Business Advantages for Microsoft SharePoint Administration

  • DocAve Administrator centralizes SharePoint administration and application control, allows for instant discovery of new sites, and simplifies permissions management at every level. IT administrators can perform all SharePoint administrative functions in bulk and across multiple SharePoint environments – whether on-premises or hosted in Office 365 or other cloud providers – at any object level. Regardless of the number of the servers or farms, DocAve Administrator reduces the costs associated with deployment and management of a complex SharePoint infrastructure.

  • Through a highly intuitive interface, featuring wizard or form-based plans and familiar ribbon-based controls, administrators can easily identify SharePoint assets dispersed across the enterprise and hosted in Office 365 using a rule-based search, and propagate configuration and security permissions to web applications, sites, folders, and lists in bulk, resulting in quicker time-to-value of each update. Objects selected using tree or search modes can be saved for quick access in the future.

  • By continuously monitoring and taking action on your SharePoint environments, Policy Enforcer rapidly responds to unauthorized modifications in features, permissions, and settings. Policy Enforcer ensures that all SharePoint sites remain under control and all actions or changes to your SharePoint environment fall within your organization’s defined SharePoint governance policies.

  • DocAve Administrator helps simplify the implementation and enforcement of SharePoint governance and compliance policies by easily controlling settings and user permissions that are otherwise difficult and time-consuming to implement. DocAve Administrator delivers granular, precise control over security permissions – down to the item-level – across entire local and cloud-based SharePoint deployments.
