Microsoft Sharepoint Services

What is Microsoft SharePoint?

Organizations use SharePoint to create websites to store, organize, and access information across multiple devices. Some companies use SharePoint to build their Internet websites to publish information to the public. Others organizations use SharePoint to build internal, password-protected Intranet websites to securely and centrally manage and share their internal documents and files across an organization.

Microsoft designed SharePoint to be highly configurable platform – so it can also be used for automating business processes using electronic forms and workflows.

When SharePoint Goes Wrong, it’s often because…

  • Poor Planning – SharePoint changes the way your staff will work & think.
  • No Governance – SharePoint can grow into a disorganized mess without IT & Business champions.
  • No Training – Training is essential for both your IT team & your business users to succeed.
  • No Budget – Planning, Governance, training and third party tools require time & money.
  • Dreaming Big – Scope creep can occur very easily in SharePoint projects without clear goals.
