CDA SharePoint Online Upgrade

DSoft Technology assisted the Colorado Department of Agriculture (CDA) to modernize from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint Online.

DSoft Technology created an external SharePoint instance using SharePoint Online (part of Microsoft Office 365) that will be used to interact with external entities. Custom branding (master page, css, images) was applied to mimic the look and feel of the CDA public facing website. In addition to this, DSoft Technology implemented in SP best practices (naming conventions, provisioning rules, site hierarch) for creating specific AD & SP groups to control permission levels on the SP site. DSoft Technology reviewed the service accounts used and made changes were needed. The project included configuring BCS and creating External Content Types to retrieve data from the CDA database.

DSoft Technology implemented the basis for a central Taxonomy, created Groups and Terms and Content Types and deployed these features to CDA's production server. The work also included designing and building a pilot workflow using SP Designer to demonstrate and educating power users on how to create moderate to complex workflows in SP. DSoft Technology also installed and configured Knowledge Lake (KL) Imaging for SharePoint in the Dev, QA and Production environments.
