MicroSoft Office 365 Cloud Usage Enablement

MS Office 365, comprising SharePoint, Outlook, Teams, Planner, Power Automate, Forms, etc, has been adopted and installed by many area non-profits, which is a good step toward cloud-based collaboration so that information and document sharing can take place outside the office. However, much of the power of Office 365 is not known to these organizations, such as how it can be used to build intranet/extranet websites and workflow applications that manage essential operations such as contact (Client/Donor) management. This project will lead to: (1) Getting small non-profits to better use products such as SharePoint and (2) Build simple CRM (or other apps) to demonstrate the quick app development capability of SharePoint, Power Automate.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
