SharePoint Case Study | Replacing a Legacy Document Management System with a Customized SharePoint Solution

SharePoint Case Study


General Networks was asked to replace a legacy document management system with a SharePoint-based solution for a public policy research organization. First, we conducted an environment assessment and user interviews and discovered the Project Management department had been using an old version of Oracle I/PM for document archiving and project proposal approval. The system, which had a high user approval rating, had not been updated in many years. IT felt the system was unsupportable and didn’t want to commit the financial and personnel resources to an Oracle upgrade.

The organization was already using SharePoint for team collaboration. As a result, General Networks had a better chance of obtaining the organization’s buy-in to move forward with implementing a SharePoint document management  solution.

First, we identified the following implementation challenges, as the organization needed to: Continue reading…

Office 365 Fast Track Planning – Use the Software Assurance (SA) benefits you’re already paying for

In 2014, Microsoft reported to its partners that less than 18% of its customers who were eligible for planning services had actually reserved the right to use those services.

Yes, you read that correctly.  Microsoft not only offers eligible customers planning services, but 82% of these eligible customers have not taken advantage of services they’d already paid for.  In other words, don’t look now, but your organization may be leaving some “free” services on the table that you’ve already paid for!

And, if your organization is considering or is currently using some portion of the Office 365 platform, then your organization may be eligible to take advantage of the Office 365 FastTrack Planning service offering.

Microsoft continues to improve it’s Office 365 offering and it looks like companies will someday enjoy a much larger base storage per tenant in their SharePoint Online instances.

Currently (at the time of this writing) Office 365 tenants have a base storage of 10GB + 500MB per subscribed user. See their official boundaries and limits here. Unless you have hundreds of users this storage amount isn’t very much and has caused many small and medium sized businesses to have to purchase additional storage from Microsoft at a cost of $0.20 / GB / month. It doesn’t sound like much but it can add up over time.
