Hello,
Today I would like to talk about common ways to use SharePoint.

What is SharePoint? SharePoint history

SharePoint was launched by Microsoft in 2001 and it was called “SharePoint Portal Server 2001”. The first release of SharePoint was supposed to be a platform for document and content management. Over a decade has passed since that time and SharePoint has undergone multiple changes. The latest release of SharePoint has far more functionality. Nowadays it is usually called a business collaboration platform or application platform. Since SharePoint combines in itself various technologies, solutions and numerous features, it is extremely difficult to give an exact definition to what SharePoint is and what it is used for. In the internet you can find dozens of definitions and explanations.
Depending on the type of business, a SharePoint platform can serve different purposes. It is a centralized system that can be accessed through multiple devices connected to the internet, therefore the most significant function of SharePoint is to join all your employees from different departments, offices, buildings, cities or even countries, and provide them with a single place to complete their daily jobs and communicate with each other.
SharePoint brings benefits not only to large companies with multiple users, but also to small businesses of any type.

Common ways to use SharePoint sites

We can distinguish the following most common ways to use SharePoint:

Document and content management system – from the very beginning until the present day, SharePoint platforms are continuously used by many companies as a file share system with advanced settings. A centralized place where documents and files can be securely stored and easily accessed by end users, a role based security system and other powerful content management features draws the most attention from customers.

Company intranet SharePoint – most successful company intranet portals are built on a SharePoint platform. SharePoint provides tools for social networking, creating blog sites and company wikis. It provides an environment convenient for receiving the latest company news, announcements, scheduling and managing personal tasks, contacts and verifying the statuses of the latest projects.

Public facing website – SharePoint can also be used as a platform for a company’s website. It allows the creation of multiple publicly available pages with company information, text, images and graphics. SharePoint supports advanced HTML editing and all modern web technologies. This results in the ability to run a 100% custom branded site. SharePoint publishing features enable administrators to control the content, design and update pages, as well as manage permissions for the site.

Team collaboration – SharePoint is a perfect tool for your teams to coordinate on projects, connect to sites from different devices and receive notifications about updates. SharePoint allows team members to stay connected to the process, check project statuses, schedules, communicate with each other and access all information related to the project.

Business Analytics – SharePoint Business Intelligence features provide the ability to get critical information from the insights and, subsequently, to enhance productivity, improve decision-making and increase profits for the company. SharePoint allows the creation rich dashboards, graphs and charts, display trends, setup key performance indicators and a lot more to analyze company data.

And last but not the least, SharePoint can be customized for a company`s specific use. It can be adapted to perform functions that meet the needs of your business and are critical for your company’s success.

Hello,
An Intranet is an internal company portal that can be used to make team work more productive, effortless, cost effective and competitive. It is an essential part of the organization’s infrastructure. A successful SharePoint intranet usually has high usability because company owners have full control over the environment and know exactly who the users are and how they actually use intranet. Investments in intranet improvements are crucial since the intranet usability and high user adoption helps improve business productivity and therefore increase overall company profits.

SharePoint Intranet

SharePoint is one of the most widely used application platforms for a company’s intranet portal. According to the Nielsen Norman Group`s research, 70% of successful intranets are built on SharePoint. Additionally, Nielsen Norman Group determines 10 best intranet portals every year and the best ones for 2013 are:

    • Acorda Therapeutics, Inc. (Biotechnology, U.S.)
    • American International Group, Inc. (Insurance, U.S.)
    • AT&T (Telecommunications, U.S.)
    • Hager Group, (Manufacturing, Germany)
    • Luzerner Kantonalbank AG, (Financial company, Switzerland)
    • ONO (Telecommunications, Spain)
    • Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities (SCTA) (Government, Saudi Arabia)
    • Swiss Mobiliar Insurance & Pensions (Insurance, Switzerland)
    • WorkSafeBC (Government, Canada)
    • XL Group plc (Insurance, Ireland)
These companies are of different sizes and from different countries. These intranets are used for their entire organizations and have been designed to take into consideration specific company needs in their particular sphere of business.
To read about these companies please see the following page – 2013 Intranet Design Award Winners.

