2008 Winner Profile

Viacom

Project Description:
Viacom needed to upgrade its existing portal for companywide communication and collaboration. Using Microsoft SharePoint for use allowed the media giant to give its business groups a single source of information as well as a standardized process for collaboration that is cost-effective, easy to use and integrates with the existing IT infrastructure. Responsibility for content management and site maintenance has moved to the business groups and end users. For its part, IT has been able to move from day-to-day management and maintenance of the sites to being able to develop applications to streamline and improve the business.
