When it comes to ECM applications like EMC Documentum, IBM FileNet and, of course, SharePoint, many businesses face a common issue: users want to use the most lightweight file-sharing services, but these programs often have issues with privacy control. Microsoft has noticed this conundrum and rolled out OneDrive for Business (ODB) as part of Office 365.
However, Microsoft isn’t abandoning SharePoint, its traditional collaboration platform, anytime soon. In fact, quite the opposite. SharePoint integrates well with ODB so your business can now get the best of both SharePoint and OneDrive.
Though there is some overlap in the capabilities of the two systems, the benefit of using both programs is that you can let employees who are unfamiliar with SharePoint work with ODB while they’re training for SharePoint. Then both programs can be used in conjunction with one another to cut down on the heaviness that can sometimes plague SharePoint.
