Six New SharePoint POC Offerings
4. Enterprise Content Management POC
SharePoint 2013 delivers core content management capabilities in a single, extensible platform. These capabilities are central to the SharePoint platform and provide a consistent approach to managing traditional content (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF), Web content, and social content (blogs, wikis). By taking an integrated approach to Enterprise Content Management (ECM), SharePoint 2013 can reduce the need to maintain multiple systems and develop costly integration solutions.
The eDiscovery functionality in SharePoint Server 2013 provides improved ways to help you protect your business including eDiscovery queries across multiple SharePoint farms and Exchange servers, non-disruptive in-place preservation of documents and email, and support for exporting those documents and email messages. Atidan’s Planning & POC will address these core topics:
- Social Interaction
- Document Set Management
- Records Center
- Enterprise MetaData Management
- Search Visualization
5. Web Content Management POC
Web content management is a better experience in SharePoint Server 2013. Not only can content authors cut and paste content directly from Word and have the resulting semantically correct HTML markup display in the styles that were defined by the site designer, but site owners and designers can now customize the global and current navigation menus by dragging and dropping menu items directly on the page.
There are many new features that improve video and image handling, as well as inserting page external components via iframes using industry standard web development. Other powerful new features in SharePoint Server 2013 include Topic Pages for easily managing and presenting catalog information, tight integration with the native search engine and improved multi-lingual support. In addition, SharePoint 2013 supports many new mobile computing capabilities like device channels to target content to specific display platforms, a new geolocation data type and push notifications. Atidan’s Planning and POC will address:
- Easy Content Authoring & Management Managed Navigation
- Targeted User Experiences Content Re-Use
- Search As Content Provider Multi-Lingual Support
6. Business Intelligence POC
Business intelligence (BI) in SharePoint 2013 provides comprehensive BI tools that integrate across Microsoft Office applications and other Microsoft technologies.
These BI tools are: Excel 2013, Excel Services in SharePoint 2013, PerformancePoint Services in SharePoint Server 2013, Visio Services in SharePoint, SharePoint 2013, and Microsoft SQL Server. Atidan’s Planning and POC will address:
- Excel & Excel Services
- Powerview and PowerPivot
- Visio Services
- Performance Point Services
- SQL Reporting Services with SharePoint Integration
7. Social POC
Social computing isn’t just a new set of tools – it’s a new way of thinking about organizations. It’s about putting people at the center of the organization and ensuring that customers, employees, partners can connect with the people and information that they need to actually get their work done.
The social computing and collaboration features in SharePoint Server 2013 and Yammer offer an improved administration and user experience, in addition to new functionality for enterprise users to share and collaborate with others in their organization. The introduction of Community Sites offers a forum experience to categorize discussions around subject areas, and connect users who have knowledge or seek knowledge about subject areas. Improvements to My Sites offer a more intuitive workflow for users to develop their personal profiles, store content, and keep up-to-date with activities of interest. Atidan’s Planning and POC will focus on:
- Personal Sites
- Team & Project Sites
8. Search POC
Search in SharePoint Server 2013 is a single unified platform that combines an integrated, easy-to-manage query and data integration platform with native integration of the best-of-breed core enterprise search technology to give users the ability to find the content, information, and people they need.
New Search features in SharePoint Server 2013 make it easier for you to locate more relevant information and find colleagues quickly and efficiently. And now, user behavior influences the relevance of documents, bringing more popular results to the top of the list over time. Other key improvements include search UI changes that allow you to look into the search results with a simple roll-over instead of having to click into the document, as well as powerful new ways to process Query Rules and Results Sets.
9. SharePoint Apps Planning
The new apps model for SharePoint provides a new method to deliver specific information or functionality to a SharePoint site. An app for SharePoint is a small, easy-to-use, stand-alone app that solves a specific end-user or business need. Site owners can discover and download apps for SharePoint from a public SharePoint Store or from their organization’s internal App Catalog and install them on their SharePoint sites. These apps for SharePoint integrate the best of the web with SharePoint 2013. They do not replace SharePoint features and solution packages, which customize or enhance SharePoint sites.
Unlike features and solutions, which farm or site collection administrators have to install, apps for SharePoint are stand-alone applications that owners of sites can add to their SharePoint sites. The apps for SharePoint have a simple lifecycle – they can be installed, upgraded, and uninstalled by site owners. Atidan’s Planning engagement will focus on:
- The new Apps model
- Business Connectivity Services
Atidan customizes every planning and proof-of-concept engagement to meet our client needs.
