SharePoint Solutions has released SharePoint Site Provisioning and Governance Assistant (SPGA) for SharePoint 2010, an add-on which allows administrators to control the creation, provisioning and approval of SharePoint 2010 sites while enabling users to select the type of site they need and empowering them to do the actual work. SPGA tames the “site-creation monster” by making it possible to create and provision multiple sites through a single request.

Users are happy because their requests are handled quickly and efficiently, and administrators are happy because order is maintained and chaos is eliminated.

SharePoint Solutions has released SharePoint Site Provisioning and Governance Assistant (SPGA) for SharePoint 2010, an add-on which allows administrators to control the creation, provisioning and approval of SharePoint 2010 sites, while enabling users to select the type of site they need and empowering them to do the actual work. Multiple sites may be created and provisioned through a single request.

In many organizations, SharePoint sites spring up like weeds and quickly get out of control. SPGA is especially helpful for companies and organizations that regularly provision SharePoint 2010 sites and need an easy way to empower users to create sites while ensuring that the organization’s SharePoint 2010 taxonomy, governance and other standards are adhered to, as well as a way to automate the approval of those sites.

“SharePoint Site Provisioning and Governance Assistant for SharePoint 2010 is the perfect solution for taming the ‘site-creation monster.’ Users are happy because their requests are handled quickly and efficiently, and administrators are happy because order is maintained and chaos is eliminated,” said Jeff Cate, president of SharePoint Solutions.

With SPGA, administrators set all the boundaries on the front end, including workflow for approvals. Then, when a user fills out the site request form, he or she sets into motion an automated set of processes that quickly and automatically approve, create and provision the site. Company standards and site uniformity are maintained because they are “baked” into the profile in advance.

As both a site-provisioning tool and a governance tool, SPGA allows IT professionals to:

  •     Maintain the integrity of an organization’s SharePoint 2010 taxonomy
  •     Enforce governance policies
  •     “Bake” exactly what is wanted into SharePoint 2010 site request profiles
  •     Provide users with an easy way to request SharePoint sites or groups of sites
  •     Specify different site request profiles for different sites or groups of sites
  •     Automate an organization's approval process for requesting new SharePoint sites
  •     Monitor and track site requests
