SharePoint in and of itself has worked great. Our biggest difficulty is around managing customizations and third party software at the enterprise level. Other than this SharePoint has been a great tool for us, and has created many efficiencies in how we do business internally.
Implement fewer customizations and don't add third party tools. This may cause issues with upgrades down the road.
What I like most is the ability for project teams and work groups to easily establish a presence on our intranet and to incorporate processes into those sites using workflows. SharePoint has been a great collaboration tool for managing processes and documentation.
Permissioning is often confusing and causes conflicts if you don't really know what you're doing.
We had no problems with the vender that I can recall. Microsoft was very supportive and we have a great ongoing relationship.
We would implement fewer customizations and not add third party tools. This has caused support and upgrade issues. I would also enforce training for site collection administrators and require participation in a SharePoint User Group.

It has been sucessful implementaiton, and need more support ongoing for no additonal cost.
share point is good and cost effective tool, but has limitaitons for internet
it is very commonly used technology, and so much support is out there built in security is secure and safe enough for our organization
uncertain road map regards icloude security
we would design based on the expandibility of mobile app
will consult with micro soft when we build out the infrastrucutre

Overall the migration we did to SharePoint online went smooth and as expected. What we didn't expect is the other services that came along with our subscription and the rapid pace of change within the Microsof online ecosystem
Carefully consider how you are going to manage the other services available with your Office 365 subscription.
Although it is a challengs, the rapid pace of innovation is a benefit.
There isn't anything that I would say that I "disliked" there are challenges in managing the platform but now that we have the appropriate resources and roles in place things are working well and we are able to get innovations to our end users much more quickly than we have in the past.
Microsoft is doing a good job trying to keep users and admins informed about changes but, at times, changes do slip through without much or any communications.
Prepare for the rapid change pace and implement the Office 365 platform manager role to oversee all of the services available (this was implemeted about 9 months into the implementation)
In general, the basic support is adequate from Microsoft but we also have a dedicated support engineer that we pay for from Microsoft that greatly improves the support process.

Incrementally setup and rolled out SharePoint Online to replace a shared folder on a network drive that was tough for people to access the files. It was painless to setup quickly with the basic document library functionality - we haven't had time or focus to roll out any of the other/advanced functionalities so are likely under using it.
Online support (dont pay for extra support). Very slow in getting responses on Microsoft Support. Often the support requires several follow-ups.

Outstanding support and quick response time from vendor.
Ensure standardization for content and better command and control is required for a successful migration
Capabilities for enhancing collaboration and information sharing
Better content management control and policies for ease of migration to new versions in the future

our vendor doing good job in maintain and monitor the system
Dont custom too much, try to use out of the box function
Simple, good performance, easy to maintain
Need to have more out of the box function
They should informed us if any things can be do better, not just we request
We would enhance on user offboarding and user request to access the system
our vendor will response on issue and questions within SLA

Sharepoint is a complex implementation. Without leveraging the expertise provided by MicroSoft and third party providers, it is unlikely we would have been able successfully complete the initial implementations.
Make sure you understand all the products offered and what they could be used for before you begin building.
It is feature rich and can be managed successfully with little IT staff and the right support from the business.
It is complex.
We would have a full roll out plan and full site design before starting to build sites for the business. We would also have ensured that we had appropriate staffing and allignment with the business to be able to manage site collections once implemented. Finally, we would have considered more closely what products within Sharepoint to implement.
It is part of our MicroSoft licensing.

Migration aspectes were simple. However UX and UI are tough to address.
Use as much as possible out of the box solution. Think about integrations particularly if you are using other MS products.
Availability of the resources
Complexity with UI/UX and browser support capabilities
Expand search capabilities to external sources.
I would change our business process to be much simpler and use cloud based solution solution rather than onpremise.
Overall we are satisified with SharePoint 2010 implementation, but also looking forward for the next version.

Sharepoint is a good collaboration tool but must have strong governance and strong training for not only the end users but also the site owners. It must have a senior manager(s) as champions to show the power of the tool by using it themselves!
don't under estimate the communications for this project - the more communication the better!
once the users understand how to use the software they are very happy with the ease of use
maintenace takes a large amount of time and testing.
explained the impact of the architecture selected - we now have a major migration due to a poor choice of initial architecture!
we would have stronger governance and more frequent training for the site owners
we use the microsoft premium support and are satisfied with the service
