SharePoint can provide value to enterprises by supporting new and collaborative ways of working. When deployed effectively, team and community collaboration technology consolidate apps and content that contribute to information overload and context-switching. But as with any ECM deployment, enterprises need to plan carefully. Uncontrolled SharePoint growth can lead to administrative, compliance, and performance issues. Enterprises must leverage governance, the right roles, and traditional enterprise content management (ECM) platforms to support their deployments.
