Core Announces their SharePoint Deployment Planning Services (SDPS) Program Offering. 

London, UK, 20 May 2008 - Core, a leading provider of Microsoft SharePoint solutions and services, today announced the launch of their SharePoint Deployment Planning Services Program. Microsoft's SDPS program launched on the 19th of May and Core is one of just a handful of SDPS certified partners who can deliver the SDPS services.

Microsoft’s SharePoint Deployment Planning Services (SDPS) is designed to help an organisation plan an effective deployment of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. SDPS includes a broad range of planning tools and services that help optimise the effectiveness of the Office SharePoint Server core capabilities, help lower the cost of deployment, and help improve the productivity of an organisation.

As a Microsoft SDPS Certified provider, Core will share their best practices, analyse an organisational environment and provide tools and services that can help them plan their Office SharePoint Server Implementation. The number of engagement days available for organisations is determined by their Microsoft Software Assurance coverage. The organisation can exchange their Software Assurance Benefits (SDPS, DDPS and Training Vouchers) for Core SharePoint Consultancy Days.

"This is an excellent opportunity for organisations to pilot SharePoint for free using their existing Software Assurance Benefits", said Conor Callanan, Managing Director, Core.

Core can deliver the SDPS program in the following areas; Collaboration, Portals, Enterprise Search, Enterprise and Web Content Management, Business Process Management (Workflow) and Business Intelligence.

SDPS Program Benefits:

  •  SDPS enables your organisation to get more value out of something that is already a benefit from your software assurance investment
  • SDPS gives you the answers to the “if”, “where”, and “how” to deploy SharePoint directly from a SharePoint expert with experience and expertise
  • SDPS offers an engagement that is customised to your organisation’s needs (collaboration, ECM, Workflow or Enterprise Search)
  • SDPS offers a piece of mind by ensuring that your deployment plan will be created by a SDPS Certified and Microsoft Gold Certified partner
