BaseCamp October 2013

SHAREPOINT ONLINE SOLVES DIVISION OF CONTROL AND COST

 

SharePoint Online in Office 365 has been significantly improved and has evolved into a true collaboration platform. Businesses can finally harness the power of Office 365 for enterprise-level applications. In our latest whitepaper, you’ll learn why Office 365 SharePoint is better than previous versions and how to migrate your data there. We’ll discuss the out-of-the-box migration options as well as what to look for in a third-party tool.The undertaking of a migration is quite a significant project. You’ll need to treat it with care, so we’ll spend ample time analyzing the importance of pre-migration readiness. We’ll also take a look at whether you should consider moving your entire data set to Office 365, or keep some of it in your private data center.

WHERE DOES THE CLOUD MAKE SENSE?

 

Does the Business Really Care?

Ultimately, I don’t think the business really cares that much about the cloud. They care about getting what they need when they need it. I believe the cloud can be successfully IT-initiated if it enables them to respond to business requests more quickly. Isn’t there the repeated sentiment that IT is too slow and doesn’t serve the business the way they need? IT can be the service provider it’s supposed to be if it’s able to successfully flex into the cloud. It’s like with virtual machines (VMs) – do you really think the business user cares if their CMS is running on a VM instead of a physical server? Of course not. They simply need the service that the CMS provides. So again, IT can successfully make the case for the cloud if they use it as a means to fulfill the requests coming in from the business.

 

 

 

A SOLUTION THAT PROACTIVELY ADDRESSES RISKS, NOW HIGHLY RECOGNIZEd

 

Earlier this year, we introduced our Compliance QuickStart solution to market. The solution was developed to answer the need for a platform strategy that protects confidential information and ensures regulatory compliance within SharePoint. We wanted to develop a solution to proactively address risks, protect reputations and potential for litigation, as well as save time and money in a fast-track set up for our customers.

 

We were excited to that KMWorld magazine had took notice. Compliance QuickStart was recognized a “2013 Trend-Setting Product” for a technology breakthrough that serves the full spectrum of customers.

 

 

 

ACCELERATED GROWTH THROUGH CONTINUED CUSTOMER SERVICE

 

 

We have maintained an accelerated growth through our methodology that quickly and efficiently provides productive collaboration, Enterprise Content Management and Web Content Management platforms to mid-size and enterprise customers.

 

As announced on the CRN Fast Growth 150 annual list, we have become recognized as one of the fastest-growing solution providers in the technology industry. Listed at #21, Summit 7 Systems grew 145% based on the ability to implement technology solutions that truly align with our customer’s strategic objectives.

 

 

 

TABBED WEBPARTS IN SHAREPOINT 2013/OFFICE 365

 

I think many would agree with me that one of the best things to ever happen to SharePoint 2007 in terms of an improved user experience was Christophe’s EasyTabs over at Path To SharePoint. This script turned several web parts that were stacked on top of each other into a much more elegant tabbed view.
