London (PRWEB UK) 9 April 2013
ImageFast one of the UK’s Leading Enterprise Content Management experts and Microsoft Gold Partner have developed the SharePoint for ECM Blueprint to help organisations that are struggling to deliver value on their SharePoint Platform. The blueprint provides organisations with the key building blocks and business considerations that are essential to helping organisations develop business applications and drive an ROI from the platform.
There are many organisations where Microsoft SharePoint has not been implemented to its full potential, and therefore not delivering real business value. Typically ImageFast has helped Organisations struggling with a lack of understanding of the full capabilities of SharePoint, implementation requirements, third party applications and the like.
ImageFast have designed this blueprint to help aid organisations when faced with questions such as “How can we develop scalable enterprise business applications leveraging our existing SharePoint platform?”
Darren Edwards, Managing Director of ImageFast has seen first-hand and commented that;
“Common issues being faced within organisations that use SharePoint typically fall into a few categories; SharePoint has been installed for a specific department or as an intranet, without any real road map or thought on how to move it forward. In some cases SharePoint is yet to be installed or installed by the IT department to evaluate the platform and there is no clear vision on how to deploy it to the rest of the business, in all of these cases organisations are struggling to define the business case and how to move forward with the platform"
The blueprint has been made simple, as ImageFast have found during many implementations that there are 3 main functionality areas that must be addressed; these three layers are as follows;
- Standard SharePoint features: The foundation of a SharePoint platform such as document management capabilities, collaborative workspaces and business intelligence.
- Third Party Applications: There are areas where the functionality needs to be enhanced to ensure requirements can be met more efficiently; these typically include areas such as workflow, scanning, email integration and system management.
- Business considerations: The final layer represents what organisations must consider and plan for in order to achieve a successful SharePoint implementation. These considerations can include governance, migration, adoption and application integration.
