City of Las Vegas Selects Axceler's ControlPoint 4.0 for Better SharePoint Security Administration, File and Site Management and Reporting

Software Will Provide Improved Management and Control of Municipality's 300-Site SharePoint Environment

WOBURN, MA--(Marketwire - September 27, 2010) - Axceler, the leader in administration software for Microsoft SharePoint, today announced that the City of Las Vegas, Nevada, has selected ControlPoint 4.0 to better manage and control its Microsoft SharePoint environment. 

With 300 SharePoint sites, the City of Las Vegas was looking for more robust administration capabilities than SharePoint provides natively, particularly in the areas of user permission management, SharePoint site analysis and optimization, and reporting. After evaluating three SharePoint administration tools, the city selected ControlPoint 4.0 from Axceler. Fifteen city departments have already implemented ControlPoint, with another five slated for deployment soon.

"We were seeking an administration tool that was easy enough for both our user community and IT staff to use, so everyone could take advantage of the reporting," said Patricia Dues, PMP, Enterprise Program Manager for the City of Las Vegas. "Along with this functionality, we needed both enhanced security administration as well as file and site management to accommodate the expansion of SharePoint into other city departments and to our external consultants."

"We are constantly evaluating how SharePoint is being used in collaborative team environments," added Dues. "We're also considering moving our intranet to SharePoint, and whether to migrate to SharePoint 2010 before we deploy it further. The ControlPoint reports will enable us to develop key performance indicators for monthly measurement, to help us make better informed decisions."

ControlPoint 4.0, the leading SharePoint administration product for Microsoft SharePoint, includes comprehensive permissions management, in-depth activity and storage analysis and the ability to measure performance of SharePoint environments against governance policies. Axceler ControlPoint also gives administrators complete control over the configuration and deployment of their SharePoint environments.
