SharePoint is spreading quickly, mainly driven by user enthusiasts rather than IT.
At some point, IT is told to get involved; for example, to provide backups or ensure compliance with policies and regulations.
At that point, IT has to identify all the different workspaces and their users. That’s not easy. Quest recently launched a useful tool in this regard, Discovery Wizard for SharePoint.
This is a free download, and the main features are:
- Search all servers, site collections, and sites to identify SharePoint workspaces
- Browse SharePoint sites
- Collect information and report on SharePoint sites
