Technical Case Study Technical Case Study Document Transcript

  • Client Profile Location: Akron, Ohio Industry: Health and Hygiene Benefits:  Updated and fully supported Windows 7 environment  Enhanced usability  More efficient and productive work environment  Positioned company to take advantage of future emerging technologies Migration to SharePoint 2010 Transforms Computing Environment and Increases Efficiency A  skin  health  and  hygiene  solutions  company  hired  Blue  Chip  Consulting  Group  to                               upgrade  its  core  collaboration  technology  offering  to  the  business  by  migrating  its  core   internal  Microsoft  Office  SharePoint  Server  2007  environment  to  a  Microsoft  SharePoint   Server  2010  environment.   Situation Blue  Chip  Consulting  Group’s  client  was  facing  business  inefficiency  due  to  poor                                 performance  of  their  existing  Microsoft  Office  SharePoint  Server  2007  environment.   Web  pages  could  take  up  to  15  seconds  to  load;;  decreasing  efficiency  and  productivity.   Search  and  browser  support  needed  to  be  improved,  and  mobility  increased.  With                             custom  code,  the  need  for  automation,  and  integration  of  programs  like  Visio,  the  client   was  looking  for  a  trusted  partner  to  assist  in  the  adoption  of  SharePoint  Server  2010.   The  success  of  previous  engagements,  coupled  with  a  strong  understanding  of                             SharePoint,  drove  the  client  to  re-engage  with  Blue  Chip.  Through  multiple  project   phases  Blue  Chip  would  use  its  knowledge  of  the  client’s  environment  and  SharePoint   expertise  to  successfully  migrate  4  servers  and  data  base  clusters  with  over  1,000                             users  to  a  more  efficient  environment. Solution Working  with  the  client  Blue  Chip  first  designed  the  production  server  environments,   including  index,  query,  database  and  front-end  web  servers.  In  a  build  phase,  the  client   created  the  Virtual  Machines  and  Database  server  before  Blue  Chip  laid  SharePoint   2010  and  configured  the  SharePoint  farm.  In  order  to  allow  the  client  to  gauge  the   amount  of  custom  code  that  would  need  to  be  re-written  for  the  2010  environment  as   quickly  as  possible  Blue  Chip  performed  a  test  migration  within  several  days  of  the                         project.  Detailed  testing  followed  as  issues  were  logged  and  solved  by  Blue  Chip.                           Iterative  testing  of  the  migration  was  also  performed  shortly  after  prototyping.  With  the   initial  project  phases  successfully  completed,  Blue  Chip  moved  into  the  production   phase.  Over  the  course  of  three  days  Blue  Chip  sent  the  environment  into  production   and  handled  the  Go-Live  phase  with  speed  and  efficiency  so  that  users  were  able  to   start  the  following  work  week  on  the  new  SharePoint  2010  environment.   For More Information Blue Chip Consulting Group Corporate Headquarters 6050 Oak Tree Boulevard Suite 310 Independence, Ohio 44131 P: (+1) 216.503.6000 E: info@bluechip-llc.com W: www.bluechip-llc.com This  case  study  is  for  informa onal   purposes  only.  Blue  Chip    MAKES  NO   WARRANTIES,  EXPRESSED  OR  IMPLIED,   IN  THIS  SUMMARY. Document  published  September  2012 Results   This  solution  moved  the  client  to  a  more  efficient  and  modern  environment,  while                           maintaining  the  same  look  and  feel  of  SharePoint  2007  that  users  were  familiar  with.   There  is  now  continuity  and  usability  not  available  in  the  old  environment.  With                                 SharePoint  2010  the  client  has  the  ability  to  create  and  automate  basic  workflows,  like   budget  initiators,  a  process  that  was  done  manually  prior  to  migration.  Integration  with                                   Windows  7  and  Visio  has  improved,  pages  are  rendered  within  seconds  and  users  have   become  increasingly  more  mobile.  Browsers  like  Google  Chrome  are  now  supported   and  users  have  flexibility  like  never  before.  Migration  to  SharePoint  2010  increased   productivity  by  three  times  and  aligned  the  client’s  technical  goals  with  business                                 strategies;;  both  factors  that  allow  the  client  to  maintain  a  competitive  edge  in  the                                   industry  and  drive  future  success.
