Microsoft Office 365 and SharePoint
Access Sciences’ Pertempo™ for SharePoint solution focuses on the basics: a requirements-based design and information architecture that models your business processes and uses your organization’s terminology. We involve your stakeholders at every step in the requirements development and design process, so that there are no surprises. The result is a solution that is fit-for-purpose for your organization.
Access Sciences does not sell a SharePoint application. Our Pertempo™ for SharePoint solution is based on native SharePoint features and functions and rarely requires any additional code (and it those rare cases, very little code). This results in a sustainable solution that doesn’t require costly software purchases, ongoing maintenance costs, and one that doesn’t break any time SharePoint is upgraded.
What is the best option for your organization – SharePoint Online, SharePoint on-prem, or a hybrid solution?
Access Sciences examines each organization’s unique requirements and identifies the SharePoint implementation model that best suits the organization’s needs. Factors to be considered when selecting the implementation model:
- Total cost
- Functional requirements/product features
- Compliance standards
- Infrastructure requirements
- Customization options
- Storage needs
- Business continuity
- Information security
- Organization size and complexity
Access Sciences recommends that every organization invests in good BI strategy and systems. Here are some of the main reasons for investing in a BI solution

We are often brought in to “fix” a SharePoint implementation that isn’t meeting an organization’s needs. Invariably, this results from the lack of a requirements-based design and information architecture. Without some control at the outset, site “sprawl” and unfindable content are the result. We’ve learned that governance can be right-sized and only as rigorous as needed. One size does not have to fit all.
The effort, and cost, to retrofit a poorly executed SharePoint implementation is typically much higher than to recreate the implementation based on a requirements-based design and information architecture and then migrate existing content to the new implementation.
No, the underlying principles of a requirements-based design and information architecture are applicable to any content management platform.
