Microsoft Cloud Strategy

Newsletter
Q3 - 2013

The appetite for improvements in IT continues to grow and Netwoven has had another 6 months of growth–both in its project and staffing businesses. We continue to serve clients with Microsoft, SAP and Salesforce.com solutions, integrating applications to enhance speed-to-decision in a competitive environment. Below are highlights of some accomplishments:

  • Designed and implemented SharePoint 2013 with several customers, increasing their internal collaboration and communication abilities.
  • Designed and implemented Social intranets for organizations as they begin to make the intranets more interactive, providing for increased sharing of ideas and IP among and between internal teams.
  • Performed several FAST ESP migrations to SharePoint 2013 as organizations migrate away from FAST ESP before Microsoft ends support for this product.
  • Planned and deployed more organizations to Office 365 as cloud implementation increases in organizations and the revolution in adoption continues.
  • Designed and implemented several Business intelligence applications for customers on SharePoint 2013 using SQL Server 2012 and its BI components. These BI solutions frequently utilize data from disparate sources, providing rapid access to dashboards and scorecards which facilitates cost-savings and agility for our clients to quickly adapt to an ever-changing marketplace.
  • Integrated SharePoint and Salesforce.com, providing an easy-to-use interface for CRM functions.

Microsoft recently hosted its annual worldwide partner conference in Houston. As it has done for the past 12 years, Netwoven participated and I’d like to highlight insights from the event that can have implications on your IT strategy:

  • Microsoft’s Cloud strategy has reached “version 3.0.” Those of you who have used Microsoft products for some time know that when a product reaches version 3.0 in development cycles, it is “ready for prime time.” Netwoven is quite excited about the potential savings, convenience, and low cost of ownership Microsoft Office 365 offers to customers.
  • Increased use of the Cloud for SharePoint. The initial waves of Office 365 have been focused on Exchange and Lync. Now organizations are looking to move SharePoint to the Cloud and Microsoft is rapidly expanding its worldwide server infrastructure to support the exponential increase in customers who are adopting their platform.
  • Increased use of Hybrid rather than cloud-only infrastructure so applications / information can be on the cloud as well on software on-premise, allowing organizations to take advantage of the best of both worlds.

Netwoven’s Cloud Service business is thriving and we are actively working with organizations to move them to the Office 365 cloud as well as developing Windows Azure-based mission-critical applications. We’d be delighted to help you plan where and how to deploy your Cloud strategy—Please contact us for a confidential whiteboard strategy session.

Finally, we’re delighted to announce a move to our new office space in Kolkata! Located in the IT hub of Kolkata, the new location allows for expansion of our team in an area of the city where many multi-national corporations are also headquartered.
