A new SharePoint governance ROI calculator by Microsoft Partner SharePoint Solutions enables users to estimate cost saving to their company by using Site Provisioning and Governance Assistant (SPGA) 2010, a software add-on created to tame the “site-creation monster” that plagues many organizations grappling with site sprawl. The calculator enables executives to run their own numbers based on individual factors such as the average salary of their SharePoint site administrators and the number of hours per week spent handling SharePoint site requests versus the cost of the product.

Now IT professionals have an objective way to document potential cost savings before committing to make a purchase.

A new SharePoint governance ROI calculator by Microsoft Partner SharePoint Solutions enables users to estimate cost saving to their company by using Site Provisioning and Governance Assistant (SPGA) 2010, a software add-on created to tame the “site-creation monster” that plagues many organizations grappling with site sprawl.

SPGA 2010 provides a simple and consistent method for creating, configuring and controlling new SharePoint 2010 sites. But how do you determine return on investment for the time it saves? Our new ROI calculator enables executives to run their own numbers based on individual factors such as the average salary of their SharePoint site administrators and the number of hours per week spent handling SharePoint site requests versus the cost of the product,” said Tony Bierman, managing director of SharePoint Solutions’ Commercial Software Division.

“Now IT professionals have an objective way to document potential cost savings before committing to make a purchase,” he added.

With SPGA 2010, administrators create Request Profiles with all the appropriate settings “baked” in. Users then select the appropriate Request Profile and fill out a short request form, which sets into motion the provisioning process. Workflows can be used to automate provisioning and approvals. The result is every site is provisioned just the way administrators want it—uniformly and automatically.

“If you have a lot of sites to provision and want to save time and money, SPGA 2010 is your new best friend,” Bierman said.

Based in Nashville, Tenn., SharePoint Solutions is a Microsoft Partner and a nationwide leader in expert-led public classes on SharePoint products and technologies.
