TL;DR

SharePoint makes business sense when aligned with business goals and implemented as a presentation layer for documents, information, workflow and Line of Business (LOB) data.

More than 250 000 companies companies around the world use SharePoint, over 85% of Fortune 500 companies now have SharePoint Online as part of Office 365.

And unlike Exchange, Outlook and Teams (which makes immediate business sense and provides immediate value to an organization), SharePoint is not something that can provide immediate business value without understanding the platform first.

Demonstrable value

When we send and receive an email from our computers, the value comes from the content, mobility, and security provided in that transaction. Winning a deal, a new customer, hiring a new starter and communicating with your team over email gives us all that feel good feeling. We achieved something from interacting with this method of technology, it was easy and immediate, life is good.

It makes business sense, the return on investment (ROI) is incredible. Mailboxes in Exchange run from as little as $5 a month per user and accessible on pretty much any device anywhere on the planet.

Teams is also becoming a dominant tool when participating in unstructured collaboration. it enables you to chat in real-time to your team anywhere in the world. Further, it allows you to share files and links and then action those items immediately by integrating with over 250 other applications.

The ROI is also immediate as without any customization and very little training, users on pretty much any bundled package are able to leverage Teams starting at $12 a month.
