Why Microsoft SharePoint?
ITS has evaluated the use of the S:drive, H:drive and requests that continually come to us for document management, storage and online collaboration. Microsoft SharePoint provides a robust, cloud based solution in a familiar environment. The college-wide SACS Reaffirmation Project is a good example of excellent use of the collaborative web-based features available in SharePoint.
