Confluence and SharePoint?

Jonathan Smith Community Leader May 29, 2019

Morning everyone,

  I need some honest feedback from this lovely community. For those who utilize both Confluence and SharePoint, when do you use each product?

Would SharePoint only be utilized for document management and Confluence for everything else? 

Our company is getting to the point where they want to choose a product, and I just want to make sure I am guiding them down the correct path. I can totally see a hybrid environment, but if we went 100% Confluence, we would experience some pain using FIle Lists vs Document libraries (tagging/metadata/views). 

Currently we are licensed for 2000 users so we have a healthy Confluence environment, but we will be licensed for SharePoint via O365 soon... 

Thoughts / Suggestions?

I have generally used Confluence for documentation which is often changed, or needs to be used in a collaborative way with changes by multiple authors etc.  It's also easier to comment on pages and allow people to review.

Generally use Sharepoint for more 'formal' documentation, where version control is important and changes need to be tracked more rigorously, e.g. contractual documentation in Word format.
