ImageFast have developed a five-step approach to help organisations with the adoption of SharePoint. The planner is designed to help any organisation whether you are looking at the options of how to implement SharePoint or already have SharePoint and wish to check that you are maximising its benefits.
ImageFast SharePoint Adoption Planner – The Five Steps
Firstly, a review of your business information and company goals must be completed to establish a comprehensive set of business and governance requirements, to compare with SharePoint and determine the feasibility of adoption. If feasible, we continue the process looking at ROI and presenting the case to various areas of the business for acceptance or ‘buy-in’.
Planning & Design
Requirements become more detailed as the result of internal discussions with business users who understand future needs. We make considerations for; information architecture design, system transition, company branding and the migration of legacy data.
Build and implementation of a fully functioning test model to co-exist with remaining systems, facilitating the assessment of usability, performance and changes to ways of working. Third party systems are integrated and the overall system is configured to meet requirements, ensuring optimum performance and efficiency.
The final, approved model is deployed to production, accompanied by an extensive testing plan to ensure any concerns are raised and dealt with immediately and business disruption is kept to an absolute minimum. Expert management of the deployment process includes thorough backup and recovery planning in case of such events.
ImageFast provide flexible skills transfer, training and technical support options to help you derive maximum benefit and adoptions from your SharePoint solution.