This research helps to specify the latest trends in the development of successful intranet portals. Let’s take a look at them.

  • Time for intranet design – the average time to create and design a portal is 3.5 years, but lately it has decreased to 2.3 years. The process of designing a company portal is not a simple task.
  • The size of an organization – it has become simpler for small companies to develop good company portals using modern technologies. The SharePoint platform provides a number of features for great intranet implementation with its social features, efficient MS Office integration, information search and filtering capabilities.
  • Intranet management team – nowadays it is important to involve more people in building a successful intranet site. It is impossible for a small team to design and manage an intranet portal that will completely satisfy the needs of all company employees and help improve collaboration and work productivity. The more people involved in the building process – the better the result will be for end users.
  • Consulting companies and developers – external consultants are usually involved in helping with SharePoint planning, development, design and branding. They serve to complete particular tasks in which your company`s team does not have enough expertise.
  • The authors of intranet content – it is important to consider the primary requirements of the employees when designing the intranet. The best way to ensure usability, high user adoption rates and relevant content inside the portal is to involve people from different offices and departments, the people who will use the site.
  • Feature and design development – the latest trend in intranets is to use such features as personalized pages, extended profiles, video channels and mega menus. The additional new features widely used are integration with social sites like Facebook or LinkedIn, and extended filters on site pages.
  • Out-of-the-box SharePoint capabilities – the built-in SharePoint features allow improvements in search experience and make document management easier with Office integration.
  • Educating employees about social and enterprise features of the platform – intranet users need to know the main usage rules and it is a good idea to provide a short guideline for them. It is also important to establish communication between teams and motivate users for commenting, sharing and creating conversations.
  • Permissions – complex site permissions can be a nightmare for your intranet management team. Nowadays most of the companies tend to protect business critical files by using simple permission strategies to avoid the unnecessary complexity.
The practice of a great number of companies from all over the world shows that the SharePoint platform is a perfect tool for designing a company’s intranet portal. Taking into consideration the latest trends, advances from SharePoint consultants and experienced users, you can build a powerful portal for your team and achieve better results.

  • SharePoint Foundation Development. You can use a lot of SharePoint Foundation default templates to get the functionality you need. There are templates for creating wikis, blogs and other social sites available with SharePoint Foundation.

Hello
Are you looking for a trustworthy and cost effective SharePoint Hosting 2013 Provider? Do you want a SharePoint site that does not lose your business data? Please read the following SharePoint hosting provider overview and so you can choose the best SharePoint hosting provider.

Considerations when choosing a SharePoint Hosting Provider

How to choose a qualified SharePoint Hosting provider?

Company owners and other decision makers can choose among several alternative SharePoint services that will be best for their company and provide the best return on investment. Here’s what to consider when choosing SharePoint for your business:

  • SharePoint Edition – First of all, you need to select the SharePoint version (2010 or 2013) you need and what feature edition, Foundation, Standard or Enterprise, has the most relevant features for you. Take a look at PlexHosted’s feature comparison page and see what features are best for your company and employees. This will help to determine what SharePoint edition works best for you.
  • SharePoint Storage and Users – How much storage is required for your site and how many users will be using it? Determine how many employees will need access to your site, and for what purposes it will used. This will help you to decide whether you need 500 Mb for simple document repository, or several GB for pictures, videos, forms, records, databases, and workbooks. Note that for a large storage requirement (from 100 GB) it may be more convenient and cost effective to setup a dedicated server. In addition PlexHosted has no user limits, so you can have 1, 2 or any other number of SharePoint users with the ability to increase/decrease the number of users and/or amount of storage at any time.
  • SharePoint Internet or Intranet site – Will you need to open your site to the public by enabling Anonymous access? The license for this feature is costly for Standard and Enterprise editions, so you should pay attention to this requirement. When choosing the proper SharePoint edition, SharePoint feature set and anonymous access are important to think about.

