The first few steps after implementation are often the most critical. A sudden uptick in user adoption shortly arrives and may expose any design inconsistencies not discovered during performance testing. Previously defined service level agreements (SLAs) with the business may also be in effect, restricting the times that the system can be down for maintenance.
Ensuring reliability and performance levels during this period is a key requirement for user adoption of the new platform. Effective administration and monitoring of the SharePoint environment can capture events, addressing any misconfigurations or design shortfalls before they affect user adoption.
