A new framework & templates have just made it easier to deploy a SharePoint site
As one of the world’s leading tools for empowering teamwork and sharing data, SharePoint enables effortless collaboration with people in your organisation, improving productivity and helping to drive down costs.
Despite these obvious advantages, many organisations are put off implementing SharePoint for 2 reasons:
The initial capital infrastructure and ongoing support costs
The time needed for setup and configuration to meet your needs can seem prohibitive, making a rapid ROI seem unlikely
These factors have sometimes led to SharePoint being wrongly overlooked in favour of workflow solutions that do not provide the same app integrations and robust flexibility.
SharePoint Online – reduced costs and faster implementation
SharePoint Online overcomes these challenges:
The initial capital infrastructure and ongoing support costs are replaced by a simple monthly user subscription
Scalable and easily manageable cost control, with no worries about under licensing or initial capital investment
Better compatibility with the Office 365 suite
Flexibility for businesses to manage user identification and improve collaboration
SharePoint Framework to meet the needs of a mobile and cloud-based world
The recently announced SharePoint Framework has been designed to make implementation easier and faster in today’s mobile and cloud-based world. With a new UI and a more responsive experience it is context aware, allowing end users to easily add functionality to their SharePoint experience.
This makes SharePoint Online easier to implement, it also offers backward compatibility to ensure that existing SharePoint investments you have already made can be easily updated, and incorporated into your new system.
SharePoint templates enable rapid implementation of many different site types
To make implementation even quicker, there are now a large number of code templates available, allowing for the rapid creation of a customised SharePoint site. Templates are prebuilt definitions designed around a particular business need. You can use these templates ‘out-of-the-box’ to create your own SharePoint site and then customise the site as much as you want.
Templates include sites for: team, blog, project, community, document centre, records centre, business intelligence and many more.
