SharePoint is a popular enterprise data collaboration platform, however it provides a complicated user interface and has limited capabilities on mobile and outside the corporate network. Nextcloud external storage support offers an easy way to access data of SharePoint in the same place where other data is available, facilitating collaboration and sharing within and across the borders of the organization.
