Strategy & Planning

​​​​​​​​With a long history in delivering SharePoint-based solutions, we’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly in terms of portal development and use. Our team understands the challenges involved and the approach needed to succeed. Our suite of advisory services, driven by our Envision approach, provides the guidance your organization needs to make informed decisions and get it right.

  • Assessment and Planning Services
    If your organization is at the early stages of considering a new or improved knowledge portal or collaborative workspace but not sure what steps to take, Portal Solutions can help by assessing your current business and technical environments and help plan the next steps to get you on your way. 

  • Envision/Roadmap
    Portal Solutions begins every implementation with an initial in-depth Envision phase in order to frame the overall vision and direction. This phase consists of a series of meetings, research and analysis, and discussions between Portal Solutions and specific stakeholder groups to confirm needs and objectives, define and document the high-level system architecture, and prepare a roadmap for implementation. While this is the critical first step in any implementation, an Envision engagement is offered as a standalone service to help your organization prioritize, plan, and prepare for a subsequent design and implementation effort.

  • Site Strategy
    Whether you are planning a corporate Intranet, extranet portal, or publicly facing Website, it is important that the design and implementation aligns with your organizational business objectives and end-user expectations. With our deep experience implementing complex SharePoint solutions and our User Experience services, Portal Solutions will work with you to develop an appropriate strategy that aligns site structure, features, user audiences, and metrics to ensure solution that deliver measurable value.
