What are SharePoints Competitor Products

Overview:  SharePoint does not stack up against any single COTS product easily due to the size and functionality offered.  This post is my opinion, and I am not an expert in any of the competing products.

Updated: 2018/06/13

A few years back I wrote a post that is still somewhat relevant form SP 2010 competitors.

This post aims to list competitor products in a broad sense and tries to highlight the areas that where the product and SharePoint perform a similar function.
  • Atlassian Confluence
  • Alfresco
  • Documentum
  • eRooms
  • Lotus Notes
  • EMC’s Center Stage
  • Google docs
  • Slack - Very similar to Teams from MS
  • ClickUp - project management but has chat, stores docs, calendars, time tracking, links, similar to MS Teams and Slack but from a project management focus. Update: 25/06/2022
Beehive from Oracle lines up to Lync, Exchange/Outlook and SharePoint
OpenText, lines up some of SP's functionality such as blogs, Wikis and document collaboration.
Search competitors:
  • Endeca (Oracle)
  • Autonomy (HP)
  • Google Search Appliance or Google mini
  • Coveo
  • Solr (check this out)
CMS Competitors
  • Sitecore
  • Umbraco

OneDrive: Dropbox, Drop, Google docs

More Info:
If anyone has further information, please reply as this is not an exhaustive set of lists.  My experience with rival products is relatively limited.