So now you know three main options that will assist you in choosing the best SharePoint hosting provider. Not all SharePoint hosting providers offer all SharePoint hosting plans with all the necessary features. It might be good for them, but will probably not work for you. PlexHosted offers four different SharePoint hosting plans: Foundation, Standard, Enterprise and Enterprise with PowerPivot which should meet your requirements. PlexHosted also offers multi-tenant hosting as well as dedicated servers for SharePoint hosting.

How to make sure you have chosen the best SharePoint hosting company with SharePoint experts?

The following guidelines will help you make sure you are working with SharePoint experts.

  • SharePoint support should be available 24/7/365 to help you resolve any issues or clarify configuration options.
  • 99.99% availability for SharePoint servers.
  • No hidden fees for SharePoint hosting services and support, and no hidden SharePoint limits.
  • Free SharePoint installation and configuration, free migration from other SharePoint hosting providers.

After answering these questions and putting together the necessary information, you will know what is needed for your business and find a perfect solution for you. But, if you still have questions, you are always free to ask PlexHosted’s SharePoint experts for their help. Since PlexHosted meets all these requirements you can be assured that you will be working with SharePoint experts.

Hello readers,
Need to learn about SharePoint licensing for a new project? Want to know how to pay the minimum price for the best SharePoint hosting? You are at the right place. In today’s post I`ll tell you about SharePoint hosting plans and SharePoint 2013 licensing.

SharePoint 2013 hosting plans

There are different SharePoint hosting environments, dedicated and multi-tenant and three SharePoint editions. All this can confuse end users which have not worked with SharePoint before. At first look, SharePoint licensing seems difficult to understand. But if we take a look at it more deeply you will learn that SharePoint licensing is pretty easy to understand.

SharePoint 2013 CALs Licensing

PlexHosted offers SharePoint in three editions: Foundation, Standard, and Enterprise. The main difference between editions is in the various SharePoint features (see SharePoint Features Comparison) and pricing for the Client Access Licenses (CALs). SharePoint Enterprise edition offers an additional capability for Business Intelligence (PowerPivot Workbooks Hosting). In general, all SharePoint sites are licensed using a CAL model – CALs are required for each user accessing a SharePoint site. Let’s take a look at SharePoint 2013 hosting plans offered by PlexHosted.

  • SharePoint 2013 Foundation CALs – you can have an unlimited number of users without paying for CALs, so you pay only for the SharePoint site storage. More details are at PlexHosted SharePoint 2013 Foundation
  • SharePoint 2013 Standard CALs – deliver the core capabilities of SharePoint: sites, communities, content, people and expertise search. More details are at PlexHosted SharePoint 2013 Standard
  • SharePoint 2013 Enterprise CALs – deliver the full capabilities of SharePoint: sites, communities, content, people, video and expertise search, and include business solutions (Access, Excel, PerformancePoint, Visio and InfoPath services). More details are at PlexHosted SharePoint 2013 Enterprise
  • SharePoint 2013 Business Intelligence CALs – deliver the full capabilities of SharePoint and includes Business Intelligence features: Power View, PowerPivot Hosting. More details are at PlexHosted SharePoint 2013 Business Intelligence

The other point to keep in mind is the pricing for SharePoint CALs is the same for multi-tenant and dedicated environments.

SharePoint Hosting Environment Licensing

  • Multi-tenant SharePoint Hosting Environment – With multi-tenant SharePoint hosting you get access to the SharePoint site collection level without having to pay separately for SharePoint/SQL licenses and servers. It`s really great to have a SharePoint site and pay only for the site size and CALs
  • Dedicated SharePoint Hosting Environment – With dedicated SharePoint hosting you get root access to all servers in your SharePoint farm as well as complete access to SharePoint Central Administration. In this case the price for dedicated hosting includes all the necessary licenses and pricing for CALs (for the specified number of users), servers, and SharePoint/SQL licenses. Alternatively you can supply your own Microsoft licenses under Microsoft’s License Mobility plan

As I promised SharePoint 2013 licensing is pretty easy to understanding. So, now you know the difference between all SharePoint editions and environments. Hope my post is helpful and can help you to make a right choice in SharePoint 2013 hosting.
