Category: Governance

Businessdictionary.com defines Governance as the establishment of policies, and continuous monitoring of their proper implementation, by the members of the governing body of an organisation. It includes the mechanisms required to balance the powers of the members (with the associated accountability), and their primary duty of enhancing the prosperity and viability of the organisation. This can also be referred to as corporate governance.

In short, it is a method of governing the company like a sovereign state, instating its own customs, policies and laws to its employees from the highest to the lowest levels.

Therefore, our Governance Category is full of handy tips, tricks and advise. Check out some of the Step by Step blogs or learn with our eBooks, How To videos and Webinars.

represents a powerful new option, offering increased flexibility, efficiency, and reduced cost for IT infrastructure, data
storage, and applications. However, for a variety of business and technical reasons, most organizations will take a
phased approach to adopting cloud-based services, which will require them to continue to maintain their on-premises

Are you thinking about deploying SharePoint in your organization? You won’t have to do much research before
you come across the big “G” word – governance. Just the word itself is somewhat imposing and definitions for
it will vary. In fact, if you ask three different experts what governance means, you’re likely to get four different
answers. And while I have yet to find that one, perfect definition of governance, I can accept this one from
Microsoft: “Governance is the set of policies, roles, responsibilities, and processes that guides, directs, and
controls how an organization’s business divisions and IT teams cooperate to achieve business goals.” In short,
it is a “how to” guide.
