United Way Greater Toronto (UWGT) was still using SharePoint 2003 to access shared workspaces, information stores and document libraries. The system was antiquated, had poor security features, was no longer able to meet increased demands and it was difficult to maintain. Also, the platform was not delivering the operational experience the end-user had come to expect from the brand. UWGT needed to modernize its business collaboration and document management platform.
Migrating to SharePoint On-Line with cloud data protection
CrucialLogics, in close partnership with UWGT, designed the foundation that was needed to build a standardized intranet platform with cloud data protection, using SharePoint On-Line (SPO). This would bring all department sites, team sites and content stores together on one secure platform.
CrucialLogics, in collaboration with the UWGT IT CrucialLogics also supplied hands-on training for two UWGT superusers to carry the program goals forward. Additionally, they donated time in goodwill to governance, advisory input and feedback on change management programs and oversight on the project.
UWGT’s data is secure and the user experience is improved
CrucialLogics’ experienced team, with their deep technical
skillsets, worked with the management of UWGT to design
a well-defined and well-planned solution. CrucialLogics
implemented the Cloud Data Protection Workload for Office
365 in tandem with Hybrid Cloud Identity Workload. The
final platform delivered on all the project goals, including:
• Implementation of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for 252 users
• Single Sign-on (SSO) for all Microsoft apps
• Self-service password reset
• Azure Active Directory in the Cloud (AADC)
• Complete cloud data protection
The project was a great success. It ensured that all UWGT’s data was secure and that their end-users were satisfied with the updated platform.
“ CrucialLogics definitely has the technical expertise. But more importantly, they want to build a longterm relationship where both sides prosper.”
