What is involved in technical implementation?
Velaku is deployed directly in your existing Office365 tenant. Velaku is packaged to deploy into the tenant with only a few mouse clicks.
What is the typical preparation effort for implementing Velaku?
We offer full implementation services, including consulting services to aid your teams in preparing for implementation – which is focused primarily around content. If your team does not currently have a formalized process for content auditing, assessment or planning, you don’t need to reinvent the wheel. We have all the tools, templates and project plans and your Velaku Consultants will guide you through the process.
How long does a typical implementation take?
Technical deployment is very fast. Velaku can be up and running within weeks.
While the technical deployment itself takes no more than a day, the primary implementation effort involves content. Therefore, a more common timeframe for most customers is 6-10 weeks. However, if the state of your existing content is relatively simple, Velaku can go live to users in a much faster timeframe, easily less than a month.
Do you use Agile for implementation?
Yes, the implementation and ongoing support services use an agile methodology.
Do you use Microsoft PnP?
Yes, we use PNP (Pattern & Practices), which is an initiative that include samples & guidance to transform full trust code solutions such as Velaku. PnP is community driven open source project where Microsoft and external community members share our learning’s around implementation practices for Office 365, SharePoint & Office-related applications.
Can Velaku be installed directly from the SharePoint Store or Microsoft AppSource?
While Velaku is packaged for rapid technical deployment into your Office 365 tenant, it is not designed for self-installation directly from, nor is it sold thru the SharePoint Store or Microsoft’s AppSource. Velaku must be deployed by Velaku specialists.
Does Velaku integrate with Workday, SuccessFactors and other HR solutions?
Yes, Velaku can be set up to have SSO into most any solution, based on your internal security network and protocols.
Can I use a company other than Velaku to implement Velaku?
Currently Velaku is only available for technical deployment by our team of experts. You are welcome to engage others to aid with content aspects of the project, such as conducting a content audit, inventory and/or writing or editing content that will be created or migrated onto Velaku .
