SharePoint Managed Services
Private Cloud Hosting Benefits
Your Private Cloud Advantage
An AISN hosted SharePoint offers many advantages. Full control to manage your SharePoint and transfer data as you wish. You can upload and download databases, export and import data, and install any of the thousands of 3rd party tools that have been created by hundreds of vendors. You simply can’t do that with some other alternatives!
We are known for our high compliance secure hosting! We provide 24/7/365 remote monitoring, reporting/analytics, and remediation services (e., CPU and memory, system security, application log exceptions, etc).
We’ve been working with SharePoint since its first version. We use out-of-the-box features when possible, and know the product well enough to accomplish what some folks might assume a developer would need to do.
We provide service for every step of the way.
Hosting Plus Managed SharePoint Services — Ranging from Complete Administration to Advice When You Need it.
Our end-to-end SharePoint Hosting services include requirement assessment and planning, farm design, technical implementation, and support, including training for both administrators and end users.
Often we begin with a SharePoint Strategy Planning session and a strategic road map to plan what SharePoint can do best to help your firm. We know what questions to ask and what kinds of problems SharePoint can solve. The Road Map process is all about helping clients get the most out of their SharePoint investment.
SharePoint Made Simple
Guidance with SharePoint
A Proven Approach to SharePoint Implementation.
It’s not just about how the site looks; it’s also about how the site performs. Our senior architects provide guidance on SharePoint functionality. As part of each solution design, we leverage our proven methodology and Intellectual Property toolkits that enhance SharePoint and build a custom solution tailored to meet your business needs.
Delivering the Promise
Getting the Most Value Out of SharePoint.
At the end of the day this simply means addressing how you will manage, maintain and update the site, so you are always getting the most value out of your solution. AISN offers Microsoft SharePoint training and user adoption programs that are fairly progressive. We believe SharePoint can be the agent for change in a business environment, but to get the most out of it, people need to understand how to use it and govern it. By helping our clients train their users to understand the solution within the context of their environment, an organization can increase adoption exponentially while effectively managing and supporting change.
The final step in a SharePoint deployment is knowledge transfer. We ensure our clients are aware of what we have done throughout the site’s creation and deployment, so that you can pick up the reigns and move the SharePoint project forward. The goal is to create a SharePoint site that empowers users to do more on their own. Ultimately, letting you own the project, manage the solution and get the most business value out of SharePoint.
For clients who need extra assistance monitoring, managing and supporting their environment, we offer SharePoint Managed Services. AISN’s approach to SharePoint Managed Services provides our clients with a highly responsive team of subject matter experts, comprehensive coverage and predictable costs to ensure users are able to work efficiently without disruption.
SharePoint Strategy Roadmap Planning
As a rule of thumb when going through the initial requirements stage of a SharePoint website project, we talk about the business requirements and business value 80% of the time, and SharePoint/technology only 20% of the time.
Every company needs to have a strategic plan for implementing SharePoint and a roadmap for its goals. Planning can mean the difference between chaos and smooth sailing.
Our Roadmap consulting engagement is an expanded version of our SharePoint “Day at the White Board” Strategic planning session. Consulting is comprised of on- and off-site components that result in a roadmap for your SharePoint goals, as well as provide a reusable method for continuing improvement. The goal is tangible business value through better utilization of strategic SharePoint features, with documented plans of how to use them.
Aligning SharePoint to Your Business Needs
AISN will assist your organization in getting to where it should be with SharePoint. We provide assistance with strategy planning to establish your business needs, and map them to SharePoint. Workshops use demos of our existing systems to demonstrate how portals, collaboration, search, business forms, content management, business intelligence and workflow can be used.
We build a roadmap using our six month plus method for strategic planning of your tactical goals. The strategy of the organization lays out the combination of policies, processes, and procedures that are employed to help an organization achieve its mission and vision statements. The success of SharePoint is directly related to how well the organization’s mission, vision, and goals are developed and communicated to form a proper context into which SharePoint can be implemented.
Our 6 Month Plus Method creates a roadmap for your SharePoint potential future.
It’s a focus on the coming six months planned and executed in detail, with sketched-out ideas for the following six months. This adds up to 12 months of planning and becomes the basis for a solid and ongoing intranet strategy. At the end of each 6 month period, new functionality or content is delivered that helps position the intranet for the next round of improvements. Releasing intranet ‘upgrades’ every six months works well.
Instead of steadily working on longer-term activities, this approach asks: what can be delivered in the next six months? In answering this question, it also identifies those activities that are not just doable, but also worth doing (the best bang for the buck).
This is a cyclic process, with each six month period of activity leading into the next. Underlying this is the steady building of momentum for the intranet, giving an ‘upwards spiral’ that allows more to be done in each six month period. In this way, the intranet team can steadily work on ever-increasing needs and issues, even when the starting point is extremely constrained.
This means you are not waiting for the ‘right conditions’ to arise, and you can act constructively and proactively to build an increasingly effective intranet.
