There are numerous collaboration tools available across the Microsoft Office 365 suite and its on-premises equivalents. From Microsoft Teams (just announced near the end of 2016) to SharePoint (which has been around in various incarnations since 2001), IT and business teams have plenty of options for communicating with each other within the Microsoft ecosystem.

Microsoft SharePoint has long been a key tool for collaboration within organizations. It serves several important functions, including the creation of intranets (i.e., websites for internal use) and the management of site content, while integrating with numerous other parts of the Office 365 suite, from Excel to Skype for Business.
WHICH ONE SHOULD YOU USE?
One of the key advantages of Microsoft Office 365 is that is always evolving. Its cloud-based architecture allows it to quickly roll out updates to its vast user base, whether the changes are basic security patches or sweeping overhauls to core applications. Occasionally, new applications enter the fold, too.
Word processors, spreadsheet applications and presentation software were once tools that everyone accessed strictly from a laptop or desktop. Over time, mobile versions became available, alongside cloud-based equivalents that did not require any locally installed components. Google Drive is a prime example of the latter: It can be accessed from anywhere via virtually any web browser.
