Yes and No.
GIT works quite well, I do still prefer the older SVN/CVS though, but personal preference and all that jazz, I use it most days and you get used to it.

Sharepoint, meh, marmite, you either love it or hate it, people use it for storage but I believe it was designed originally for document collaboration, I wouldn't go around replacing all of my NAS shares with it but for documents I guess it does what it says on the tin, as for organising I guess that depends how the people running the show are organising the folders, it *can* be made to be more intuitive than not, but you need someone who understands folder structures well enough to do it for you.

Having most things cloud based means you can work from home more efficiently (unless you need access to specialist equipment / hardware), though i'd have no problem working over a VPN to an actual NFS, again, if you have a network department that knows what they are doing. Most i've come across, small or large corps do not, someone's cousins son set it up etc or someone is still trying to figure out where they can plug their 10baseT coax into.
