Microsoft SharePoint Online is a collection of cloud- and web-based technologies that makes it easy to store, share and manage digital information within an organization.

SharePoint Online is divided into three hubs: Newsfeed, OneDrive and Sites. A new microblogging allows users to engage in conversations, "like" posts, include pictures, videos and documents and mention other users in the Newsfeed. Sites can be easily customized or configured for mobile devices.

SharePoint online also allows collaboration with external users, such as vendors or customers.

SharePoint Online is available as a standalone product or as part of an Office 365 suite that includes Exchange Online, Skype for Business, Office clients and Web apps.
