At the end of the engagement, you will have a customized roadmap for your unique environment that includes a comprehensive business plan, timelines and resources to help you successfully transform your collaborative processes by using Office SharePoint Server.

An SDPS engagement focuses on three main MSSP sections: Qualify and Develop, Solution, Proof, mapping these to Solution Development, Strategy Briefing and Architecture Design, and Proof of Concept and Production Pilot respectively. Not all SDPS engagements include all of these sections. For example, only the 10-and 15-day engagements provide a Proof-of-Concept.
