With Microsoft discontinuing support for SharePoint 2010, enterprises are looking for a replacement.
One option is to migrate to SharePoint Online.
For those who are unfamiliar, here are five steps you can take to ensure your set up goes smoothly.
Step 1: Define your SharePoint usage
In order to make sure you successfully set up SharePoint, you need to start by defining how, what and why SharePoint will be used for your enterprise. This is because SharePoint can become a digital filing cabinet if not maintained properly.
Step 2: SharePoint can lead you to other services
Now that SharePoint is available through Office 365, it allows your enterprise to access other apps and platforms at the same time.
Step 3: SharePoint: project management tool
SharePoint offers users templates for project management, which allow them the ability to design intranet pages for scheduling, activities, and project-specific documents.
Step 4: Make sure to preserve intranets when migrating SharePoint
Be cautious when you’re migrating to SharePoint Online to keep all of your content and site structures intact. This can come with some compatibility issues since there have been significant changes from earlier versions of SharePoint.
Step 5: Ongoing education
Continuing education should be a part of any SharePoint implementation. There is often a higher adoption rate for companies that have ongoing trainings (both online and in-person) for their employees rather than just holding a one-day training. Some users struggle to remember how to use a platform with just a single training.
