  • Success Story Healthcare, agriculture and chemicals: SharePoint rollout Ensuring high quality software and applications development to support the delivery of strategic goals A professional development service reduces the high risks of moving to a shared environment for successful SharePoint application lifecycle management. Challenge summary Steria’s client faced a significant integration challenge as it sought to implement a shared environment for SharePoint applications and to replace Lotus Notes. Key points Reducing the risk of a shared environment Scalable development resources Future proofed SharePoint applications environment in line with strategic need Potential negative side effects from applications hosted on the shared environment. The challenge With core competencies in the fields of healthcare, agriculture and high-tech chemical products, Steria’s client is the group’s global competence centre for IT and business services. In pursuit of costs and software quality, the business opted to offer its group family of companies a highly available shared SharePoint 2010 platform, ready to host any type of application required. The group also decided to replace its existing Lotus Notes environment with a SharePoint environment to achieve more standardised maintainable applications. The different requirements of these applications and risks of the complex development in a shared SharePoint environment raised several challenges: How to ensure high quality software throughout the application management lifecycle A need for scalable development resources © Steria / November 2013 Our solution With proven expertise in the development of SharePoint environments, Steria was ideally placed to support the business in this transformation of its applications landscape. Steria offered a standardised development and staging service for the transformation of the existing SharePoint 2010 applications development process. A SharePoint Lifecycle Management (SPALM) approach was also implemented. This was based on proprietary Steria tools, such as SharePoint Software Factory, ShareCop and a proven staging tool. The high risks associated with the complex SharePoint development process were reduced by using best practices and implementation of quality gates. Steria also offered highly scalable architecture and development resources that could be scaled up or down to meet any situation. 2013-11-25-Success-Story-Anonymised-EIM.Docx Page 1 of 2
  • How we worked together Results and benefits Close collaboration between Steria’s dedicated SharePoint professionals and its client throughout this change process was essential. Everyone was committed to the same outcome: to implement stable applications with a high quality standard. The implementation of Steria’s development and staging service resulted in high quality SharePoint applications development and a smooth, integrated staging over all environments: integration, quality assurance and production. The Steria development service team consisted of: Further benefits accruing to the business during the SharePoint development process included: A service manager/project manager A scalable developer team able to add or reduce resources when required A staging team with responsibility for the initialisation and execution of the staging process. The Steria service manager regularly discussed new demands with the client and aligned a developer team with each changing need. Each team worked in tandem with a dedicated client project manager to meet the specific demand and deploy the finished solution using the staging services from a defined service catalogue. With responsibility for the quality gates, the staging team reported all breaches of the quality rules back. This allowed the project team to fix any errors. Reduced risk in the complex SharePoint development process when operating in a shared environment through the use of Steria’s SharePoint lifecycle management tools; Flexible resourcing ensured the business always had the correct scale of development resources for any planned projects; Cost savings as a result of using an integrated near and offshore service delivery model or a payper-use model. Steria’s development and staging services gave its client and the wider group a robust and scalable service to handle all application requests. Close collaboration between developers and the business means that all new SharePoint applications are wholly aligned with strategic intent. “Steria set up a professional and repeatable devolopment process for the design of SharePoint applications. This meant that we were quickly in the position to bring SharePoint applications into operation – quality assured, repeatable and scaled for big corporations.” Client spokesperson About Steria Steria delivers IT enabled business services and is the Trusted Transformation Partner for private and public sector organisations across the globe.
