SharePoint 2013 offers significant improvements over SharePoint 2010 in enterprise content management, particularly with respect to managing content in large-scale deployments. Some of the traditional challenges with tagging and locating content have been addressed through Enterprise Managed Metadata, location-based metadata defaults, unique document IDs, and content ratings.
SharePoint not only offers a cost-effective way to organize, store, and manage content, but also allows end-users to update content and functionality without the involvement of IT. For regulated material, SharePoint also accommodates stringent workflows and digital signatures to manage content lifecycle and approval processes. Dynamic, role-based security permissions help ensure that only those with the appropriate access can download sensitive materials, making it safe to upload any content to the SharePoint site.
To ensure that all of this content can be found, we implement robust information architecture and visual, social, and faceted search capabilities that make it easy for any user to find what they are looking for. We know first-hand how this works, because we don’t just implement SharePoint for our clients. We use it ourselves, every day, for storing and sharing our own content, so we understand what goes into making a SharePoint content management solution successful for end-users. We consider our own experiences in every step of the project, so our solution doesn’t just function as intended; it transforms the way your employees work together.
