Due to increasing citizen demands, state and local governments are under pressure to be more open and responsive than ever. Optimized collaboration and productivity are essential to providing more accessible and transparent public services.
Microsoft SharePoint has become a vital enterprise collaboration and social platform for many state and local governments. With agile operations and streamlined budgets, governments cannot afford to have SharePoint deliver less than optimal results and reliability.
Burdened with over-extended IT resources possessing limited SharePoint experience or knowledge to manage "out-of-the-box" or PowerShell solutions, the biggest challenge faced by state and local governments is ensuring that IT services are delivered according to increasing constituent demands.
The operational resources and capital expenditures required to alleviate such burdens can threaten the viability of many state and local governments. Therefore, it is critical to properly plan, architect, and deploy solutions to ensure the platform performs at its peak levels, is well protected, and efficiently managed. AvePoint Public Sector’s products, solutions, and services help state and local governments throughout the country optimize their SharePoint deployments by centralizing personnel management, mitigating security breaches and compliance infractions, attaining a higher level of transparency, ensuring greater accountability to constituents, and reducing operational cost.
There is no "one-size-fits-all" SharePoint management and governance solution for state and local governments. However, our unified management platform which facilitates lifecycle management of on-premises infrastructure – when combined with embracing new technologies such as cloud computing – can help IT operate at optimal efficiency while supporting the complex needs of today’s government.
