Situation  

Determination of the cost and if the existing Market Development Funds Angular application could be migrated to a modernized SPFx SharePoint Online platform. It was also important to understand if we could effectively estimate the requirements for outstanding stories around the Process Flow, Funding, and Reporting. 

Solution 

A Proof of Concept was executed that took the existing Angular application and updated it to be able to run within the SharePoint Online frameworkWe also provided a detailed backlog of the cost to migrate the application ‘as-is’ into SPO including the limitations of staying with the Angular technology In addition, a skeleton React application within an SPO web part was created. One section of the MDF form was rendered during the POC, which provided a detailed backlog of the cost to completely rewrite the application in React.

ThreeWill tasks: 

  • Provisioned an O365 site with enough of the Market Development Funds lists and libraries to be able to convert and run the Angular App in the Modern experience. 
  • Provisioned an O365 site to show that we can convert the form to a React app that will work in the Modern experience.
