Capture and map business requirements to SharePoint Online features, design SharePoint Online site collection architecture and discuss integrated content management functionality and opportunities.
C1st believes that any creative or technical solution is only as good as the business objectives, research, and strategy that support it. We define a successful SharePoint solution as one that not only meets the functional and business needs of the client but – to achieve the underlying business objectives – one that is used by people within the client organization. User adoption is the critical focus of the information design. Simply put, without improvements in user adoption business objectives can’t be achieved.
Summary of the activities conducted: -Portal and solution requirement gathering sessions to understand the functional and service requirements of the Client’s business owners. This includes Information Architecture; Identifying sites and content to be migrated; Capturing business needs and unique processes; Content management and feature mapping to business requirements -Architecting SharePoint Online permission matrix for access and control for an anticipated range of user base to include access controls and security pruning for external groups, and users -Identifying light corporate branding which esthetically promotes corporate site identity -Designing a SharePoint content management architecture which uses feature rich usage of native content management and governance controls
