The problem: Migration to a new technology stackThe company built OneWindow Workplace as a hosted solution that brings together the components of the powerful Microsoft 365 platform—such as SharePoint, Yammer, Skype, OneDrive, Groups, Videos, Office Graph, and Planner—in a single digital window. The system allows users to tailor a standard Microsoft 365 deployment to any organization's needs while reducing the cost and complexity of adopting it. However, due to the maturation of SharePoint’s intranet capabilities the decision was made to migrate OneWindow to the “modern” embedded SharePoint Framework (SPFx). This was designed to further simplify maintenance and extend functionality, making OneWindow Workplace more integrated with Microsoft's platform.


In the course of the project, Brimit’s team applied its extensive experience in customizing Microsoft 365. In close cooperation with Withum, we aligned the existing solution’s architecture with a new technology stack and SharePoint’s Modern UI capabilities. Brimit helped to improve the overall quality of the product and optimize the delivery process.


Finally, Brimit developed a module that helped OneWindow Workplace’s users to optimize website governance. This module enables a company employee to create a microsite on the intranet by choosing from a variety of templates for particular departments (e.g., finance, marketing, HR, etc.). Unlike the default functionality available in Microsoft 365, these templates allow a department to automatically create a website structure with all the necessary documentation specific to the department. The layout of the newly created website will also comply with the corporate style.
