Our SharePoint Health Check can highlight where your systems align with
recommended best practices, and identify where your existing implementation is
in alignment with your business needs. We can identify how you can increase
operational efficiency, maximize system uptime, and reduce costs through
examination of the most critical aspects of your SharePoint environment.
A Health Check helps expose vulnerabilities in your SharePoint infrastructure
and operational processes. The health check reveals the causes of problems, not
just the symptoms, helping you to take a proactive approach in addressing the
problems. This proactive approach can help optimize productivity and uncover
potential risks before they affect users and drive up support costs.
A Health Check can address your key needs now, as well as your projected
needs over the next few years. The SharePoint Health Check provides minimal
intrusion to your IT systems, while gathering key data, and we have a strict
policy of non-intervention throughout the Health Check.
We will produce a report, analyzing the information/data gathered on site,
and providing a summary of our findings. This report will include a description
of the risks involved with the current implementation, and highlighting any
problem areas. In addition, it will provide recommendations for the short term
and longer term, to enhance and improve your business’ SharePoint experience.
