Our 5 key focus areas that are key to a successful SharePoint implementation:

  • Infrastructure

    A good infrastructure properly sized and configured is a foundation of a successful implementation. The right farm topology has to be put in place considering the project requirements. Different environments for integration testing, quality, pre-production and production are as well mandatory for a delivery that follows the best practices, processes and methodologies.

  • Solutions

    The setup of a solution that meets business requirement, giving priority to OOB functionalities and in harmony with the technology been used is another pillar of success.

  • Customizations

    Customizations are often required to meet client needs but they should be implemented only when it’s not possible to achieve the same with OOB functionalities and they must be implemented considering maintainability, performances and all the SharePoint peculiarities.

  • Security

    A right security model must be put in place considering the maintainability, performances and of course the requirements.

  • Troubleshooting

    In every project comes the time of troubleshooting. Experienced SharePoint teams from PureQuad can identify issues and solve them in very short time.

Our past or current engagements for several multinational clients are covering different types of SharePoint projects:

  • Migrations

  • Assessments

  • Enterprise Social

  • Site Provisioning

  • Custom Solution development

  • Third party solution analysis

  • Enterprise Search

  • OOB configuration

Key roles/profiles that are needed within a SharePoint or Java development project:

  • Business Analyst

    A fundamental role to define the client needs and expectations (the business requirements, Functional and non-functional requirements, Data models, etc.

  • UX Expert

    We believe in the importance of the User eXperience. UX can really make the difference when it comes to user adoption.

  • Project Manager

    This role is fundamental for managing all project phases (from initiation and up to closure), managing the risks, managing the stakeholders and ensuring the delivery is done to the expected level of quality in time and budget.

  • Solution Architect

    His role is to define the right architecture for the solution that will meet business requirements.

  • Technical Lead

    His role is to lead the developer’s team, assigning tasks, providing guidance and delivering the final solution.

  • Developer

    A good team of developers “Regional” or “Off-shore” that can scale depending on the project needs is another mandatory resource for a project.

  • Testing Team

    A testing team is important as well, to provide a validation/ extensive test of all the functionalities provided as part of the solution (More details in the QA section of services).

SharePoint Add-ins - JavaScript

It is more and more visible that Microsoft is pushing even further into the JavaScript world in the upcoming SharePoint Frameworks. The web parts / app parts / add-ins as IFrame component containers are gone and replaced by inline JavaScript extensions that are dynamically included in the page. These JavaScript extensions can be deployed either to Office 365 or loaded from an external CDN.

The SharePoint Framework leverages 100% JavaScript code and tools such as TypeScript, Node.JS, React, JSON, and Gulp for building customizations. Unlike the current Add-in model, the code is included directly into a page with none of the older IFrame based container frameworks that older versions of SharePoint used.

For this reason PureQuad has built a team with extensive experience with JavaScript frameworks such as Knockout JS, Angular, React, HTML, CSS styling, MVVM modular design and working with JavaScript Object Model (JSOM), REST, etc.
