Client Profile

Situation

Customer had  a legacy mature  implementation of SharePoint 2010 on-premises.    A Strategic decision to move to O365/SharePoint Online was made.  This created a need for a hybrid implementation.

Solution

Ensuring a rich user experience required two key areas to be addressed for the hybrid environment: profile synchronization and search.  To maintain a consistent user profile, ThreeWill built a custom profile synchronization application and profile page redirector.  For Search,  Online and On-Prem were federated taking into account authentication, redirects, refiners, security trimming, and result blocks.
