By properly understanding SharePoint, and what SharePoint means to your organisation, 3grow can work with you to identify, grow, and maintain the skills and capabilities your organisation needs to leverage the power of SharePoint.

The SharePoint Shift

For many years the focus of software solutions has been on the requirements, the features, and the development centred project that delivers the solution. With the emergence of Microsoft’s commoditised products and platforms such as SharePoint, Office, Dynamics CRM, Navision, this focus needs to shift to ensure that organisations achieve the best return on investment in Information Technology and reduce their total cost of ownership for delivering software solutions.

The new focus needs to be on empowering an organisation to leverage and extend the technology platforms and products that they have invested in.

As the demands and expectations from business users on Information Technology groups grow, and the demands and expectations from customers on businesses grow, organisations need to do more with less. This ultimately means making everyone more productive!

SharePoint Server, the Office suite, and the wider Microsoft ecosystem in which SharePoint and Office exist, require a shifting of focus and approach across Information Technology and Information Management within todays organisations. The traditional skills and capabilities focus within the Microsoft technology domain has been on software developers, and systems engineers (called IT Pros by Microsoft) and while these remain important they do not cover the breadth of skills now needed to ensure both the initial success and the on-going success of SharePoint Server. Organisations need skills and capabilities in SharePoint server administration, SharePoint site administration, information architecture, SharePoint composites, and end user adoption (usability, training, and support).

Through leveraging in house people and external SharePoint specialists organisations can have the right skills and capabilities available to leverage the SharePoint platform and ultimately make everyone more productive.
