Content Management / Portal / Collaboration

SharePoint is now the most commonly leveraged technology in the world for organizations to store and manage Content, provide a common collaboration and workflow management platform, act as a “portal” provider, as well as for the many other capabilities from Microsoft’s “Swiss army knife of software”.

Aria’s principle has close to 10 years of experience and training with SharePoint and related technologies and has a very solid knowledge of many of the large collection of 3rd party software available in the market to extend and manage the base SharePoint platform and provide the capabilities that can make SharePoint an outstanding solution. In fact, Aria’s principle was one of the first 2 people in Canada to lead the deployment of an enterprise-scale production instance of SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) !
