DocAve 6 automates information and service management across distributed on-premise, cloud, or hybrid farms, says company
AvePoint, a provider of governance offerings for Microsoft SharePoint has released the public beta of DocAve 6, the enterprise-class management platform for SharePoint governance.
The company said that DocAve 6 is a significant update to AvePoint’s management platform, designed to increase business productivity, reduce total cost of ownership, provide IT assurance, and enable security and compliance for enterprise content.
DocAve 6 extends the platform’s capabilities to unify management of on-premise, cloud, and hybrid SharePoint farms, including Office 365, said AvePoint.
The company also introduced Governance Automation, which leverages the capabilities of DocAve 6 to provide an efficient means for organisations to implement and enforce SharePoint governance policies, enabling automated, end-to-end service and information management.
The company said DocAve 6 makes it easy to deploy and migrate to SharePoint 2010, configure and administer SharePoint farms, optimise storage and performance, and ensure the integrity, security, and availability of content.
DocAve 6 also enables centralised or delegated management of SharePoint farms hosted on-premise, or in private or public clouds such as Office 365. DocAve 6 also manages development, testing, and production farms, and provides application lifecycle management tools to govern the deployment of solutions and components, said the company.
The company added that DocAve 6 is built entirely with Microsoft technologies and standards, including .NET, WCF, and Silverlight. DocAve 6 also provides administrators and developers both PowerShell cmdlets and APIs with which to customise, automate, and extend the platform’s rich capabilities.
AvePoint Co-Founder and Co-CEO Dr Tianyi (TJ) Jiang said more than a document with policies and procedures, governance must be woven into the fabric of service management.
Tianyi Jiang said, "Working closely with more than 8,000 customers across 63 countries for more than a decade, we consistently hear the same message: Help us implement IT governance for SharePoint."
"DocAve allows customers to implement governance and management of SharePoint, and DocAve 6 is an important evolution of our flagship product to support governance of cloud and hybrid farms. With the introduction of Governance Automation, we provide the technology that allows you to ensure governance policies are enforced, automated, and audited throughout your entire SharePoint ecosystem."
