Looks to CloudScale to Modernize its Team Collaboration Experience.
Our client, an American film and entertainment company headquartered in Burbank, CA, and founded in 1923, asked CloudScale to partner with them in modernizing their employee intranet experience. We worked with this company to modernize the user experience on SharePoint Modern and migrated many legacy integrated applications to Microsoft Azure SaaS service applications.
Constant Change Requires Flexible Infrastructure.
Employee Experience is Critical to the Success of Applications
Our client was looking for a partner that could modernize their legacy applications and workflows for critical operational business areas with little friction.
With many legacy applications representing over 32,000 lines of code and an intranet that was aging, our client's employees faced constant performance and stability issues with key business processes and workflow execution via the company's intranet.

Experience was everything on this project, and we knew to deliver a successful outcome, the costs and complexity of updating this client's applications had to be quantified and correct from the start. CloudScale started this program with a deep assessment and documentation update of the existing Amazon-based VM infrastructure as well as all custom components and workflows that had been built and integrated into the SharePoint environment. Program Highlights:
Deployed CloudScales governance accelerator framework, which quickly brought the program vision, resources, and execution plan to focus and enabled cross-team delivery efficiency.
Assessed VM-based SharePoint Farm, custom add-ins, workflows, and other legacy components.
Produced high-quality wireframes of what the future intranet and applications would look like.
Produced functional wireframes of each page type to be migrated and all new application functionality.
Built all applications as Azure service fabric-based web apps.
Created a new Intranet in SharePoint Modern and deployed all page and site types with a new look and feel.
Migrated over three terabytes of content into respective sites in a new environment using the MetaLogix toolset.
