When you integrate the SharePoint Online (SPO) component with your Pega Platform application, you can perform various actions on your SharePoint entities directly from your application.
Using SPO, you can create team sites and portals to share with other users, either inside or outside of your organization. SPO users can effectively collaborate with others by using any device and use SharePoint features without managing a complicated infrastructure.
