Today’s global enterprise is a complex ecosystem of distributed technologies, operations, and human intelligence. Because of its unique architecture and relative ease-of-use, Microsoft SharePoint has for many global enterprises become the primary platform through which knowledge workers – wherever they are located – can collaborate and share business-critical digital assets. Though SharePoint is a powerful tool in this regard, an enterprise faces many challenges when attempting to optimise the platform to serve a large, geographically distributed end-user base. The following are key capabilities Microsoft SharePoint administrators must have to ensure the platform is deployed and managed efficiently:
Data access among geographically distributed knowledge workers must be optimised via intelligent replication
Discovery and management of Microsoft SharePoint configuration, securities, and settings across multi-farm deployments must be conducted in an efficient, comprehensive manner
Management and propagation of all Front End components and customisations, SharePoint Solutions, and SharePoint Designer elements throughout testing, staging, development, and production environments must be performed with efficiency and precision – to avoid productivity bottlenecks
Precision movement and reorganisation of Microsoft SharePoint content must be possible, to ensure that all elements are where they need to be, when they need to be there
Vital platform usage and architecture data must be readily available to facilitate effective scalability planning
Easily view, search, manage, report, and replicate configurations and securities of SharePoint objects and users throughout an entire SharePoint deployment from a single interface.
Fully automate the management and propagation of all Front End components and customisations, SharePoint Solutions, and SharePoint Designer elements throughout testing, staging, development, and production environments. Streamline the application lifecycle by making the multi-phased delivery of new platform configurations and elements totally efficient and fully optimised.
Replicate any SharePoint element – from individual items to entire farms – in real-time or according to customisable schedules. With one-way, two-way, and one-to-many replication, reinforced with customisable throttle controls, byte-level differencing, and variable offline synchronisation, you can ensure all your geographically-distributed knowledge workers have access to the SharePoint content they need to achieve optimal productivity.
Seamlessly move any SharePoint object anywhere within or across farms in real-time. Site collections, sites, and items – all can be deftly reorganised and relocated with drag-and-drop ease.
One dashboard for comprehensive platform intelligence, with fully customisable dashboard views and reporting on all aspects of platform usage, health, and resource utilisation. Real-time platform monitoring, comprehensive infrastructure reporting, and dynamic user activity analysis delivered via a single pane of glass for true platform and business intelligence.
Five powerful modules, one comprehensive performance optimisation solution.*
