Utilizing Microsoft SharePoint for Collaboration and Beyond

  1. 1. SharePoint Enablement Utilizing Microsoft SharePoint for Collaboration and Beyond Collaboration drives efficiencies. And, in today’s global economy, efficient organizations require a central repository, or area, for sharing information. People within the organization need a designated place to actively retrieve, update, and view historical changes to documents and information with the appropriate controls relative to access and security. Why is Collaboration So Critical? A few examples are provided below. l Policies and Procedures: Many organizations are becoming extremely mature in the creation of Standard Operating Procedures and Policy documents. Whether it is due to legislation like Sarbanes Oxley that runs across all industries, or an industry-specific compliance requirement, the need to access and control documents for policies and procedures is often not only important, but required by legislation. l Technology Implementations: As organizations evolve and increase their technology and infrastructure capabilities, system integrators are often called on to assist with implementation activities. Many times, these implementations run in parallel within an organization and share common tasks and documentations. A single area of collaboration allows multiple streams of work to run, without work being lost or redundant. Once again, implementations in industries such as Insurance require access to and control of documents for CFR Part 11 Validation requirements, hence a driver towards an area for web collaboration. l Organizations Growing Geographically: With organizations growing nationally and internationally with vendors in various locations, web-based interactions are increasingly necessary to enable teams to create and hold meetings, and manage shared work spaces.
