Jostle vs SharePoint
Last updated: September 15, 2017
Jostle’s cloud-based intranet helps leaders align their organization and enable employees. Clarify your teams, initiatives and values. Share your news. Recognize your successes. Make sure each employee has the help and information they need to get work done. Easy to implement with a proven engagement plan. Deploy in a week without consuming IT resources.
SharePoint's multi-purpose platform allows for managing and provisioning of intranet portals, extranets and websites, document management and file management, collaboration spaces, social networking tools, enterprise search, business intelligence tooling, process/information integration, and third-party developed solutions. SharePoint can also be used as a web application development platform. SharePoint alternatives for small business are: Office 365, Box, G Suite, Zoho. There are also free open-source alternatives to Sharepoint - Alfresco, Nuxeo, Liferay Portal.
2009 - Microsoft to open Apps Marketplace for Sharepoint 2010 to strike back at Jostle
This is a revolutionary step for Microsoft. Christian Finn, Sharepoint product manager, has announced that the company will open App marketplace for Sharepoint 2010 - something similar to Salesforce's AppExchange. So the army of Microsoft-oriented developers will get access to the large customer base of Sharepoint users. The App store will evolve out of The Gallery (a resource within Sharepoint 2010 that serves as a central place for templates) and will be in available for installation by admins and users (under the admin control). Besides the App marketplace, Sharepoint 2010 will make the developers happy by closer integration with Visual Studio 2010, enhanced Silverlight support, new opportunities for integration external applications and data sources (with the help of Business Connectivity Services) and large lists optimization feature.
