Consulting on the Integration of Cloud Services
Springhouse specializes in Microsoft cloud-solution integrations. We help our clients implement and then utilize Microsoft Office 365, SharePoint, and Azure. Specifically, our technical team members are experts in licensing, setup, architecture, migration, installation, integration, support, and training.
Microsoft Office 365 Integration
Springhouse is a certified Microsoft Office 365 partner. More importantly, we have the experience to ensure a smooth transition to the cloud.
With an Office 365 subscription, your organization can decommission its on-premise Exchange Server and adopt cloud-based services with little financial overhead. Plus, you can take advantage of enhanced Microsoft Office 365 desktop applications, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. In addition, you will have access to tools like online conferencing, instant messaging, and simple file-sharing, in one comprehensive package.
During a feature-benefit presentation, Springhouse will map your business and functional requirements to the appropriate Office 365 subscription plan. We formulate migration plans, craft custom cloud-based solution strategies, support change management, mentor successful transitions, and train end-users.
Microsoft SharePoint Integration
Years ago, Microsoft SharePoint was only associated with document management. Today, organizations strategically tap into the power of SharePoint as a business platform. Springhouse can assist you with your SharePoint initiatives from conceptualization through fulfillment, for both the online and on-premise versions.
Our SharePoint consulting services include, but are not limited to:
- Deployment Planning Services (DPS)
- Taxonomy and Site Hierarchy Design
- Content and Site Migration
- Governance Planning
Microsoft Azure Integration
What is Microsoft Azure? Azure is a hybrid cloud service designed to help deploy business solutions, such as web apps, data storage, or analytics, from start to finish. It offers a multitude of options for software, platform, and infrastructure services while helping businesses save costs associated with technology management and software upgrades.
By turning to Springhouse to support your transition to Microsoft Azure and its cloud solutions, you can keep your competitive edge without expanding your budget. Springhouse’s technical trainers and consultants can help you maximize Azure. We make it possible for your organization to benefit from current technologies in a cost-effective manner, paying only for what you use when you use it.
Consulting on the Management of Projects
Springhouse is a full-service provider of project management solutions. First, we can lead the management of technology integration projects as consultants, if our clients need that type of leadership. Second, we mentor your project managers as they act upon a project plan. Finally, our Project Management Professionals (PMP) train other individuals to become certified PMPs.
Springhouse offers a turnkey solution – PMOptimized – that provides clients the ability to get up and running with Project Online quickly based on a predetermined cost structure. With PMOptimized, organizations can implement enterprise-level project management for less than a quarter of what it once cost to deploy Microsoft Project Server on premise.
Enterprise Project Management (EPM)
Enterprise Project Management (EPM) is a combination of Springhouse consulting and training services that can be strategized and customized to meet your organization’s needs. We go beyond simply installing Microsoft Project Server and Project Online. Our certified project management instructors and senior solutions specialists help organizations improve their practice of task, project, program, and portfolio management. We partner with organizations during their EPM initiatives and identify improvement opportunities. Springhouse brings to the table a commitment to quality, collaboration, knowledge sharing, and support. Plus, we specialize in analysis, customization, and training.
Project Portfolio Analysis
Springhouse will work with your organization to make sure you are not only doing projects right but also doing the right projects. As part of this effort, we construct a framework to help you optimize your portfolio against financial, strategic, and risk evaluation criteria. Coupling this framework with a portfolio management strategy will reduce the frustrations your organization faces caused by a lack of human resources or capital.
