SharePoint Manager

Activate SharePoint Manager provides the management of Microsoft SharePoint based on corporate policies and provisioning processes. Microsoft SharePoint has the ability to provide out-of-the-box provisioning within the product. However, the all or nothing approach means that unless tightly controlled by corporate policies your SharePoint environment can rapidly become unmanageable.


Activate extends this functionality to allow corporate policies and governance to be automated while still allowing business users to manage their own environment. For example, the creation of new Sites is managed so that users may create new Sites with approval or may only create certain ‘types’ of sub-sites at any one location.


Implementation of new systems like SharePoint can provide significant benefit to the business. However, without the integration of management processes into the overall infrastructure management they can cause an increase in load on the IT organization to support and manage the new environment. This can cause service management issues and reduce the user’s perceived value of the new system and functionality.

Activate SharePoint Manager provides stream-lined management and provisioning processes that ensures that the investment you are making in SharePoint is a success, while increasing the functionality and reducing the impact on the IT service organization.
