These are the best SharePoint Apps we have seen launched to date in the African SharePoint Market
Johannesburg, South Africa (PRWEB) May 06, 2015
In less than 3 years, Complexus has grown to become a SharePoint solutions provider with a reputation for innovation in the Southern African Enterprise Collaboration & SharePoint market.
In 2014, Complexus entered into a partnership with Bestoutcome Ltd, a European leader in complex Program & Change Management services for large organisations, operating in sectors such as finance, energy, transport, retail and the public sector. The primary goal of the partnership was to help organisations better manage change and steer programmes towards successful outcomes, more often?
According to the 2014 PMI Pulse report, organisational change continues to be a challenge for the vast majority of businesses, with only one in five organizations reporting highly effective change management.
“This is a very common problem," stated Nick Bradshaw, Co-founder & Managing Partner of Complexus. “Clients deploying new technology or enhancing legacy deployments are looking for successful outcomes that reduce total cost of ownership, improve business efficiency and meet the organization’s objectives. To do this they need to adopt change and maturity based approaches to ensure long term success and using objective tools to help identify gaps in the Enterprises‘ ability to effect business change. We set out to change this by combining a unique body of best practice IP from Bestoutcome Ltd into two groundbreaking Apps for SharePoint, called ReadinessPoint™ & RiskPoint™." Bradshaw concluded, “Its an exciting new development as we can now offer the Enterprise or Mid-size company the ability to use these solutions on-premise or in the cloud using SharePoint 2013 or SharePoint Online via O365”.
Gareth Jane, Start-Up Technical Strategy Lead at Microsoft BizSpark South Africa said, “With most change programs failing to achieve a ROI or measurable benefit to the Enterprise client, these Apps are a very cost effective first step towards changing the status quo and uphold all the Microsoft virtues of end user simplicity making for a very intuitive User Experience. These are the best SharePoint Apps we have seen launched to date in the African SharePoint Market and we were so impressed with their work we invited them to join as SharePoint mentors to Microsoft BizSpark South Africa community members."
Marc Lenferna, Co-founder and Managing Partner at Complexus said, “As part of our ongoing commitment to Microsoft’s Cloud & Mobile First strategy and growing SharePoint App store portfolio, we are looking to bring to market a range of Apps for SharePoint that are simple, effective and easy to deploy. We want distributed Enterprise staff involved in change projects, PMO operations, delivery functions & CxO strategy development to be able to come to a common place to collaborate and assess change projects in one location. Consumer App ease of use coupled to dashboards and auditable reports that identify risk and corrective actions help ensure that any change initiative will be a success.”
Warren Larkan, Marketing and Communications Lead at Microsoft BizSpark South Africa said, “Its clear that Complexus have a development philosophy that is aiming to ensure the Desktop, Laptop, Tablet or Phone user has access to robust, Enterprise scale SharePoint solutions, that offer the same ease of use as you would find in the consumer App space no matter what platform you are using. Its the first time this approach to change management has been brought to the Enterprise via SharePoint so that all stakeholders can see the insights these Apps yield in a single place. It’s a real innovation we believe will add value to all Microsoft SharePoint clients around the world."
Complexus will be showcasing these SharePoint Apps at various events in South Africa in 2015 including; the Southern Africa Knowledge Management Summit in JHB in May 26th-28th and the CIO Road Map in JHB June 24th. ReadinessPoint™ & RiskPoint™ form part of the ground breaking SharePoint App suite, Outcome Manager, and are available today via the Microsoft SharePoint App Store on a free, per user & site licence basis.
