I need to find an alternative to Sharepoint

Now that the 2016 on-premises and cloud versions were released, I'm sure there's no need to look for a replacement for Sharepoint, especially with this new Linked Table Manager feature. It allows you to manage complex Access data easily.
In order to import Access spreadsheets, you should follow these steps:
1. locate the address of the site where the spreadsheets you need to import are situated
2. identify the data you want to be imported. You have an option to choose either to import the whole list or just a view, but remember that while you can copy several lists, you can copy only one view of it.
