SharePoint enables companies and individuals to create an intranet, a private version of select websites and services stored and shared to a selected audience. Microsoft says that it’s working towards offering “unified access and intelligent discovery for all of your Office 365 files, making it easier than ever for you to create, share, collaborate on and manage documents from anywhere, on any device”.

SharePoint seeks to be the future of the mobile and intelligent intranet.

For those not familiar with SharePoint, the solution is Microsoft’s flexible web application platform which companies use to share data, communicate, and manage workflows. SharePoint is a step up from the traditional company intranet and is built to work alongside the rest of Microsoft’s Office programs. After 15 years, now Microsoft is moving SharePoint towards a “cloud-first, mobile-first” roadmap to make the platform more relevant and useful for modern web users.
