Pavani I'm New Here Jan 20, 2020
  • we are trying to evaluate your product for one of our usecase
  • it would be great if you can help me in understanding the tool functionality in detail
  • usecase is with respect to document management
  • we would like to store our documents and use them based on our requirements, like sharepoint
  • we want to organise our documents
  • we also like to know the process of integrating the software with our applications
  • like API access to your software

Confluence is a wiki, not a document management system (where documents go to die), so it's not really possible to answer most of your questions with other than "it's not for that".  Ideally, you should be looking to import your static documents into pages so that they become active and immediately available to end users.

It is not "like sharepoint" and if you just attach documents to pages, you will not be getting any of the benefits Confluence offers.

See https://confluence.atlassian.com/confeval/confluence-evaluator-resources/confluence-confluence-vs-sharepoint for a good overview of the differences, and  https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/Confluence-vs-Sharepoint-What-s-the-difference/qaq-p/539092 for a good discussion of the differences. 

The last question is directly answerable though: To "integrate" it with other applications, use the REST API as per https://developer.atlassian.com/server/confluence/confluence-server-rest-api/
