Metalogix: SharePoint Content Lifecycle Management

Metalogix provides tools to help IT manage SharePoint content over its lifecycle. The tools import content into SharePoint, archive SharePoint content, and apply retention policies. Today’s offerings are:

  • Professional Archive Manager. Provides archiving for SharePoint, Exchange, and file systems (products acquired from H&S in September 2008).
  • Archiving Express for Sharepoint & Files. Free, full version of the preceding.
  • Site Migration Manager. Migrates older SharePoint sites to newer versions.
  • eRoom Migration Manager. Migrates eRoom data to SharePoint.
  • Stellent Migration Manager. Migrates Stellent (now Oracle Content Server) data to SharePoint.
  • WebSite Migration Manager. A general-purpose tool to migrate ECM or Web content to SharePoint.
  • Selective Restore Manager Pro. Restores individual SharePoint documents and list items from backups without a recovery farm.

The company is privately held. We estimate revenues at $8M annually. It recently raised $40M, some of which was used to acquire H&S’s archiving technology in September 2008.

Comments:

  • Microsoft sees SharePoint as a central location for collaborative information.
  • However, SharePoint is still at a very early stage of development, and has many very rough edges.
  • A third-party ecosystem is consequently evolving. Vendors include AvePoint, Colligo, Metalogix, and Quest.
  • Archiving and backup are areas of pain for today’s SharePoint users.

    We would like to add 17a-4 to the list of companies supporting SharePoint archiving. Our product, ShArc (SharedArchive), allows SharePoint to comply with SEC Rule 17a-4 and other financial archival regulations including audit, legal/ regulatory holds, and support for non-erasable storage. ShArc will archive email, Bloomberg, Blackberry SMS, Microsoft LiveMeeting sessions and SharePoint wiki/blog posts.
