Managing SharePoint Just Got Easier

By Doug Barney

SharePoint may be the richest collaboration tool out there feature-wise, but that is also the problem. It is no fun to set up or manage.

IT has its hands full keeping tabs on all the on-premises SharePoint apps launched by this group or that, and it can be almost as tough in the cloud – unless that cloud is managed.

That is the thinking behind TriCore Solutions’ new SharePoint Managed Application Services.

While many users adopt easy and free collaboration tools like DropBox and Google Apps, Microsoft shops are seeing a huge uptick in SharePoint.

“We are seeing explosive growth in SharePoint sites, however managing a SharePoint environment is more complex than ever before and many companies don’t have the experience and skill set to take advantage of the new features offered with upgrades and new implementations,” said Jeff Johnson, Vice President, Professional Services for TriCore Solutions. “TriCore brings more than 20 years of experience in SharePoint application services, Microsoft business intelligence, business requirements analysis, full application and system implementation as well as end-to-end managed infrastructure services.”

The fact that TriCore has two decades in the SharePoint market shows just how long the platform has been around. And when it first arrived, it was more of a document management system, and Microsoft was arguing that Exchange, with its public folders and discussion threads, was the main collaboration tool. Oh, and back then collaboration tools were called Groupware.

Later, Microsoft bought Groove Networks, and there was more confusion about Microsoft’s collaboration strategy, but in more recent years the entire push has been behind SharePoint and now it has the market share as result.

So how can the new TriCore services help IT and partners? Well, the company says it offers: “Full SharePoint Application Functional Support;  SharePoint Database Support including managing your database schema, database tuning, and application support with lifecycle management; SharePoint Business Intelligence Consulting Services delivered with deep understanding of technology for implementations, upgrades, customizations and business process expertise. It also boasts Hosted Managed Infrastructure, including Ccoud that is highly available, scalable, and employs the latest in security and reliability. This includes hardware, networking, OS, storage, backups, and security with industry leading, customer-centric SLAs, built-in disaster recovery, and continuous operational improvements to guarantee optimum service delivery for your business. Other features include: Migration Support to SharePoint 2013 – from SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010; and  TriCore Trusted Support - 24x7x365 support with complete transparency at all levels.”
