Office 365 FAQs
Can I move all my data to Office 365?
You can move all of your data to the cloud. While Office 365 is most suitable for the storage of company documents and any kind of organisational records, such as customer or employee information, we offer a number of other cloud based solutions to accommodate third-party software packages like accounting applications.
On rare occasions you may need to continue hosting a limited number of files on-premises, for example if you are working with large video files. If this is a requirement, ISAAC recommends the most future proof and cost effective solution ensuring your files are backed up to the cloud seamlessly.
What about my other systems/databases?
Will there be downtime, during the migration?
Zero-loss mail migration approach ensures that you don’t loss any e-mails as switch over happens. We usually perform this final change on out of hours and you continue working on Office 365 seamlessly.
Can I change the plan that I'm on?
The ISAAC team are happy to discuss alternative plans with you to make sure you get the right configuration for your business.
NOTE: When you upgrade your account, your domain name is transferred to your new account, whether you brought your own domain name to the Office 365 account or you set up a domain name with Office 365.
SharePoint Applications FAQs
What is a SharePoint Application?
Today’s organisations typically find themselves having to choose between two extremes when it comes to software platforms such as CRM, HR or Project Tracking. They either go for off-the-shelf software packages that offer minimal customisation options and eventually force them to align their processes to the application’s capabilities, instead of running the business as they see fit. Or, they opt for in-house or third-party software development, which offers almost unlimited customisation potential at an extremely high cost for initial development and ongoing support.
ISAAC Applications sit anywhere between these two extremes. For smaller SMEs, an ISAAC Element acts as a fully functional SharePoint template, enabling them to get going with a very small investment, and allowing the platform to be aligned to their specific needs in time, at their own pace. For larger organisations, ISAAC Applications act as a foundation, enabling you to save the bulk of the development time and cost, allowing us to focus on your organisation’s specific requirements.
ISAAC SharePoint Applications are based on a combination of standard SharePoint features and carefully selected and vetted third-party modules to give you a fluid and intuitive experience.
What if I don't have Office 365 yet?
For example, you could start with SharePoint and improve your business processes and productivity, and then look to move documents and email later. To discuss your best path to the cloud, why not contact our team.
Can I use your applications with all versions of Office 365?
SharePoint Online is included in the following: – all Business and all Enterprise versions of Office 365.
Applications can also be deployed in up to date versions of SharePoint server. If you currently have an existing on premise SharePoint installation that you’d like to utilise, then please get in touch to discuss this, if you have an existing on premise SharePoint installation that you’d like to utilise.
Can I add an Application to an existing Sharepoint development?
We can even help you integrate your new Applications with what you have setup already.
Can I trial ISAAC Elements ?
The best option to start with is a guided demo, where one of our senior Information Management Consultants will guide you through the Applications(s) of your choice to enable your discovery of the most differentiating aspects. We usually schedule a demo session within one business day after receiving your request.
Following a guided demo session, and should you wish to trial elements directly, or want to share your experience further within your organisation, then ISAAC can provide credentials for our fully featured demo installation where you can actually use SharePoint Applications at full ‘power’ with full functionality.
