MetaVis Technologies Releases MetaVis Migrator for SharePoint

Migrate and Copy Content Between SharePoint Servers While Retaining Metadata Properties

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - January 18, 2010) - MetaVis Technologies, Inc. today announced the availability of MetaVis Migrator for SharePoint allowing organizations to copy content between SharePoint servers, including SharePoint 2003, 2007 and 2010, and file systems while retaining critical metadata information. MetaVis Migrator is designed for continuous use making it easy for companies to organize their SharePoint environments. As companies look to implement SharePoint or extend their existing investments, MetaVis Migrator helps mitigate the risks associated with moving content. It ensures that all content characteristics and tags such as document properties, column values and version history are retained and easily searchable.

"Today many companies are looking to reorganize and migrate content that is in disparate SharePoint repositories into one central repository for improved manageability and search," said Steven Pogrebivsky, CEO and Co-founder of MetaVis Technologies. "MetaVis Migrator simplifies the entire process by using a familiar Windows Explorer interface allowing users to drag and drop items into the new SharePoint system. This ultimately reduces the cost, time and risk with content migration."

The new MetaVis Migrator for SharePoint allows users to intelligently copy sites, lists, libraries, folders or individual items between SharePoint environments for consolidation, upgrade or compliance purposes. Users can easily load files from network drives and classify legacy or imported content to unlock the full potential of SharePoint search and navigation. MetaVis Migrator does not require any components or agents installed on the SharePoint server making it ideal for secure hosted environments. Additional features in MetaVis Migrator for SharePoint include:

--  Copy multiple selected items between folders, lists, sites or servers
    and simultaneously change or keep content types and column values;
--  Copy entire sites (with sub-sites), lists and libraries along with
    their content types and columns while retaining version history;
--  Load files and folders from file system to SharePoint library in bulk
    while assigning them a content type and column values;
--  Change content types and assign column values for multiple selected
    documents or list items;
--  Assign values to mandatory columns during file copy; and
--  Save rules for column mapping as templates for re-use in the future.

Using MetaVis Migrator combined with MetaVis Architect, customers have the added benefit of reorganizing content for improved search and site documentation. MetaVis Architect uses a graphical interface that allows companies, right from the very beginning, to design SharePoint sites that incorporate taxonomy structures and metadata management for easy site organization.
