I need an Assessment of my SharePoint environment

Understanding your Business Goals.

The best place to start is at the beginning. The first phase can be tricky.  In fact, if you have acquired SharePoint as part of Office 365 subscription you might be wondering what is it and what can you do with it. As we have worked on many systems for different kinds of businesses we can provide examples and recommendations of what might work for you. Being able to see something that has been built before can be the quickest way to get your users to engage with the design process, and time spent in this planning phase helps reap rewards. We show you how to make your business work smarter using SharePoint the way it’s meant to be used.

SharePoint Business Value Workshops

We collaborate with you to develop an understanding of your business objectives and how you will use it on a daily basis. We show you how Microsoft SharePoint could be utilized to help you achieve your business goals, increase user adoption, and optimise efficiency by powerful document management or automating business processes.

Working closely with you, we can develop a proof of concept using existing processes to get buy-in from business stakeholders and to ensure you will achieve the level of engagement you need to drive results.

Assessment

Our SharePoint assessment is a great opportunity to review and make improvements to align with current and future business needs. It is also an opportunity to clear out obsolete data. This could involve fixing havoc caused by elevated permissions, ensuring there is no risk to the business e.g. the wrong people having access, storing sensitive data in the wrong place or monitoring changes to policies or configurations.

The assessment also helps to ensure that the right resources are in place to prevent future loss of control.
