Hello,
Today we have great news for you. PlexHosted is pleased to announce that a user password change functionality is now available with our multi-tenant SharePoint 2013 services.

SharePoint 2013 User Password Management

SharePoint user passwords are usually managed from the Active Directory with dedicated SharePoint server or using SharePoint’s Administrative Control Panel provided for multi-tenant service. Previously, multi-tenant users had no ability to change their passwords by themselves and this task has required an administrator to get involved. As a result, extra time was spent for managing passwords every day.

SharePoint 2013 Change Password Feature

Now, if an administrator wants to give users the ability to manage their passwords, a SharePoint “Change Password” feature can be enabled for the site collection.

PlexHosted’s new password change functionality helps to relieve your administrators from this mundane and time consuming task. Users can now change passwords for themselves directly from the SharePoint site without the need to callwrite admin and request a change. What is more, this new functionality allows keeping passwords even more securely than before.

SharePoint 2013 Change Password Web Part

Take a look at how easily users can change passwords for a SharePoint 2013 site with this feature:

They just need to click Change Password.

Hello,
As you probably know, with SharePoint you have two options for installation: SharePoint Foundation 2013 and SharePoint Server 2013. You can read about these two options in my previous posts SharePoint 2013 Foundation edition and SharePoint 2013 Server edition. In this post, I would like to summarize the earlier posts and help you make the right choice between these SharePoint editions.

SharePoint 2013 Editions Short Overview

Let`s take a look at a short SharePoint 2013 editions overview to refresh the key points of these SharePoint editions.

SharePoint 2013 Foundation Overview

Document management and collaboration are the core features with SharePoint 2013 Foundation. With Foundation, end-users can easy create collaboration sites, so it`s a very popular collaborative tool for teams. Users can create a new site based on an existing SharePoint template in just a few seconds without the need for additional code.

SharePoint 2013 Server Overview

The more advanced features for business and team collaboration are included in SharePoint 2013 Server. With SharePoint Server, you can improve business process management, content management and business intelligence for your organization. SharePoint Server is the tool to create, publish and manage content across the intranet, extranet and Internet. Since SharePoint Server integrates easily with Microsoft Office applications, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access and Outlook, users can share content more easily using a familiar environment.

SharePoint 2013 Edition Choice

It is common for many organizations to have a SharePoint environment. In many cases, it`s an easy choice to start with SharePoint 2013 Foundation edition and focus only on collaboration tasks. Once your needs become more advanced, you can upgrade SharePoint Foundation to one of the SharePoint Server options. Our company, PlexHosted, offers free migration to PlexHosted SharePoint services as well as upgrade in a SharePoint environment at any time you need it.

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.
PlexHosted can provide you with a starting point for your successful intranet. From the planning stage, to SharePoint implementation and customization – this is something PlexHosted can help you with.

Why do we need SharePoint hosting? How we can use SharePoint 2013 in our company to solve business problems? What problems could be resolved by using a SharePoint platform? Numerous articles, blog posts, and the popularity of queries over the Internet show the importance of these questions for many successful companies. Let’s try to bring light on some of these questions in this blog post.

SharePoint hosting 2013. How can we use SharePoint 2013 for business.

Every company or organization have staff who usually work with a number of business documents using office applications as well as communicate with other departments. And usually they run into a variety of difficulties such as:

  • Documents could be lost or confidentiality could be compromised.
  • Employees spend a lot of time on search and sorting papers. There is wasted time and money on making duplicate copies.
  • The document approval process needs to be managed properly.
  • Normally employees collaborate and communicate with each other and other departments to request the necessary documents by walking from office to office across the building, or search numerous email messages.

All these problems can be described by a famous quote of Robert Townsend “All organizations are at least 50 percent waste – waste people, waste effort, waste space, and waste time”.

Taking a look at the difficulties in the work described above, I would answer that a solution is to use a unified system which will store all the necessary content and documents in a single source, organize the work for all your departments, and provide mobility. SharePoint 2013 certainly is such unified system with a lot of benefits.

Benefits of SharePoint hosting services:

  • SharePoint site – control the flow of documents in your company, keep them in a single SharePoint storage place, and eliminate the duplication of documents;
  • SharePoint search – insure security and easy retrieval of documents after single sign in;
  • SharePoint approval process – simplify the process of document approval; get the opportunity for managers to approve documents regardless of the time of day and geographic location.

Benefits of SharePoint hosting services for team work:

  • SharePoint project management – create a separate project area for each new project where the project team will be able to store all project materials;
  • SharePoint permissions – define the permissions of users, so only members of the project team can view information about the project and therefore insure project security;
  • SharePoint discussions – place a SharePoint Discussion Board on the project’s main page where team members will be able to discuss problems, solutions and new ideas in one visible place.

Benefits of SharePoint hosting services in business process automation:

  • detailed and understandable business process plan for employees;
  • transparency of business processes: the employee team can determine all steps of the business processes and how they are engaged in their creation;
  • more efficient use of time;
  • monitor project goals on the basis of reports;
  • business processes analytics can provide SharePoint reports to determine when projects are put on hold, document the issues, and aid in addressing the associated road blocks.

As you can see the SharePoint hosting service could make your life easier and improve your company’s business. Using SharePoint 2013 social features you can easily create forums and communities based on your employees’ job roles. I`m sure that your employees are not IT guys, but they are familiar with Microsoft office software. As such you should keep in mind that the great SharePoint 2013 advantage is integration with Microsoft office applications and its simplicity.

SharePoint hosting service will help you reduce operating costs and move to a new level of collaboration by sharing documents. Using SharePoint 2013 improves efficiency of workflows and employee performance. Do not waste time on tasks that can be done faster and more efficiently by using SharePoint 2013. “If you don’t do it excellently, don’t do it at all. Because if it’s not excellent, it won’t be profitable or fun, and if you’re not in business for fun or profit, what the hell are you doing there?” (Robert Townsend).

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.

When you access SharePoint 2013 site for the first time you will see the out-of-the-box SharePoint design without any other references to your company. Probably you can get the custom site URL and a title at the SharePoint site, but most hosting providers offer this as paid option (please note that with PlexHosted you can get it for free!), but you need to know that this look and feel has been designed by Microsoft for the common uses. Now you can decide for yourself how you want to use this site and whether you want SharePoint 2013 site leave “as is” or to build your own environment to enrich your company’s identity.

SharePoint 2013 Branding
