The Challenge: Governance of the Hybrid SharePoint environment
EY has a large server infrastructure with 924 servers distributed on several continents with some of the farms deployed and managed locally in different countries. A team of external experts from Microsoft Services and internal experts in different countries currently monitor and manage this infrastructure.
“There was a need for a control mechanism that could detect farm misconfigurations.”
– Gonzalo Becerra, IT Lead, Ernst & Young
EY had difficulties with communication between teams. Architecture team who was responsible for SharePoint infrastructure’s design didn’t have any means to follow the project after its deployment. SPDocKit successfully helped with this task and became a valuable helper in Ernst & Young’s IT team.
