After “Do you use SharePoint?”, the next question we ask if you're interested in Pro-Sapien's EHS software, is "What version of SharePoint are you on?" If you don't know the answer, then you're not alone (trust us)!
Figuring out what version of SharePoint you’re on is useful many reasons, not just for those who are looking to deploy enterprise EHS software into the platform.
The technical structure of enterprise IT can get quite complicated, but pinpointing what version of SharePoint or Office 365 license you have is relatively simple.
Why is it important?
Your SharePoint version determines the technologies that you have available to you at your company. For independent software vendors (ISVs) like Pro-Sapien, knowing this from the outset will enable us to give an early and accurate idea of how your Pro-Sapien system could look and work.
Of course, as an EHS professional not knowing the answer to this question is not a big deal – we can leave that to the IT department – however, it can speed up the initial Q&A process with any ISV if you do know off the bat what version of SharePoint your company makes use of.
SharePoint comes in various versions, which dictate the functionality that's available to you in the platform. At the time of writing, there is a distinction between SharePoint on-premise, and SharePoint Online, part of Office 365. Within these two versions, there are several license types.
