Portals & Content Management

Supra ITS provides Portal services as Software as a service (SaaS) or “on-demand software” as a software delivery model in which software and associated data are centrally hosted on the cloud.

Supra ITS considers Microsoft SharePoint to be a key Portal component because it is Microsoft’s flagship platform that serves customers from both a business strategic and from a technical perspective.

Strategic Reasons

  • SharePoint is a horizontal platform, offering much more than a WCMS, offering:
    • Collaboration
    • Enterprise Content Management, including Records Management
    • Business Process Management
    • Business Intelligence
    • Enterprise Search
  • Utilizing the platform for multiple purposes will reduce the overall Cost of Ownership – no need to implement multiple products from multiple vendors. 
  • SharePoint is integrated to the other productivity tools you use today including Microsoft Office and Communications Server
  • Your training time will be reduced as SharePoint presents a common user interface that users are used to – the Ribbon
  • Customers can focus their internal skill building on one platform – a platform with a large resource pool available for hire or contract
  • SharePoint’s growth has been exponential – Microsoft has claimed more than 50% of corporations have evaluated SharePoint  (Gartner)
  • SharePoint is supported by an ever-growing community of system integrators – more options for customers

Technical Reasons

  • SharePoint includes  out-of-the-box support for a fair amount of customers’ requirements
  • SharePoint allows for a fully integrated intranet, extranet and internet environment 
  • SharePoint offers deep integration with Microsoft Office, in particular Outlook
  • SharePoint offers very familiar Office-like UI, resulting in higher adoptability rates
  • SharePoint offers an impressive repertory of options for integrating with LOB systems
  • SharePoint integrates seamlessly with Microsoft’s Unified Communications products
