No. Sharepoint is a content management system.

Think of it as a big network share drive on steroids… and yes.. it requires you to purchase a server and is not hosted in the cloud. It is expensive (in the thousands).

    SharePoint is available in both on-premise and as SaaS – SharePoint Online. I know that it does integrate with Dynamics ERP solutions, and probably other ERPs. Normally the integration/development is done by M$ or M$ Partners.

    As far as Google being better- I think it comes down to personal preference. If you’re used to M$ technologies, it might be quite the change to switch to Google Apps, but since there’s a free version, it may be very appealing.
