Axceler's SharePoint Administration Tool

SharePoint sites and farms become challenging to administer as they grow. Axceler's ControlPoint helps. It was launched in January 2008, and the main features are:

  • User and permission management.
  • Site management (setting quotas, ensuring consistent appearance, etc.).
  • Reporting across many sites on permissions and usage (including activity, storage, and content).
  • Identifying problem sites.
  • Performing actions across many sites.

So it lets you do things like:

  • Analyze and enforce permissions.
  • Clean up user accounts.
  • Isolate sites that are no longer needed and delete them.
  • Determine who is accessing which documents.
  • Find sites with the most or least activity.
  • Find sites with the most or least storage.
  • Anticipate growth by monitoring sites or storage.
  • Monitor activity trends.

Pricing is $5,000 to $10,000 for server software, plus a per-user charge typically in the $0.50 to $1 range; plus maintenance.

SharePoint has had tremendous success. A series of third-party vendors, such as Axceler, are spotting opportunities to add value. Expect SharePoint to end up with a rich third-party vendor community, in much the same way as Exchange and Notes/Domino have. ... David Ferris

About Ferris Research

Ferris Research studies messaging, and the control of electronic information. More specifically, we help IT staff evaluate and implement products and services that:

  • Provide messaging and collaborative technologies
  • Archive electronic information
  • Ensure compliance with corporate policy, industry regulations, and laws
  • Facilitate e-discovery, and contain its costs
  • Reduce the dangers of information leaks

Email is the most important type of electronic information that requires control today. Other important types include instant messages, Sharepoint teamspaces, images, voice, video, and miscellaneous desktop files.

We've been in business since 1990--longer than any other analyst firm in our field:

  • Clients include 300 of the world's 1,000 largest organizations, and computer vendors from the largest corporations to small startups
  • While other analysts have come and gone, we've published more than 200 formal reports and 1,100 short bulletins
  • Our news service covers more than 2,000 highly specialized announcements annually
  • We have nine experts in our research team, sharing many decades of experience in our core competencies

In short, our technology and industry depth helps you understand today's products, where they've come from and where they're going.
