HexaCorp’s Roadmap to SharePoint
The biggest challenge in today’s information-based society lies in managing Electronic Documents.
Personal computers and email inboxes have become storage repositories, shared drives are disorganized
and inefficient search tools make finding relevant information a difficult task.
Fundamental issues are:
Information is scattered
Multiple copies of the same document
Tracking and Modifying changes is not straightforward.
Merging changes from multiple users can be problematic.
No Proper Reporting and Dashboard for management
No Proper Project Management
Common tools available for addressing these issues can be technically complex and difficult to integrate
with existing business processes and procedures. A practical yet effective solution can allow an organization
to focus on delivering value to their core business instead of being burdened by information management
Workplace information is generally unstructured Life
Work processes are unstructured and scattered across
Unstructured information has no controls in place
No proper workflow automation process exist for their business function
No proper portal solution where an employee could look for all the information to perform his day-to-day
No Proper reporting to allow management to make informed decisions.
What is Portal Technology
A corporate portal is a gateway through which members can access business information and, if set up
properly, should be the first place an employee goes to access anything of importance.
Portals differ from regular websites in that they are customized specifically around a business process.
In SharePoint, a portal may actually consist of numerous websites, with information stored either directly on
those sites or in other systems, such as file share, business applications, or a regular Internet website.
Because making informed business decisions is key to becoming and remaining successful, it’s important
that the information you place on a portal is secure up-to-date, and easily accessible.
As an example, consider a new employee who has just joined an organization. In addition to learning her new
job responsibilities, this employee must quickly get up-to-speed on the various company processes and
policies. A good portal should provide all the company reference and policy information systems and
websites that employee needs to do her job.
Why to invest in Portal Technology
Web based, help decision makers make informed decision regardless of their location.
Handle day-to-day tasks from a single starting point
To maintain proper audit trail. Ex. Sarbanes Oxley and CFR Park11
Store and share information based on the organizational structure, making them intuitive to everyone in the
organization. This structure translates into productivity boosts workers can more easily locate and retrieve
Portal technologies such as SharePoint scale with an organization, offering a model that will grow as your
While the typical business portal product incorporates many common business practices, your
organizational needs may dictate a customized process. Because SharePoint offers an extensible
infrastructure, you can build custom solutions.
Although a company may be tempted by the latest and greatest information management system, most
organizations still have legacy systems and data sources. You can massage portal technologies to integrate
with these systems, allowing easier data mining or migration.
What is SharePoint
SharePoint is an extensible and scalable web-based platform consisting of tools and technologies that
collectively form what’s known as SharePoint Products and Technologies.
SharePoint is a platform on which you can build business applications to help you better store, share,
and manage digital information within your organization. Because you can build with or without the need
for code, the package empowers the average business user to create, deploy and manage team
websites, without depending on skilled resources, such as systems administrators or developers.
Using lists, libraries, and Web Pars you can transform team websites into business applications built
specifically around making your organization’s business processes more efficient:
