There was an organization, a very popular one at that, that was making extensive use of the Salesforce cloud platform to deal with multiple customers daily. Though they were reaching pinnacles of success, there was something that was holding them back, kind of putting a kink in an otherwise fabulous success story. And that was the unorganized management of Salesforce files & attachments in their Org. To top it over, their file management issues were further accentuated by the file storage limits Salesforce had in place. 

As a means to solve their problems, the company started moving important files & documents from Salesforce into one of the most preferred external storage, SharePoint. And lo and behold, all of their Salesforce file management woes really did resolve. Like many other companies, there can be several reasons for their preference, be it the highly configurable nature of SharePoint, its top-notch document management capabilities, or even the file storage optimization it facilitates.
