We are very proud to tell that Microsoft published today a global case study explaining how we among the first companies in the world did the transformation from Full Trust Code (FTC) to SharePoint App Model. Microsoft published the new coding principles early this year, and our newest version of the Valo Intranet Suite is 100 % built on the new Add-ins model. The case study highlights the background, our Valo solution and the benefits, too.
Cloud business as the key driver
A key driver for our transformation was to have the same code base for SharePoint Server and SharePoint Online customers, especially as they were receiving more requests from customers for SharePoint Online. “The main business reason for transforming our Valo intranet solution from Full trust code to the Office 365 Cloud App Model is our business model transformation moving toward a cloud based business”, says Jari Pullinen, Sales Director.
Achieving the most challenging functionalities
“We have worked with SharePoint for three major versions and this is the first one we feel comfortable customizing with the Add-ins model”, says Tomi Tavela, our Solution Architect. “This is really the model of developing SharePoint we have been waiting for! Of course you need to think differently what you can and what you can’t do, but I think we have managed that very well and found ways of creating alternative ways of achieving even the most challenging functionalities.”
