WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Mar 27, 2013) - Metalogix, the leading provider of content infrastructure software to improve the use and performance of enterprise content on Microsoft SharePoint, Exchange and Cloud platforms, today announced the latest release of Metalogix Content Matrix with intuitive features and simple management user interface to help organizations prepare, migrate and maintain SharePoint content in both SharePoint 2013 and Office 365. Content Matrix is the evolution of Metalogix Migration Manager -- the most widely used SharePoint upgrade technology since first being introduced to the market in 2001.
Due to the growth and evolution of SharePoint, migrating to SharePoint 2013 has become a mission-critical undertaking for most organizations due to large amounts of existing content housed in a variety of legacy, complex and accidental site structures. Organizations are looking for a better way to address these legacy SharePoint farm structures to ensure a non-disruptive migration that is completed on time. Prior to Content Matrix 6.1, SharePoint administrators were forced to work with site and content owners and use low-level scripting tools to perform the cleanup and preparation while suffering from escalating help desk calls post-migration from end users to change content organization and metadata. They also had to face the manual, error-prone and time-consuming process of deleting unused sites, consolidating site collections and cleaning up metadata. With Content Matrix 6.1, administrators can streamline the entire migration process by aligning content with the information architecture of the target SharePoint 2013 or Office 365 environment.
"The latest release of Content Matrix with its new user interface significantly increased what we've been able to do with our SharePoint, such as link correction and site type mapping," said Patrick Wirtz, Innovation Manager, The Walsh Group. "It is a huge benefit for our company that we can use Content Matrix for all of our SharePoint migration and consolidation needs. We have content from SharePoint, websites, Public Folders and file shares that we can seamlessly move and manage with only one product."
Metalogix Content Matrix 6.1 draws upon over a decade of experience as the industry's most popular SharePoint migration tool to offer organizations an easier and more scalable way to prepare for a migration and keep content organized post-migration. SharePoint Administrators can access the powerful content organizations tools in Content Matrix through the SharePoint Central Admin interface to delete unwanted content, move and merge site collections, and streamline site structures, users, groups, content types and other SharePoint elements. Content Matrix provides content organization tools to SharePoint 2010 and 2013 Site Owners and end users via the Ribbon and Context Menu user interface. Administrators can now grant end users the ability to easily bulk import, move, copy and categorize content they own.
Content Matrix is the only product an organization needs to upgrade, migrate and organize SharePoint 2013 and Office 365 content. It goes beyond basic Microsoft upgrade and site organization tools to provide one-hop, high-speed and high-fidelity migrations from any previous version of SharePoint as well as from other content sources such as file shares, websites or Exchange Public Folders. The new content organization and end user capabilities streamline migration preparation, enhance the SharePoint 2013 user experience and reduce ongoing help desk costs. Effort and errors during a migration are reduced by allowing end users to directly tag what content should be migrated, copied or moved to a site or library for the migration. Commonly requested tasks following a migration, such as copying existing site structures, can be done easily and safely delegated to end users who are most familiar with the content.
"The amount of content accessed, stored and managed through SharePoint is nearly doubling every year, which puts a tremendous amount of strain on administrators and IT directors. With Content Matrix, we are giving them all of the tools they need to succeed in managing and organizing their content in SharePoint within one, single product," said Steven Murphy, CEO, Metalogix. "For organizations looking to move to SharePoint 2013 or Office 365, Content Matrix provides the ability to prepare and complete an upgrade with high-speed and high-fidelity as well as to restructure and reorganize their content before and after migration."
