  • Microsoft SharePoint Server
  • Microsoft System Center

Key Challenges

  • Health check on existing SharePoint web and application environment
  • Proactive monitoring of SharePoint infrastructure
  • Flexible helpdesk support


Chess Digital conducted an audit of the SharePoint environment over two working days before documenting the findings and producing an organisation specific set of recommendations. 

Following discussions with the client and acceptance of the recommendations, these were passed to the Chess Digital's infrastructure team for implementation along with the necessary technical and network/security configurations for the establishment of the proactive monitoring service by use of Microsoft’s System Center Operations Manager.

In addition to the proactive monitoring service, Stewart Milne Group IT team have also opted to use Chess Digital's helpdesk for on-going technical and “how to do” queries that arise.
