By All Posts, Cloud, Managed Services, Office 365, Productivity, SharePoint, Teams

In this blog post, I wanted to walk you, a hopefully potential customer, through a rough idea of how my team delivers a project.

Why You Should Use Azure DevOps For Your Next Application

By Application Development, Azure, DevOps

DevOps has a different meaning to everyone, but most would agree, at its core, that it is a set of practices to deliver a higher quality product. Recently, one of our clients modernized a full suite of their applications to better manage their long-term needs. Among the expected technical challenges of updating a handful of projects in parallel came the desire to minimize downtime between projects. It became apparent that effective collaboration would be a key component to creating a smooth handoff from analysis/design to development/QA and finally to deployment/maintenance. For our use, Azure DevOps served as a team-wide collaboration tool used in all project iterations to equip our team for success.

By All Posts, Modern Workplace, Office 365, Productivity, SharePoint, Teams

Customizations in SharePoint are always an interesting topic. Many clients remember the days of legacy SharePoint on-prem (2007, 2010,2013), where it was almost impossible to do anything in SharePoint without customizations. Some clients have started with SharePoint Online (MS 365) but have a desire to have customizations to provide a truly unique solution to their organization. If you ask Imaginet, “Should we customize in SharePoint Online,” our answer is generally “no.”
