GTconsult releases governance maturity framework, with related whitepaper and self-assessment survey, to measure SharePoint and Office 365 governance readiness

GTconsult, a Microsoft Gold partner in Content and Collaboration specializing in SharePoint, Office 365, Exchange, and Yammer deployments and adoption services, today has announced the launch of the SharePoint Governance Maturity Model (GMM), with the goal of aiding organizations in setting a clear path for governance maturity. 

SharePoint governance continues to be a major concern for our SharePoint and Office 365 customers,” stated GTconsult co-founder and CEO Bradley Geldenhuys. “Our company is committed to helping customers create stronger governance practices, because well-managed environments directly impact the end user experience with SharePoint, and that means more productivity, more efficiencies, and business value.”

According to the most recent industry survey (Automating Information Governance-Assuring Compliance, May 2014), developing and enforcing governance standards continues to be a top concern for organizations. The governance maturity model provides a baseline for any SharePoint environment, whether online or on prem, representing the different stages of an organization against a governance framework, showing participating organizations where they fit against industry best practices. With a baseline identified, organizations can identify any gaps within processes or technology, set goals for improvement, and establish a clear path for growth.

The SharePoint Governance Maturity Model assessment is available for free at
