    • 1. SharePoint WSS & MOSS 2007 Business and Decision Capabilities Lou Abbruzzesi, SharePoint SME – Business & Decision
    • 2. Introduction
      • Business and Decision offers a wide range of SharePoint (WSS & MOSS 2007) services in these categories:
        • Inception and Discovery
        • Resource Planning
        • Physical Architecture and Farm Topology
        • Information Architecture
        • Application Requirements Gathering
        • System Implementation / Integration
        • Application Support and Monitoring
        • Backup / Restore and Disaster Recovery
        • Long Term Growth Strategies
    • 3. Inception and Discovery
      • Business and Decision can help companies to leverage SharePoint to improve their business by:
      • Assessing current business processes and identifying pain points that can be minimized or eliminated using SharePoint technologies.
      • Building demonstrations and prototypes that demonstrate possible solutions to specific problems in a client’s organization.
      • Assisting in building a business case for the implementation of a SharePoint solution.
      • Most adopters of SharePoint will start small. Business and Decision can help to envision and communicate a longer term vision for SharePoint within a client’s current /future information architecture.
    • 4. Resource Planning
      • Business and Decision can assist in resource planning for a successful implementation of SharePoint
      • Human Resources – B&D helps identify the roles and responsibilities (internal and external) that are necessary for a successful implementation of SharePoint based solutions.
      • Hardware and Infrastructure – B&D can assess a client’s current environment and make suggestions for initial implementation and long-term growth.
      • Software and Licensing – B&D can assist in licensing options.
    • 5. Physical Architecture and Farm Topology
      • Business and Decision can recommend, implement and host the appropriate physical architecture and farm topology for a client’s short term and long term needs.
      • Farm Topology – B&D will help architect a farm topology that will meet current needs, and position the client to grow.
      • Hardware – B&D can recommend the appropriate hardware, storage capacity and networking configuration necessary to support the desired topology.
    • 6. Information Architecture
      • Business and Decision can help define SharePoint’s short term and long term role in the organization’s Information Architecture.
      • B&D will help identify a starting point for the adoption of SharePoint within an organization, with the goal of providing the best short term ROI, and a successful foundation for future growth.
      • After a successful initial engagement, B&D can help identify other projects within the organization with good ROI.
      • SharePoint is often used to replace or augment existing systems, and B&D can identify possible replacement/improvement opportunities to make SharePoint a more integral part of the overall Information Architecture.
      • B&D can help integrate other LOB systems into the SharePoint framework through Out-Of-The-Box configuration, third party add-ons and custom development.
    • 7. Business Analysis and Requirements Gathering
      • Business and Decision can work with stakeholders and users within the organization to specify the requirements for SharePoint - based solutions.
      • B&D can help clients avoid re-implementing existing problems in a new technology. We understand the business needs before proposing a solution.
      • B&D can identify and suggest business process improvements that can be realized by leveraging the bundled capabilities of SharePoint.
      • B&D can perform the necessary business analysis and produce requirements specifications for a successful SharePoint implementation.
      • B&D is knowledgeable about available third party products, and product integration kits that can be used to enhance the no-coding capabilities of SharePoint.
    • 8. System Implementation and Integration
      • When desired customizations fall outside the capabilities of the Out-Of-Box components, B&D has the expertise to develop specific required functionality and incorporate it into the SharePoint solution.
      • B&D has extensive expertise in customizing the user experience, and branding SharePoint-based systems.
      • B&D has expertise in developing and deploying reusable web-parts using Microsoft’s recommended best practices to protect a client’s investment.
      • B&D can develop and deploy reusable workflows to be used within the organization. Automating processes is one of the ‘sweet spots’ of SharePoint, and B&D can help get the most out of the robust Windows Workflow Foundation.
      • B&D can integrate other LOB applications into SharePoint-based solutions using bundled components and custom development when necessary.
    • 9. Application Support and Monitoring
      • When SharePoint solutions have been deployed, or when they already exist in the organization, B&D can help insure a reliable, high performance platform through automated monitoring.
      • OS-Level Monitoring -- SharePoint clients have access to all of the OS-Level monitoring and alerting mechanisms offered to other B&D managed clients.
      • SharePoint Platform Monitoring – B&D can monitor the overall health of the SharePoint platform by polling the system, and interacting with the platform through a suite of scripts to verify the health of the system.
      • Application Monitoring – B&D can develop requested monitoring scripts to provide application-level monitoring where it makes sense.
      • B&D can detect and respond to problems before your users know there is a problem.
    • 10. Backup / Restore and Disaster Recovery
      • Business and Decision’s SharePoint customers will have access to Backup / Restore and Disaster Recovery services available to B&Ds other managed clients.
      • B&D can provide full fidelity scheduled backups, and SharePoint Farm restoration services.
      • B&D provides services to quickly duplicate virtualized (maybe non virtualized too) SharePoint farms to produced up-to date platforms for development and staging. The ability to create a replica environment is crucial for development and testing.
