By selecting AvePoint’s DocAve Software platform, Atea
could prioritize increasing SharePoint flexibility for its end users.
DocAve Software—the enterprise-class infrastructure management platform
for SharePoint—helps organizations use SharePoint in a more sustainable,
secure, and productive way. "Compared to other solutions on the market,
DocAve offered more flexibility for end users and provided the
migration tools that our business needed," said Henrik Arndt, Group CIO,
and Anne-Marie Mikkelsen, SharePoint Business Consultant. "The service
level quality to support Atea’s users has dramatically increased.”
specifically, with DocAve Backup and Restore Atea can back up its
intranet and workspaces to the company server more efficiently than with
native functionalities. Full backups of SharePoint on premises and
SharePoint Online are performed weekly, and if an item is lost or
accidentally deleted, Atea can restore it within 20 minutes. Before, it
would have taken 2 hours to identify and restore the item—resulting in a
60% time saving.
Ensuring data management practices
are compliant was also a critical goal. The General Data Protection
Regulation (GDPR) will go into effect on May 25, 2018, at which time
organizations in non-compliance will face heavy fines. For the company
to align with these requirements, Atea needs to track user permissions.
Thankfully, with DocAve Content Manager and DocAve Report Center, Atea
can move, copy, and restructure business data across SharePoint
environments, as well as ensure new content is properly managed by
tracking permissions. Doing so helps verify Atea’s GDPR compliance. For more on GDPR, check out AvePoint's resources here.
Migrator also allowed Atea to streamline the process of moving sites
and site collections between SharePoint 2010 and 2013, as well as to
Office 365. “Because we have a hybrid SharePoint environment, the
ability to migrate sites to another platform in a different structure
with DocAve is amazing. The flexibility of the tool has been a very
positive feature,” said Arndt and Mikkelsen.
