Customer Profile
Headquartered in Barcelona, Spain and Paris, France, Orangina Schweppes markets,
bottles, and distributes a number of soft drinks through a unique portfolio of leading
products that includes iconic brands such as Orangina, Schweppes, Oasis, Trina, La
Casera and Pulco, and niche brands such as Champomy, Gini, Vida, and Pampryl.
Although Western Europe remains the heart of the business, the company’s products
are sold in more than 60 countries, reaching as far as Eastern Europe, Africa, the
Middle East, and Asia-Pacific.
The Challenge
At the beginning of 2011, Orangina Schweppes acquired the fruit drink brand Sunny
Delight in Europe and North Africa. While Orangina Schweppes did not utilise
Microsoft SharePoint, Sunny Delight employees had been using the platform for
collaboration and document storage. Within Sunny Delight’s SharePoint farm were
hundreds of thousands of important documents, including formula cards for the
company’s products and marketing materials. In order to make the transition as
seamless as possible for all employees and ensure maximum business productivity, it
was essential that Orangina Schweppes add Sunny Delight’s SharePoint farm to its
existing environment.
However, moving the SharePoint farm into Orangina Schweppes’s environment would
pose one major challenge: When moving the data from Sunny Delight’s domain to
Orangina Schweppes’s domain, all of Sunny Delight’s existing user permissions would
be lost. With hundreds of thousands of documents and SharePoint users from Sunny
Delight, assigning permissions by hand in the new environment was simply too tedious
and time consuming to be considered a viable option. Writing a long, complicated script to
and time consuming to be considered a viable option. Writing
a long, complicated script to automate the process would be
just as challenging. “Migrating a huge number of documents
inside a customised SharePoint environment from one
Microsoft Windows domain to another did not seem like an
easy thing to do,” said Felip Bescós, EUC Group Responsible at
Orangina Schweppes.
network. Schmidt then set up the new SharePoint farm on the
Orangina Schweppes domain. “Once the SharePoint farms
were set up, I used DocAve Content Manager to develop a
plan to move all of Sunny Delight’s content into the new
Orangina Schwepps SharePoint environment on a scheduled
basis,” said Schmidt. “The job took only 14 hours to move the
25 GB of content onto the new farm, maintaining all
permissions on content down to the item level.”
With a vital need to move its newly acquired SharePoint
content from one domain to another, Orangina Schweppes
immediately sought the help of a consultant. Based on past
experience, former Sunny Delight administrators suggested
bringing in Raona for the job. Raona is a multinational IT
company specializing in Microsoft technologies with a strong
focus on SharePoint. “Raona clearly had a deep knowledge of
our SharePoint environment, was highly recommended by
past customers, and exemplified professionalism,” Bescós
said. “I was confident this combination would lead to a
successful implementation.”
Once the job was complete, Raona was able to move all
content with permissions and all data history in tact in only
two days. “Working with DocAve Content Manager was very
easy,” Schmidt said. “Without DocAve, we would have needed
to basically create our own custom solution to move the
whole farm. Between analyzing, developing, testing, and
stabilizing, this project would have taken at least three
months. By offering such an easy way to move content
between SharePoint farms, AvePoint is truly a life saver.”
The Bottom Line
The AvePoint Solution
In order to obtain the technology necessary to solve Orangina
Schweppes’s challenge, Raona sought the help of its partner
AvePoint, the leader in enterprise-class governance and
infrastructure management solutions for SharePoint. Raona
implemented DocAve Content Manager, which is part of the
DocAve Software Platform. DocAve integrates more than 30
independently deployable modules which function within a
unified, browser-based interface and fully distributed
architecture, but can also be purchased and deployed
independently.
The combination of Raona’s service with AvePoint’s
technology helped solve Orangina Schweppes’s SharePoint
challenge in a matter of days, helping the transition resulting
from the acquisition happen much smoother. “With Raona’s
knowledge and AvePoint’s solution, we avoided having to
spend the time reassigning item-level permissions to all
published documents,” Bescós said. “Carrying out this task
was easy with Raona and AvePoint.”
DocAve Content Manager addresses organisations' need to
periodically reorganise SharePoint's information architecture
to meet evolving business needs. Users can seamlessly copy,
move, and reorganise SharePoint content across multiple
SharePoint farms. DocAve enables full-fidelity data retention –
including all permissions, metadata, security settings, and
version histories.
With the new SharePoint farm in place and former Sunny
Delight employees accessing all content just as before the
acquisition, Orangina Schweppes is now making plans to utilise
the farm as a baseline to potentially implement SharePoint
throughout other business units in the organisation.
