Success Stories: Cloud Manage
A global company, established more than a century ago, with leading brands in household goods and cleaning products. Today this company’s products are marketed in over 100 countries and nearly 90 percent of its brands hold the No. 1 or No. 2 market share positions in their categories. This company continues to be committed to innovation and expand its products into additional consumer markets such as personal care products, pet products, dressings and sauces, and water filtration products.
Management decided to utilize cloud based services to reduce the cost of running a SharePoint environment on-premise. All of the existing customizations and content that resided on the on premise environment need to be moved into the Microsoft Online Services (MSO) dedicated cloud environment. In order for the environment to be migrated to MSO, all of the customizations needed to adhere to the rules and regulations of the environment.
Valore Partners offered business and technical expertise by creating a Center of Excellence (COE) to migrate the environment into the MSO environment. This provided the company with a dedicated management and development team to interface with MSO as well as refactor the existing customizations to meet MSO guidelines.
As a result of our effort, the business is able to sunset the existing on-premise environment and transition all users to a cloud based solution.
The following benefits were realized:
· No data center maintenance or server infrastructure overhead
· More tightly-managed customization environment, leading to greater stability
· Less management overhead
· Visual Studio
· SharePoint Online
