Amazon WorkDocs offers the following advantages over SharePoint:

  • It is a fully managed service, meaning that Amazon takes care of the underlying infrastructure and maintenance.

  • It is more scalable so organizations of all sizes can use it.

  • It is more secure, as it is hosted on Amazon's secure cloud infrastructure.

SharePoint, on the other hand, offers the following advantages over Amazon WorkDocs:

  • It has a wider range of features, such as workflow automation and business intelligence.

  • It is more integrated with other Microsoft products like Office 365.

  • It is more widely used, so more documentation and support are available.

If you are looking for a simple and secure solution that is easy to use, Amazon WorkDocs could be the solution for you. Still, if you need a more powerful and feature-rich solution, SharePoint may be a better option.

@Anne Cubarrubia -----I'm not sure I agree with your assessment. SharePoint is also a "fully managed service" and can be used by any size of organization. I also question your claim that WorkDocs is "more secure" than Microsoft cloud. I find that difficult to believe. In addition, the SharePoint "workflow automation" that you mentioned is now deprecated, replaced with MS Power Automate and Power Apps.  AWS certainly has its advantages regarding cloud services, but document management is not one of them.
