Do you use SharePoint? Is it a cave or a modern city?

SharePoint is an amazing productivity and collaboration portal platform that, when properly planned, designed and configured, can be a powerful enabler for team sharing, collaboration, communications and overall business productivity.  At the same time, without the proper plan in place, it is not hard to deploy an environment lacking an effective layout and site structure design, with limited search capabilities and compromised security.  SharePoint site environments can sometimes resemble caves more than well planned modern cities:

One of SharePoint’s major strengths being its ease of use, it is sometimes also its biggest weakness as many organizations jump right into the deployment stage without a plan in hand and begin storing files, creating subsites and sharing company content with others, internally and externally.  After a while, search may stop working effectively, navigation may become confusing and confidential information may be exposed to the wrong people.
To be fair it is not hard to plan and deploy an effective SharePoint environment that is easy to navigate, use, secure and manage.  There is an almost unlimited amount of guides and training material online available to help you learn best practices and how to design and deploy good SharePoint environments.
While there is plenty of DIY resources out there, some organizations prefer the guidance of expert consultants with a solution focus and experience to get the job right the very first time.
