The Challenge

In 2008 Duke University alumni association was overwhelmed by paper processes and contacted us for a SharePoint solution to their process management challenges.

What We Did

We migrated several disparate 2007 farms to one centralized farm location and set up Microsoft ISA 2006 as a smart firewall. We then managed their SharePoint farm for several years, did an upgrade from 2007 to 2010, managed their firewall, forms-based authentication, and built document management solutions.

We then Outlook publishing using RPC over HTTP,  Also provides was forms-based authentication, and document management apps to include these following features:

    • Findability of documents
        • Search customization
        • Tagging of documents
        • Standardized hierarchies
    • Portability of documents
        • Emailing docs to SharePoint with auto-filing/tagging of doc
        • Standardized hierarchies
    • Compliance with legal
      • Retention duration
      • Auto archival and deletion
    • Security of documents: who can see what and what degree of the desired auditing
    • Governance of documents
      • Defined tags (to aid search)
      • Standardized hierarchies so users intuitively know where to locate or place documents.
