Built-in Operational Governance

Empower end users with self-service IT for SharePoint or hybrid Office 365 provisioning, management, and lifecycle operations. Transcend rigid provisioning or security solutions with user-driven services for sites, Groups, and security to automatically apply governance policies.

Empower Users

Self-service with control. Grant users access to whatever they need, based on who and where they are.

Secure Collaboration

Provision and recertify collaboration spaces with pre-set policies for classification, ownership, metadata, and access.

Scale IT Resources

Ensure IT works smarter by packaging repetitive tasks into services. Reverse data sprawl with lifecycle automation.

Justify IT Investment

Reporting and auditing lets management review platform usage and provides ROI statistics for resource allocation.


Users can request new workspaces—like Sites or Groups —through a self-service catalogue. Proactively apply access, classification, and retention policies upon creation.


Periodically recertify content ownership and classification to maintain accountability and validate relevance. Users can keep and update permissions with limited IT intervention.


Ensure required or relevant content is kept, and archive or get rid of the rest. Reduce risk and improve data quality to improve search results and user satisfaction.

Governance Automation Interface for SharePoint and Office 365

A policy you can enforce

With Governance Automation, implement an extensible and easily scalable governance framework for your most common IT operations—to ensure your policies are implemented, and remain intact.

Flexible approval

Zero-to-three stage approval processes mean you get the level of IT and management involvement required for services

Ongoing recertification

Keep policies intact for life of sites and users with automated recertification, to validate permissions and metadata

Clean house

Content owners, or a lack of activity can trigger lifecycle actions to record or dispose of content

Track resources

Quickly understand who is requesting what, and why, with full auditing and reporting over services and activity

It’s automatic

Monitor and enforce configuration settings, membership and ownership. Delete, revert or notify of unauthorized changes.

Policy transparency

Show associated site information like contact, lease, and available services on homepages and service level indicators

Easy on your users

Access to service catalogues from SharePoint or Office 365. We integrate with native controls so users requesting access to a site natively, for instance, can be redirected to your service.

Easier on IT

Delegate approvals to business owners and create reusable services, so IT can save time previously spent on basic requests. Integrate with other service and workflow systems for end-to-end automation.

On Prem or in the Cloud

Governance automation can be hosted on your on-premises SharePoint servers, or in Azure to support hybrid deployments.
