When they brought in SharePoint here, the IT folks wouldn't install it where it needed to be (root, I believe), and because of that nobody was able to be assigned privileges correctly. This has been nothing but trouble ever since.

SharePoint can be a nightmare if you don't have all the necessary
privileges so are dependent on someone in IT to do things they may not
understand very well.
