New AvePoint Online Services Release Enhances Microsoft Office 365 Content and User Lifecycle Management

Latest AvePoint Online Services release features a new Site Lifecycle Timeline, ownership continuity enforcement, and Yammer integration

Jersey City, New Jersey — June 23, 2016 — AvePoint, the Microsoft Cloud expert, today announced the general availability of the latest release of AvePoint Online Services, AvePoint’s 100 percent Microsoft Azure-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform for Office 365. This release of AvePoint Online Services provides substantial enhancements for DocAve Governance Automation Online, enabling organizations to enforce a full spectrum of Office 365 governance policies related to the content and user lifecycle.

By providing end-users with an intuitive service catalog of all available resources, DocAve Governance Automation Online resolves ambiguity around requesting resources from IT and encourages adoption throughout the content lifecycle. New features include:

Site Lifecycle Timeline: Governance Automation Online is the only end-to-end SaaS governance solution that enables organizations to fully manage SharePoint Online site collections and content throughout their lifecycle. In order to enhance this capability, Governance Automation Online now offers the Site Collection Lifecycle Timeline, which allows administrators to preview their configured lifecycle policy settings and follow the sequence of planned governance activities before committing to changes. Business users will also have access to the Lifecycle Timeline from SharePoint Online to provide a clear view of the governance plan on their site content.

Ownership Continuity Enforcement: Governance Automation Online will scan and check for deactivated site collection contact accounts in Microsoft Azure Active Directory on a schedule set by the administrator. If a deactivated primary account is found, an election process begins to identify a suitable replacement. This ensures ownership continuity as employees exit the organization.

Yammer Integration: As organizations adopt Yammer for enterprise social collaboration, there are frequent governance concerns around the proliferation of Yammer groups and content. With Governance Automation Online, organizations can easily embed a Yammer feed onto sites by automating the provisioning process, replacing a multi-step manual process that needs to be done on each site. Now, administrators can drive more effective Yammer use through integration with a governed site collection provisioning process.

“With the increased adoption of the Office 365, organizations are seeking out effective ways to reduce the chaos created by ungoverned content in the cloud,” said George Petrou, Chief Technical Officer, AvePoint. “With the latest release of AvePoint Online Services, administrators can drive operational efficiency through automation and business users can continue to work where and when they need to with faster, simplified approval processes.”

The latest release of AvePoint Online Services is generally available today, June 23, 2016. For more information on the platform and product features, please visit our website.
