As well as being knowledgeable and skilled SharePoint (2007 and 2010) experts, Black Marble also supports and provides access to Microsoft's Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS) - and in particular Online SharePoint.
With SharePoint Online, you can give your business a highly secure, central location where employees can efficiently collaborate with team members, find organisational resources, manage content and workflow, and gain the business insight to make better-informed decisions. Employees can create and manage custom team- and project-focused intranet sites for collaboration and document sharing.
BPOS provides the tools to extend new capabilities to your organisation without straining internal resources.
With BPOS, your end users have a unified experience to access all of the hosted services you're using, and administrators only have one place to go to manage subscriptions and to configure all Online Services. Your end users have the ability to securely access the service anywhere without the need for a VPN connection and through a wide selection of mobile devices.
The service uses secure Internet protocols including HTTPS and HTTP over SSL to access your services, with redundant network architecture capable of disaster recovery. In the event of datacenter connectivity issues, services switch over to a backup datacentre.
With BPOS, you can quickly enhance or expand your IT capacity by adding new services without having to deploy new hardware and software.
Microsoft Online Services run on a global network of world-class data centers. They are protected by multiple layers of security and operational best practices, guarantee a service level agreement of 99.9% uptime, and are managed by rigorously screened and highly trained staff
