An international underwriter of specialty insurance and reinsurance products in the property and casualty market wanted to perform a major SharePoint software upgrade after determining through an assessment of administrative and backend reporting that geographical distance was causing latency and reporting demand far exceeded capacity.

Y&L developed a three-tier SharePoint server farm on three servers with roles distributed among them. DB clustering was done to provide scalability and business continuity. Y&L set-up full and incremental backups, optimized crawling and other features. In addition, Y&L analyzed master page and 36 team sites, documented various customizations, requested changes, customized web parts, and identified downstream applications impacted by the change.
