Information Management Services
Your business runs on information. It’s as indispensible as cash
flow, expert personnel, and clients. And for information to be truly useful you
have to be able to move it to where it’s needed when it’s needed and in the form
needed. This is the core of Gig Werks’ Information Management Services practice.
Our people are experts at analyzing your information management needs, selecting
the right choice of software and configuring it to optimally serve you. Our Information
Management Services include:
How long can you wait? Do you have any people with the time to

management platform? If not, get your jumpstart to value by taking advantage of
the experience the Gig Werks team has had developing high-performing SharePoint
solutions for hundreds of different kinds of companies. We learn about your business

Any solid construction starts with a rock-solid foundation. Let
the Gig Werks experts install and deploy SharePoint Server for you correctly the
first time so you can enjoy all of the benefits as soon as possible and for as long
as possible with minimal support headaches. You know how they say “there’s never
time to do it right, but always times to do it over?” Well, we don’t believe that.
Information Architecture (IA)
way it works is simple, you buy your advisory services hours, and if
you have a question that re-quires assistance, you call Gig Werks and we
put you in touch with the appropriate SharePoint expert to help solve
your current technical staff with the SharePoint expertise of Gig
Werks. Gig Werks now offers Advisory services around SharePoint 2007,
SharePoint 2010, and SharePoint 2013 to give your team the guidance and
technical know-how to maintain your SharePoint environment and keep your
projects on track.
What goes where? That’s the question you want
to answer with Information Architecture planning. The process
helps you plan from the start a design and site hierarchy that’s easy for users
to follow. With a well-planned Information Architecture, users
can easily navigate across and within team sites, document libraries and lists to
find the information they need. Gig Werks’ IA planning services
make sure to build in flexibility to handle future needs.
Gig Werks can work with your company to build a set of related
keywords (called managed metadata) organized into a hierarchy of information, such
as a well-defined product category or materials list, that you can then use to apply
as metadata to documents. The taxonomy helps improve the consistency, reliability,
and discoverability of information within a SharePoint site collection.
Keeping your information secure, while being able to share it with
those who need access, is one of today’s biggest challenges for most organizations.
Whether the requirements come from your own organization, government agencies
or industry standards, we can help you deploy the tools to:
- Set permissions
- Maintain audit trails
- Apply policies for retention and disposal of documents
- Create workflows for alerts and reviews
Web Development, Internet Application Development
Unleashing the real power of SharePoint requires extensive knowledge
of Microsoft’s .NET programming and related software technologies designed to produce
useful customized business applications that use the internet. The Gig Werks team
offers extensive experience and expertise in expanding and enhancing the functionality
of SharePoint. Not only do we make it work, we also make it work better and in new
ways you just begin to imagine when you start using SharePoint to collaborate, manage,
and share your valuable business information.
Many clients also turn to Gig Werks for development of websites
and web-based applications that do not require SharePoint.
Making sure it gets done, and gets done quickly. These are
the two primary objectives of anyone who manages any process. Of course the
more automation you use to help you manage that process the more certain you
can be of on-time completion, and SharePoint provides the most powerful yet
flexible process automation tools available. In the hands of the experts from
Gig Werks your company can enjoy the same return and other benefits that other
Gig Werks clients have depended upon for years.

From tracking version histories to co-authoring documents simultaneously, people
will become more productive delivering information to clients faster and more accurately.
Gig Werks’ ECMA services can help you match the right tools to your users’ needs.
Reporting and Analysis Services
The Executive Dream: Having the ability to get answers
quickly in a way that’s easy to read and doesn’t take forever to access. Clear,
pertinent reports and on-screen inquiry “dashboards” that present all the key
performance indicators in context to truly support effective decision making.
With the power of SharePoint’s Business Data Connector and other technologies
Gig Werks provides your executives, managers, and others with the ready access
they need to readily understandable reports and crystal-clear dashboard-style
displays that keep everything in context. Your executives will see their dream
You don’t invest in technology for technology’s
sake. You invest in having the ability to manage your information better
because only by having all information at your fingertips will you be able to
properly analyze and effectively manage your business. Information may reside
in a variety of places such as accounting systems, spreadsheets, documents,
personnel systems, operations, and other databases. Gig Werks uses SharePoint
to connect different information sources together so your users don’t have to.
This consolidated information is presented in clear easy-to-read reports,
on-screen inquiries, data dashboards and other quickly accessed forms. And
SharePoint provides tools to help you perform various analyses as you need to.
Let the experts from Gig Werks be your guide to better management of business
intelligence with SharePoint.
We teach you how to get your work done better and faster. Isn’t
that what’s most important? Typical SharePoint classes give you a good overview
of how the Microsoft product works, but don’t teach you about the applications and
solutions that have been developed specifically for your use. Gig Werks trains users
to use their SharePoint solutions productively so they can get right down to work.
