Axceler Launches New Versions of SharePoint Governance Products

ControlPoint Suite Supports Microsoft SharePoint 2013

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Oct 23, 2012) - Axceler, the leader in Microsoft SharePoint governance, administration and migration solutions, today announced new versions of ControlPoint FileLoader as well as its flagship product, ControlPoint for SharePoint Administration. Both new versions will now support Microsoft SharePoint 2013.

ControlPoint FileLoader is a migration tool that quickly and easily move files from Microsoft Windows folders into SharePoint on-premise, hosted or Office 365 environments. Administrators can use one migration tool to address all of these environments as organizations migrate to cloud and hybrid environments.

ControlPoint FileLoader moves the workload and content migration decisions to the data owners but allows IT to have a final review prior to the migration. This assures that all of the organizations compliance and governance rules are adhered to and that a structured change management process is followed. Alternatively, the Power User module enables IT to push responsibility for the day to day uploading of files down to the users closest to those files and can alleviate administrative bottlenecks. Organizations may wish to allow trusted end users, such as directors, to perform the entire migration process with no involvement from IT. This latest version will also support Microsoft SharePoint 2013.

"This tool enables us to work with our end users to leverage a common interface. With FileLoader I am able to process going from old to new hardware and still maintain a secure and concise audit trail to ensure a minimal to no loss of data," said Brian Gough, SharePoint Administrator, Polypore.

ControlPoint FileLoader enables organizations to:

  • Quickly and easily move files from Microsoft Windows folders into SharePoint
  • Offload content migration decisions to data owners while maintaining control
  • Migrate to on-premise, hosted or Office 365 environments
  • Filter content to be migrated by: date ranges, file size, or file extension
  • Different modules for Administrators, End Users, and Power Users
  • Install on Windows 7, Windows 8 and Server 2008

Axceler is also announcing support for SharePoint 2013 in its award-winning governance solution, ControlPoint for SharePoint Administration. ControlPoint for SharePoint Administration gives Microsoft SharePoint professionals the ability to easily establish rules, policies, and responsibilities, manage permissions, copy sites, and analyze activity.
