Free webinar tomorrow (Thursday) June 16th 4-5pm EDT This month Community IT Innovators is comparing alternatives to SharePoint for online cloud file sharing solutions for nonprofits. Have you wondered what the differences were between Box and Dropbox? What about Google Drive? What would work best for your organization? Johanny Torrico and Steve Longenecker will walk through what to expect from these systems, how to frame the decision for your organization, and whether you would benefit from SharePoint, one of the alternatives, or sticking with an on-premise file server. Join us from 4-5pm EDT June 16th!

This month, we shift our focus to alternative document management platforms, such as Dropbox, which will be the primary focus of our June 16th Webinar: Alternatives to SharePoint.

Johanny Torrico and Steve Longenecker will take you through different business cases where SharePoint would not be a time, cost, or cultural fit for an organization. As a solution agnostic IT support firm, Community IT has a wealth of experience in implementing Dropbox, Box, Google Drive and other cloud-based document management solutions. Johanny and Steve will compare and contrast what these different solutions do, how they can work for users, and how to frame the decision for your organization.

SharePoint can deliver incredible value, but is also a major undertaking. In other words, there is significant return, but also a substantial investment required. This quarter we are examining how to prepare for a SharePoint implementation, how to create the information architecture to migrate your documents to SharePoint, and comparing file storage and management cloud solutions for nonprofits.

If you missed our free webinar this month, you can catch up on the slides and recording here. Our SharePoint process has come to feel like an un-sales process – we gather the stakeholders, executives, and IT personnel together and spell out for them everything that can go wrong. If they are still interested and invested in the business benefits after hearing the negatives, well then we know we can move forward as a team.

We’ve been focused the past few months on SharePoint and other cloud file server solutions. With all the questions coming in, Steve Longenecker and Johanny Torrico thought it was an ideal time to update a series of FAQ blog posts they did about SharePoint a few years back.

With all up-to-date information these two posts answer such perennial questions as

what system prerequisites you need
what file servers we recommend and why
how much storage you get
what metadata is
whether you can ditch your server after moving to the cloud
and more!

Many organizations are looking to SharePoint to provide easier access to documents, more robust collaboration and sharing capabilities, versioning, and dynamic records management. These are all features that can benefit most organizations, and are beyond the capacity of the traditional file server. But to begin to build a new Information Architecture for SharePoint, you must really understand your content. What files does your organization generate? Our methodology will help you draw up an outline of the content types in your organization.
