AvePoint Online Service Platform Updates
The latest enhancements to the AvePoint Online Services platform offer a more seamless Office 365 management experience for both customers and AvePoint partners:
- Enhanced Integration with Office 365 Objects: Through dynamic object registration, AvePoint Online Services administrators can use a simple rules engine to define criteria-based containers of Office 365 objects – such as “high business impact” Exchange Online mailboxes, OneDrive for Business, and SharePoint Online sites – and assign automated functions including backup plans as well as compliance and archiving rules across all platforms. This creates a more seamless experience when managing and protecting Office 365 technologies with AvePoint solutions.
- New Portal for Managed Service Providers: With the introduction of AvePoint Online Services for Partners, AvePoint partners who provide managed services for Office 365 and Salesforce customers can better manage their clients’ deployments using AvePoint Online Services solutions. The portal provides a single pane of glass for partners to manage all of their customers, alleviating the challenges of multiple logins and strengthening the services provided by AvePoint and its partners.
Individual Product Updates
Along with platform enhancements, AvePoint Online Services solutions for Office 365 and Salesforce have been updated with new features and improvements:
- Office 365 Management: With simpliﬁed Oﬃce 365 administration, content, and security management, DocAve Online enables organizations to efficiently manage their cloud computing operations and proactively respond to evolving business requirements. The latest release of DocAve Online features improved capabilities for archiving and managing SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business add-ins and associated data – including the ability to recover add-ins during site restoration from an archive.
- Office 365 Governance: DocAve Governance Automation Online empowers users with self-service IT resources for provisioning as well as content lifecycle and permissions management. The latest release enables administrators to proactively govern Office 365 external sharing and allows for Yammer groups to be provisioned and embedded within SharePoint Online sites.
- SharePoint Online File Share Presentation: AvePoint File Share Navigator Online removes the barriers to seamless global collaboration by consolidating enterprise-wide access to on-premises file share content via SharePoint Online. The latest release introduces co-authoring for content stored in organizational file shares by allowing multiple users to edit an individual document from within Office Online apps through File Share Navigator Online – avoiding duplication and the need for users to create new local files.
- Salesforce Backup: DocAve Backup for Salesforce protects CRM data with comprehensive, automatic backups and the ability to restore data from an entire platform down to a single record with the click of a button. The latest release of DocAve Backup for Salesforce introduces out-of-place restore, which allows users to restore content to any other Salesforce instance that is connected to the AvePoint Online Services tenant. This can help administrators merge separate Salesforce instances or restore content from a production environment to a sandbox environment to test customizations based on real data.
