Innovative-e, Inc., a business consulting and technology services company specializing in SharePoint, announces today a new partnership with CloudShare, a leading provider of cloud computing services, for development and testing of SharePoint applications. As a CloudShare Premier SharePoint Partner, Innovative-e, helps CloudShare subscribers add business functionality to their cloud-based SharePoint environments.
CloudShare enables IT enterprises to develop and test business applications in the cloud, instead of on traditional on-premise infrastructure. There is no longer a need to buy hardware, maintain infrastructure or configure and recode software. As a CloudShare Premier SharePoint Partner, Innovative-e helps CloudShare subscribers make the most of their virtual environments by leveraging SharePoint and Microsoft Project to organize and manage project management data. Innovative-e originally teamed up with CloudShare on a Microsoft sponsored initiative to create a scenario-based resource management solution called “Project for the Masses” (PFTM). The PFTM configuration is now available in one click via the CloudShare Solution Showcase.
To kick off the partnership, Innovative-e and CloudShare are hosting a free SharePoint webinar titled,“5 Steps to Effective SharePoint Adoption & Training.” The webinar will take place online at 10-11 am. PST on Friday November 18, 2011. Dux Raymond Sy, managing partner for Innovative-e, and Chris Riley, CloudShare product manager and SharePoint evangelist, will host the webinar. The webinar will provide practical guidance on how to better facilitate effective SharePoint adoption and end user training. As was uncovered in recent research conducted by Innovative-e, treating SharePoint user adoption and training as an afterthought is one of the “5 Deadly Sins of SharePoint in the Enterprise.” In addition, attendees will also learn how to:
- Engage the business to identify SharePoint-based business solutions;
- Design and develop relevant SharePoint training programs;
- Quantify and measure the effectiveness of training programs;
- Provide reliable SharePoint support to the business;
- Deliver continuous SharePoint learning initiatives to the business.
