Sjoerd Alkema, head of professional services & solutions at Xillio, explained how to make the implementation of SharePoint a success in the KMWorld’s webinar.

According to Alkema, “The path to lean and agile content is coupled with numerous intricacies that organizations are encountering.

These intricacies include:

  • How to facilitate the changing content service requirements through the business?
  • Is it important to change content architecture?
  • Is it necessary to store all the content?
  • Which content is valuable and which not?
  • Should the legacy systems be replaced?
  • Is it required to shift all content to SharePoint? Or archive as well? Separate system?
  • How do I allow Digital Transformation with all these different systems?

As per Alkema, these are the important guidelines one must follow:

Use content analysis to determine migration strategy - it will give more than just that;

  • Picture it as an opportunity to improve! Not just necessary evil;
  • Don’t just do a lift and shift, a big risk for user adoption;
  • Show the impact of business rules to refine iteratively with the client;
  • Check the performance in the first phase as input for your migration planning;
  • Create the business rules generically first and deep dive per company entity for specifics;
  • Consider integration to strategically enable migrations of large legacy systems;
  • Involve users from the very start of the process and in every step of the way;
