We use Microsoft in most of our products, and their premium support is great, answered every question we asked and resolved most of our issues thru their ticketing system and conference calls.
If you have to go on-prem, then you might want to keep up with the patching and make sure it doesn't break any custom development. Second, if you are starting small, you might want to look for a lightweight CMS.
Solid document management, revision control and tied to active directory and can interact with Office products.
Heavy, logging is complex, runs only on Windows platform.
Make SharePoint Designer more user/developer friendly unlike Nintex WorkFlow Designer.
We could have chosen a lightweight CMS since we started small, however we are growing now, and we leverage more than one environment.
SLA was great, most of our issues were resolved in a timely manner.

Great product. No match.
Look at Office 365 instead of on-prem if you don't have PHI data.
Integrates well with Windows environment.
Dependency on SQL Server for files.
Blobs in SQL Server.
Minimize the site collections size.

Architect it accordingly. Use a load balancer with your web servers.
Having to go out and purchase 3rd party snap-ins/utilities.
Meet the needs for web parts and 3rd party utilities so clients did not have to go out and purchase these 3rd party utilities to meet the needs of its clients for items that aren't available in Sharepoint 2013. Types of things we have had to buy are print capabilities for forms like nintex and a more robust Organizational chart. Security comes to mind on these 3rd party utilities, and we aren't able to effectively vouch for the security and whatnot within them.
Nothing to note.

Good experience. I was testing the product.
increase your testing group.
it's very broad.
not getting the basics of how SharePoint builds. In order to build it out efficiently and create roles from the beginning.
Some areas were not clear as of how you build out SharePoint.
provide more user testing.

highly configurable but as a workflow management tool, it had limitations. Also, the implementation took many of the features out as it did not meet business requirements.
consider your use cases broadly between different groups (risk, tech, product, security, etc)
integration with project.
site management is bit cumbersome.
integrates well with MS products but not others.
would consider workflow management as a key requirement rather than document change control and sharing.
not part of the technology deployment team.
Overall implementation was costly. Just wished it can be used more broadly.

Overall is good.
Well known vendor and lots of community engagement.
Strengthen or improve the Wiki component.
So far it met our requirement needs.
Satisfied with service and support.
Since we already have experience with the previous version, transition to new version was not a big challenge.

It is only functional as a database tool. It does not adequately function as a PPM or PM Tool.
Do a complete review and don't just buy a name brand.
Sharepoint does more than just database information.
Reevaluate overall end user needs and then decide on software utilization.

The support was very timely and provide quick response to questions.
Ensure collaborative stakeholders are involved at the beginning. The stakeholder needs are important to ensure that the enterprise needs are recognized.
Usability by staff in a short turnaround time.

Great for a quick deployment to manage IT projects. Stood up a new process for IT projects and this tool was already familiar to our user community. Allowed for standardization and guidance of project sites so that the new methods/processes were easy to follow.
Pilot, pilot, pilot.
The product was already used within our organization so the learning curve was just around IT project management process deployment.
The inability to search in explorer by tags.
Great for a quick deployment to manage IT projects. Stood up a new process for IT projects and this tool was already familiar to our user community. Allowed for standardization and guidance of project sites so that the new methods/processes were easy to follow. I would likely deploy sub-sites differently than we did in the first round. PMs of larger projects need more flexibility/control of their sites.
