About the Client
Client is the world’s largest producer of sodium cyanide with a total annual capacity of more than 350 million pounds, supplied globally. Sodium cyanide is an important chemical used in the Gold mining industry. They offer sodium cyanide-liquid, sodium cyanide-solid, solid-to-liquid systems, cyanide control systems, peroxide assisted leach, oxitrol on-line CNWAD analysers, and detoxification technologies.
Client used SharePoint Online as an enterprise-wide platform for their corporate intranet. The SharePoint Online Portal had implementation gaps and lacked the foundation needed to run as a long-term enterprise-wide solution. The client wanted a new user interface, active personal file sharing, higher storage limits for both personal and team sites, and more robust tool for admins to easily and effectively control their SharePoint Online (SPO) environment.
The client approached Silicus to replace their current system with a re-architected and enhanced "SharePoint Online based Corporate Intranet Solution".
