Infrastructure and Scaling Strategy

Home » Infrastructure and Scaling Strategy

While setting up a new SharePoint installation is fairly straightforward, properly planning and sizing an installation can be more difficult. After all, you’ve developed a sound business plan to control costs and estimate growth for your company – why shouldn’t there be a plan for the proper scaling of your IT infrastructure?

When we design your SharePoint/Azure/Office365 infrastructure, we will first meet with you to help you design an Infrastructure and Scaling Strategy for 1, 3 and 5-year intervals. This way, you neither run too rich (spending capital and resources needlessly) or too lean (having an infrastructure that is constantly in fire brigade mode).
