5. Welcome to VMLimited
Don’t get stuck in the IT past, watch what happens when you try to buy a cloud solution from the wrong company.
SharePoint Online is a multi-tenant environment, meaning that each customer’s SharePoint deployment might exist on the same servers as someone else’s. This therefore puts restrictions on the level of customisation that they can do to their environment. After all, you wouldn’t want to find your SharePoint environment to suddenly change because someone else had implemented code that affected the server. These restrictions mean that if you want to build custom solutions on SharePoint Online, it makes sense to do as much as possible without code. To that end, InfoPath and custom lists have a lot of power.
