SharePoint Deployment Management

DocAve Deployment Manager for Microsoft® SharePoint® Deployment Management

Manage. Automate Microsoft SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint 2010 implementation from staging to production

Deployment Manager allows organizations to:

  • Automate application lifecycle management

    by propagating changes to solutions, configurations, or customizations – including workflows – on a scheduled basis.
  • Delegate solution or customization deployment tasks

    to appropriate farm or solution administrators in order to increase operational efficiency, while maintaining production environment integrity.
  • Quickly identify

    web-front end (WFE) configurations, design elements, and solutions that are out of sync, and propagate changes within or across farms.

DocAve Deployment Manager for Microsoft SharePoint automates the deployment of customizations and configurations within or across SharePoint farms through an easy-to-use management console.

Deployment Manager plays a crucial role in ensuring a successful SharePoint deployment by offering simplified management and automation of release operations to promote content, customizations, and design elements throughout SharePoint environments.

All Microsoft, All the Way

As with all AvePoint software, DocAve Deployment Manager utilizes only fully supported Microsoft methodologies and APIs.

Business Case for SharePoint Deployment

Business Advantages for Microsoft SharePoint Deployment Management

  • Improve IT efficiency by automating and simplifying repetitive, time-consuming SharePoint deployment customization processes, including solutions, design elements, and WFE customizations. Easily compare environments to identify elements for propagation, and implement changes via highly intuitive wizards and familiar ribbon-based controls, allowing skilled resources to focus on more strategic, higher-value activities.

  • Ensure that every SharePoint farm within the development and staging phases is an exact clone of the other so complex system changes can be systematically and accurately propagated from development through to staging and production, resulting in a consistent and reliable production system.

  • Automation results in faster deployment, and minimizes the number of possible errors. Mitigate the risks involved in deploying SharePoint solutions and customizations, and reduce any service disruption by eliminating the possibility of breakage caused by poorly executed upgrades or change propagation.
