Defining the key elements for SharePoint Migration, such as:
Overall Approach

The overall approach to your SharePoint upgrade or migration initiative depends on the current user base, content, configurations, and customizations of your existing SharePoint environment.

Solutions

Developing digital solutions for organizations using multiple SharePoint versions, non-SharePoint systems, or multiple Information Architecture and System Architecture editions and ensure these applications are compatible and supportive (example-organizations having both SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2016 environments).

Upgrade & Migration Options

Provide upgrade and migration options that align with any possible budgetary constraints to implement the project, either with a phased approach or a “big bang” approach.

(IA) Re-Design, Site Consolidation & Content Clean-Ups

Provide information architecture (IA) re-design, site consolidation, content clean-up, and content migration to the existing SharePoint environment before the migration.

Interoperability

Ensure a secure collaboration so that existing custom features or business workflows are “interoperable” between the existing SharePoint 2010 platform and the newer SharePoint 2016 or 2019 environment.

SharePoint Governance Strategy

EPC Group is a recognized industry leader for developing and implementing SharePoint governance strategy for versions 2016/2019, Office 365, and SharePoint Online. Besides, we also create a customized strategy for other technologies used for integrating SharePoint, such as Microsoft Exchange, Skype for Business 2019, and Project Server.

Our governance strategies also cover custom software development, code promotional, and application lifecycle management (ALM). Governance is a cardinal component to ensure long-term success and is unique for every organization. With our governance strategies, it becomes easy for organizations to define who will manage the overall platform and related granular roles and responsibilities within the organization to establish rules for its appropriate usage.

Our development team designs a detailed governance strategy considering how you want the business and the technical team to leverage the environment. It comes with well-defined procedures to incorporate growth, and future change focuses on maintaining a balance between restrictions and enterprise compliance policies. EPC Group has been developing governance strategies for the past 20 years, and our plan covers almost all the scenarios you might experience throughout the platform lifecycle.

FOUR MAJOR PILLARS OF EPC GROUP’S GOVERNANCE STRATEGIES:

People

Roles and responsibilities

Process

How to accomplish common tasks as well as new business and technology requests

Technology

Leveraging features and tools to enforce policies

Policy

Collection of principles and clear definitions on how the platform is utilized

One of the substantial elements setting EPC Group apart from the competition is our approach to implement a successful SharePoint 2019 governance strategy. We do it in a manner and mindset that reflects “operational governance” as we configure the underlying platform and its configuration to enforce governance and its related policies.
