When you’re creating a new corporate intranet or implementing tools to improve knowledge sharing and collaboration in your organization, success or failure often depends on the design of these solutions. For your organization to get the most from business information and content, that information must be easy to find.
That’s why many organizations benefit from working with our SharePoint experts to develop effective information design and governance strategy. Here are some of the ways we help to create well-designed technology solutions:
1. Information Architecture Design
2. Governance Strategy
Effective information design means tailoring your metadata, site navigation and search tools and other functionalities to improve the findability of your information. While SharePoint has sophisticated features that help with implementing information architecture, this architecture must be tailored to your specific business case and intended users.
Our SharePoint consultants draw on extensive application knowledge and information design principles to create an information architecture that meets your users’ expectations with respect to findability of information as well as overall usability.
A governance strategy focuses on the intersection of business users and information technology, and effective governance is critical for ongoing user adoption and a successful SharePoint strategy. Without it, a SharePoint implementation tends to grow unwieldy, resulting in poor user experience.
We’ll help design a governance strategy that standardizes and improves SharePoint management, empowering your organization with the right tools, processes and data to maintain a secure environment and adhere to government and industry regulations. Combining IT and site governance helps drive user adoption, ensure compliance and maximize knowledge sharing to ultimately deliver the best return on your technology investments.
