We possibly are going to be implementing SharePoint into our organization of 5000+ users. Because of political reasons we are being pushed into using a hosted solution on a shared farm with other organizations.
I can already imagine the problems that could occur. Biggest one is not having access to Central Administration and not being able to develop/implement custom solutions.
They only have 3-4 people managing the SharePoint farm and so their response times are sometimes several days.
Because of their "security" they don't even allow SharePoint to access our Active Directory (even though we are both state agencies literally a block away from each other) and I have to send them profile information manually for them to input manually which they have already introduced errors and don't enter in all of the information.
What are some other issues that we might be looking at? Problems with stability? Backup problems?
