Hillsborough Area Regional Transit

Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority

MethodFactory implemented Microsoft SharePoint and provided the architecture design for the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority, working with HART’s IT department to determine the number of servers they would need, set them up and configure them.  This resulted in network architecture that not only accommodates current users, but affords HART the ability to grow its intranet as the organization’s needs change and the volume of users increases.

Client Background

The Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART) was created in 1979 to plan, finance, acquire, construct, operate and maintain mass transit facilities and supply transportation assistance in Hillsborough County (Tampa Bay area).

Business Challenge

HART developed an extensive intranet in-house for their 800-plus employees to be able to access important information, but they needed outside help to get it up and running and to make sure the robust system would be technically supported.  Though they had both the concepts and content for the organization’s intranet, called Connect, HART needed an infrastructure in place to handle the high volume of users as well as the flexibility to grow as the number of employees increased.

HART sought out MethodFactory’s expertise to conduct performance and load testing as well as provide optimization services to the HART IT staff, ensuring that the right support and infrastructure would be in place to effectively run Connect.

Solution

MethodFactory implemented Microsoft SharePoint and provided the SharePoint architecture design.  We worked behind the scenes with HART’s IT department to determine the number of servers they would need, then set up and configured the servers.  This resulted in network architecture that not only accommodates current users, but affords HART the ability to grow its intranet as the organization’s needs change and the volume of users increases.  MethodFactory continues to provide HART with ongoing application support.
