2e2, the provider of IT services, has announced that it has been certified by Microsoft to provide SharePoint Deployment Planning Services (SDPS) to its customers.
2e2’s SDPS accreditation means that it can help its customers to appreciate the benefits of this solution, running workshops on behalf of Microsoft to show users best practice on how they can maximise the collaborative technology to get the most from their staff and business. In addition to this, 2e2 can also assist with deployment if required.
Businesses must be licensed with Microsoft in order to be considered to be a SDPS partner. Now certified, 2e2 will deliver pre-packaged SDPS engagements to Microsoft customers. These will take between one to 15 days depending upon the value of the enterprise agreement between Microsoft and the user.
“Being certified to partner with Microsoft for its SDPS solution strengthens our position as we increase our value offering in the SharePoint technology space,” said Mark Matthews, Microsoft Practice Manager, 2e2. “The way that the programme has been designed means that we get the opportunity to work with Microsoft customers in a variety of ways using the different packages available, always with the overall goal of helping their business run more effectively and efficiently through collaboration.”
Microsoft said: ““As organizations of all sizes around the world deploy Microsoft® Office SharePoint Server, they are engaging with trusted partners to assist with the planning of this critical IT responsibility. SharePoint Deployment Planning Services (SDPS) is designed to help organizations plan an effective deployment of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server by partnering them with a qualified Microsoft SDPS provider and offering a broad range of planning tools and services that help optimize the effectiveness of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server’s core capabilities, lower the cost of deployment, and improve organizational productivity.
