Partner Post: Planning for a SharePoint Cloud Migration

Make Your Cloud Move a Reality with DocPoint

dps-logoWith an increased focus on the mobile enterprise and “anytime, anywhere” collaboration, more organizations are embracing a cloud strategy.

While cloud-based enterprise content management (ECM) promises a wealth of benefits (from greater accessibility to cost savings), many organizations are falling victim to the same content management strategy of the past. Nowadays, a vast amount of content is available in various types of formats further complicating the issue.

A successful SharePoint cloud migration is contingent upon appropriate planning and creating the right content and/or records management plan. A strategic partner of the Fpweb.NETWORK, DocPoint Solutions understands the importance of an enterprise content strategy and works in partnership with to support and streamline SharePoint Cloud migrations.

DocPoint is a Microsoft Partner with Gold Competency that specializes in implementing, training and supporting SharePoint and its integrated suite of products. With a focus on ECM and document capture, they provide comprehensive consultative services and support to a wide range of federal, state and local governments as well as private and commercial enterprises seeking to maximize their SharePoint investment.

The DocPoint Difference

DocPoint’s expertise goes above and beyond SharePoint migrations. For every project, they identify the client’s vision by first performing a thorough business process analysis to determine how to best align the technology with the user’s end goals. Then, DocPoint helps define a strategy for reviewing and organizing enterprise content: What should be moved? What can be eliminated or left behind? What is the best way to classify and index this content?

Afterwards, DocPoint formulates and implements the migration plan that is ideal for the client. Throughout the process, DocPoint has the option of pulling in multiple third-party vendors to make sure that it’s able to match the right tools to the project, thereby limiting downtime and end-user disruption during the transition.

DocPoint also leverages the synergy with its parent company, Quality Associates, Inc. (QAI), to bring its ECM projects full circle. QAI’s customized document capture and imaging solutions and services turn printed materials and electronic information into useful, organized data that can be readily located and accessed by authorized users in SharePoint.
