Evaluating sharepoint, what would you do?

  Asked By: Samir    Date: Dec 14    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1062

I work for a fairly large company that is evaluating Sharepoint for
our Intranet. Our intranet is currently written in PHP and we've been building
some new
portal stuff into our Intranet. While we are very productive with our current
Intranet, some higher ups are pushing Sharepoint. I would say
primarily our engineers are Java / PHP engineers. Here are my questions if you
those of
you using Sharepoint don't mind sharing your thoughts:

1. What type of learning curve can we expect?
2. If you didn't have any .Net developers in-house would you use
Sharepoint or look at something else?
3. If Sharepoint is chosen, what is a realistic goal we can expect
to get up and running company wide? (1 month, 4 months, 6 months, install it
and go?)
4. If you want to build certain applications to handle work-flow /
business needs, is that something Sharepoint can be used for?
5. How customizeable is it?
6. How many servers do you recommend based on a user basis?
7. What will we run into when customizing and building new
integration applications with
8. And I guess the ultimate question is, would you consider
Sharepoint if you were us
based on our current engineering talents?

Well Sharepoint is something which is completely customizable and the team
should well be aware of ASP.Net and XML family and also Sql Server.

Best of all for everything there are many forums and great SDK is available for
customization and development.As far as I have seen and worked on I found it
farily good and great for the deployment.
