Microsoft Office SharePoint 2013 is a bouquet of versatile web-based applications that can be used for a variety of functions — most popularly collaboration and document management. It is used to build and host enterprise-level internet and intranet sites and web applications.

SharePoint’s Array of Tools

  • SharePoint Online — Built on a cloud platform, this service provides all the benefits of SharePoint without occupying on-site IT equipment. It stores all data on cloud computing services allowing for a completely wireless setup.
  • SharePoint Foundation — The building blocks of the SharePoint universe, Foundation is an on-site IT application that is free to use and includes all of SharePoint’s powerful functions in the information and data processing fields including the amalgamation of webpage content, document data, listing services and calendar sync.
  • SharePoint Server — A more comprehensive on-site program Server not only offers all of Foundation’s tools, but also enhances them with the inclusion of tools such as Enterprise Content Management, search tools, newsfeeds, private websites and much more.
  • SharePoint Designer 2013 — Another free-to-use tool, this program is designed to streamline workflow through the use of Business Connectivity Services.
  • OneDrive for Business Folder Sync — As the name suggests, this PC-based program allows for SharePoint data to be saved and accessed offline.

SharePoint’s scalable, secure environment was designed for team collaboration, facilitating team efforts with individuals based around the world. Password protected SharePoint sites allow users to collaborate on tasks, projects, and documents. SharePoint’s Web Parts provides functionality along with Microsoft ASP.NET-based components.

Site managers can coordinate site content and user activity and customize Web Parts to suit various business requirements. SharePoint makes it easy for administrators to design, deploy, and administer their sites.

Case Study – Rubicon Offshore International, Singapore
Rubicon Offshore International is an offshore oilfield service company whose core activity is the development and production of small oilfields in the Australia-Asia region.

Extentia has collaborated with Rubicon to develop a vessel and asset management system, based on SharePoint technology.

Steve Mathews (Field Manager, Rubicon) describes the company’s business challenge: “We had three vessels in three different locations. We needed to not only track inventory, but also the individual tasks assigned. The reports needed to be generated and made available to company HQ, all within a pre-determined time frame.”

However, Extentia had the solution. Umeed Kothavala (Director, Extentia) explains: “After observing Rubicon’s business challenge, we recognized that SharePoint was the ideal platform to address the asset management system. We used WSS 3.0, .NET and SQL Reporting Services to connect the vessels with company HQ via VSCAT link. The technology also made it possible to store data on production reports, vessel status, inventories and head count.”

“Extentia has been really supportive and professional in the development. Right from the requisitions to the development stage, they have done an excellent job and are very responsive and easy to work with. I look forward to working on future projects with the team.”
