Microsoft SharePoint is a workspace linked to your UK business allowing you to create and share content both internally and externally. A cloud-based storage, Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft OneDrive are fantastic collaboration tools, offering multiple parties the opportunity to access and work on documents simultaneously in real time.
As a business, you may find yourself wondering ‘what are the benefits of SharePoint?’. SharePoint allows your employees to work on files securely together from anywhere at any time. It integrates seamlessly with business applications and Office 365 tools, especially Microsoft Teams, and can be used to create team ‘spaces’ to store information such as files or useful contacts. In fact, Microsoft SharePoint excels as a collaborative workspace and file storage to the point that many London businesses use it to host their intranet sites.
Microsoft OneDrive is a Cloud-based file and storage solution designed for providing users with a place to store personal files securely. With inbuilt features such as Known Folders enabling users to merge all existing Desktop, Document and Pictures into the users OneDrive account, any data which exists on the workstation is synchronised to the cloud. As a result, Microsoft OneDrive backups employees’ data and files in the case of an emergency.
What are the differences between SharePoint and OneDrive? There’s a lot of similarities, including:
However, to settle the debate of SharePoint v OneDrive, it’s important to remember that OneDrive is essentially a single SharePoint document library located in a single site but is designed solely for that user acting as a secure location to store data. Meanwhile, SharePoint is a wider collaboration and cloud storage solution designed for whole business use, with the objective being multiple users are able to access permitted data stored within a location at the same time with convenience. Despite the similarities, they are both different products and should be treated as such.
