Help deciding which version of SharePoint is right for you

Our Microsoft Certified team will help you decide between SharePoint 2019 and Online to help you decide which is best for your needs.

SharePoint will greatly enhance collaboration by simplifying business processes, enhancing productivity and the sharing of information across your business. Depending on your specific needs, you can deploy SharePoint in several ways:

  • SharePoint Online hosted in Microsoft’s Cloud as part of Office 365
  • SharePoint 2019 hosted on virtual servers in Azure or AWS
  • SharePoint 2019 hosted locally on your own infrastructure
  • A hybrid of cloud and locally hosted application and data to maximise security

Our expert team will help your business decide between SharePoint Online vs on premise so that the solution selected meets both your current needs and objectives as well as future proofing your business.

SharePoint online vs on premise. Which is best for your business?

Although they are the same system there are a number of differences between SharePoint on premise and online. Companies who are looking at the right solution for their business should compare the options and functionality carefully as selecting the wrong one in the planning phase could mean not streamlining their business operations and processes and maximising their return on investment.

Did You Know

Making the wrong decision between SharePoint Online and the on-premises version 2019 can increase your business costs and reduce ROI

A SharePoint on-premise deployment is stored locally on your business IT infrastructure. This will need to be maintained by an internal team but access can be strictly controlled to only users in your own organisation or those that you specifically allow access to.

Alternatively, SharePoint online, as the name suggests, is hosted in the cloud. It has been designed with companies who have multiple sites or remote workers that do not share infrastructure but need to be able to collaborate and share data.

Businesses will often struggle to decide which SharePoint environment is best for them or even if a hybrid version is required. As one of the UK’s leading SharePoint specialists igroup can guide your organisation through the decision-making process between online and on premises outlining the benefits and limitations of each deployment and how each will help you meet your business objectives.

At igroup our SharePoint specialists will work with your business to compare the online vs on premises environments including:

  • Cost – We consider all factors including number of users, amount of data etc.
  • Location – Where is it best to store your data? How sensitive is it or how quickly do you need access?
  • Maintenance – Do you have the internal skills required to carry out maintenance and upgrades?
  • Scalability – Will the amount of data you store continue to grow and how quickly?
  • Management – Do you have the right skills to support the deployment?
  • Infrastructure – Will your current infrastructure support SharePoint?

Our experts help you plan your deployment using the correct version of SharePoint for your needs.
