SP24 - What is SharePoint? Defining SharePoint for Business Users

Can you answer this question? Let's be honest, even for the most experienced SharePoint professional this isn't an easy question to answer. SharePoint is often called a DMS, Intranet Portal or a tool to create team sites. The official Microsoft Office website contains the following statement: "Organizations use SharePoint to create websites". Really Microsoft? The official Wikipedia has the following to say: "Microsoft SharePoint is a Web application platform developed by Microsoft." You cannot use these descriptions during a presentation for business users, especially when they never heard or worked with SharePoint before. In my role as SharePoint Consultant this question came up many times when talking to the business. In this webinar I share my vision and thoughts how to answer this important question.
