Alaska SharePoint Development

NorthWest Data Solutions has been working with SharePoint in Alaska since 2003. Our Alaska developers have plenty experience developing or customizing SharePoint applications. NWDS worked with Microsoft developers as they went from version 1 to version 2. We were instrumental in testing and providing feedback on the document versioning business processes.

SharePoint is a powerful content management system. Your organization can allow teams to manage their own content and collaboration methodologies.

Taxonomy Development and Consulting

For many Alaska organizations, designing SharePoint taxonomy strategy addressing portal/site organization and navigation as well as an overall information technology architecture specifying how content will be categorized, classified and tagged is considered too much work.

Improve Collaboration

In the current business environment, you may have company personnel and partners scattered in geographically distant locations. Collaborating teams often work in different locations and time zones. It's an ongoing battle to stay efficient and productive. Collaboration infrastructure is a viable alternative.

Use SharePoint Server for:

  • Content Management
    Ensure information remains accessible, traceable, controlled, and easy to use.
  • Communication
    Integrate electronic communications such as email, instant messaging, and voicemail in workflows tied to particular job functions.
  • Search Your Data
    Enable workers to discover needed information in real-time and eliminate the need to re-create existing resources.
  • Workflow Automation
    Automate processes that accelerate the completion of tasks, and provide selective access to information and resources needed to complete tasks.
  • Calendaring and Scheduling
    Eliminate back-and-forth processes of manually identifying participants and available resources.

Manage Regulatory Compliance using a SharePoint Solution

Regulatory non-compliance can cripple your business. Managing regulatory compliance issues can be challenging for organizations of all size.

NWDS' Anchorage, Alaska SharePoint Consulting Team configures Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) to give your company capabilities to easily meet some of the most current and difficult regulations including:

  • Sarbanes-Oxley Act - defines records retention and corporate governance
  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) - defines behaviors for healthcare providers
  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act in the United States & Data Protection Act in the UK - demands control of personal information

Increase Security

Virtually every company in Alaska today manages an incredible amount of data originating from both inside and outside the organization.

Use SharePoint Services to:

  • Flexible, easy-to-configure security features – Includes global administration of security permissions, as well as worker’s ability to share personal documents and resources on a restricted-access basis.
  • Portals – A single platform with built-in security to integrate systems, applications, resources, and workflows according to logical work descriptions, location of workers, and group permissions.
  • Integration – Make applications and information resources accessible and secure across system boundaries and computing platforms. Allow workers to access and share information according to work processes rather than code or file type.
