Managing a Multi-faceted Intranet + Global Extranets
How Aciron does it
A prominent global law firm with over 600 lawyers in 15 offices utilized Microsoft SharePoint across the organization for its various business needs. However, the firm was experiencing critical problems with its SharePoint infrastructure. For example, its user profile synchronization, search, and Shared Services Provider were not operating correctly.
To start, although the firm was engaged with another Microsoft SharePoint consulting vendor, the firm sought to move forward with a different consulting expert. In other words, they were looking for a consultant that could provide the needed support and efficient consulting. In addition, the firm wanted to establish a strong relationship with the vendor.
