, and knowledge management. Each site can contain one or more lists, libraries, pages, and web parts, which can be customized to meet specific business needs. Users can create and share content, such as documents, tasks, calendars, and announcements, and collaborate with others in real-time.

SharePoint also provides a range of tools for managing and controlling content, such as version control, document approval, and access control. Users can create workflows to automate business processes, such as document approval, expense approval, and project management. SharePoint integrates with other Microsoft 365 applications, such as Teams, Outlook, and OneDrive, providing a seamless and integrated collaboration experience.

SharePoint provides a powerful platform for team collaboration, document management, and business process automation, and is used by organizations of all sizes to improve productivity and collaboration.
