Having a solid enterprise architecture foundation is critical to the success and growth of a business. Considering the volatility of many industries, businesses must consistently grow, innovate, and advance their technology to ensure high availability of their products and systems. Seeing that projects fail more than they succeed, it stresses the importance of having a strong enterprise architecture (Schneider, 2020). With this said, it is imperative that a business creates a proper collaborative environment to ensure that all future implementations and developments within their environments are successful. Without these foundations, an enterprise will fail to grow.

This project provides an in-depth analysis of a Microsoft SharePoint implementation in a hospital. The intention was to create a collaborative environment that will support a project to replace their electronic healthcare system, referred to as an EHR system. In this scenario, the enterprise solution has already been implemented and maintained over the course of four months and is used daily. It was my responsibility to plan, implement, and maintain the system to ensure high availability of services. Information regarding the enterprise has been withheld to preserve their privacy.

The objectives of this project are to provide an overview of the organization, the importance of the EHR system in a hospital, possible enterprise solutions, and the overall implementation of the solution. It is important to understand where the hospital was prior to deployment and how the solution has impacted their environment and EHR implementation. After fulfilling these objects, it will show how SharePoint can be a powerful tool in improving the enterprise architecture within an enterprise level environment. Furthermore, improving communication and collaboration for staff in the hospital.
