FIS worked with the County to provide an overall information architecture strategy for implementing their SharePoint Enterprise Portal Site. The County has 16,000 employees and 20 terabytes of data. FIS designed a customized user experience and had a 3rd party test the user interface for usability. FIS also worked with the county stakeholders and management to develop a formal governance and retention policies for their content. FIS also developed a site hierarchy structure.
FIS, then architected a solution to implement the SharePoint site for the County to include the new information architecture and taxonomy. FIS worked with the county to implement a communication plan to inform employees of the new Enterprise Portal. After implementation FIS provided various training sessions to include train the trainer, administrative training, user training, and online training.
Once the site was deployed we worked with the county to identify areas where we could automate workflows and integrate the portal with existing systems. FIS then developed a number of workflow automation solutions to improve processes within various departments. FIS also integrated a number of applications with SharePoint to include employee “self-service” services, virtual application automation, and a number of other systems.
FIS built the initial County enterprise Portal in SharePoint 2007 and upgraded the site to SharePoint 2010. FIS is in the final phase of migrating the site to SharePoint 2013 with expected deliver of January 2015. FIS is also currently working with the County to automate a number of manual processes using Nintex Forms and Workflows for SharePoint.
Finally, FIS has been working with the County to implement a cloud based SaaS solution for other Municipalities to allow the County to offer smaller municipalities the option to use their enterprise portal and all the services that have been integrated. FIS has completed a proof of concept of the cloud solution and integrated it with Office 365 Exchange, Lync, and OneDrive.
