SharePoint is the Market Leader
Starting out as a document management system in 2001, Microsoft SharePoint added web content publishing capabilities in 2003. At the time, there were only four leading players in the market alongside SharePoint—Oracle, Plumtree, and Epicentric. Today only Oracle exists among other smaller players. While SharePoint is not the only platform an organization can use for both their intranet and general collaboration or document management, it is the first platform to be a market leader in both.
