How To Prepare Your Enterprise For SharePoint 2010

Email | Print

It is essential for the budding business or organization to make a habit of sharing data when it comes to effectively building an enterprise in this technical world. An up-to-date firm has more chance of competing in the marketplace than an organization which prefers to remain incognito. This is why it’s essential for burgeoning businesses to  collaborate with others in the field.

This is where Microsoft’s new state of the art software comes in. Microsoft SharePoint 2010 aids businesses in sharing, building, and organizing their online services easily, efficiently and effectively. How do you know if your business can benefit from SharePoint 2010? Find out what SharePoint 2010 is capable of, by asking questions or by reading blogs such as this one.

 This product is especially productive for professional SharePoint users who want to migrate to the updated version. However, if you find yourself at a loss regarding the conversion of your old SharePoint server to the new one, then you best look to the market for good Migration software.

Losing critical data can not only lead to a cancelled contract, but may also have a negative effect on any future endeavors. Migration software can make this transition relatively painless and easy with SharePoint Migration Tools being the most popular migration software out there. Surprisingly, the amount of data being transferred is not as important as the availability of SharePoint customization or web parts.

If you require a specialized migration procedure regarding the integrity of the data being transferred, you may want to have your SharePoint customized. Otherwise, you can use some free tools that are available in the market or online.

Additionally, it’s always a good idea to employ or train a Super User. This individual will have the privilege of coordinating any business related problems with SharePoint and devising effective solutions. The Super User will have in-depth knowledge of this application and will become your inhouse expert and go to person. If you can’t locate someone like this in your organization then train someone who you think is a good candidate.

Don’t pass the software to IT. This is the most common error most companies make when switching to SharePoint 2010.  Some enterprises think that this software requires a technical solution; not true.  SharePoint is an application and is a way of making work easier. It’s a business solution, first and foremost, rather than a technical one. It wasn’t designed to be used solely by the techies.

SharePoint 2010 is an excellent tool when it comes to managing and developing online content. It allows workers to spend less time filing and searching for information and more time thinking up better business solutions. Remember, this application is not a technological solution. It’s designed in a way that enables even the business minded to organize online files efficiently and effectively.
