Metalogix Software, a provider of content life cycle management solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, Exchange and Cloud platforms, has released Metalogix Content Manager for SharePoint. The new solution improves usability and productivity of SharePoint adoption by making content easier to find and organize.

There has been more content developed and stored in SharePoint in the past year than in the previous five years combined as adoption has grown to more than 135 million licenses. A recent IDC Group report found that the amount of digital content created doubles every two years and currently stands at more than 1.8 zetabytes, and is expected to reach 35 zetabytes by 2020. Because more than 85 percent of organizations have already chosen SharePoint as their enterprise content management platform, Metalogix is focused on improving the use and performance of SharePoint with solutions that can intuitively manage more content with reduced storage and human capital.

With Content Manager for SharePoint, Metalogix delivers the foundation of a content management suite that employs a ribbon-based solution for administrators and end users. Using it, organizations can increase adoption and make content easier to find through intuitive bulk classification and metadata tagging of batches of existing content or files being uploaded via standard SharePoint interfaces. Content Manager for SharePoint helps organizations take advantage of advanced SharePoint 2010 features, such as taxonomy and term stores, to ensure content is classified and easy to find via search.

To maximize productivity, end users need to quickly find and manage their content in SharePoint, but the out-of-the-box functionality does not provide for simple functions such as applying metadata across multiple items to simplify search or reorganize content due to changing business needs. With Content Manager for SharePoint, organizations can continually manage business-critical content and thus improve use of SharePoint 2010. Enterprises with rapidly expanding SharePoint environments can leverage Content Manager for SharePoint to help drive all aspects of the content life cycle, including retention policies, security, and storage requirements.
