SPGA gives users and administrators a lot to be happy about, and best of all there is absolutely no cost to them.

Nashville, TN (PRWEB) June 21, 2014

PremierPoint Solutions will host a free one-hour webinar June 25 at 11 a.m. EDT titled “Introducing a Free Solution for Automating the SharePoint Site Collection Creation Process.”

The webinar will explain and demonstrate its newly released no-cost edition of Site Provisioning and Governance Assistant (SPGA) for SharePoint.

SPGA is an automated SharePoint self-service site collection creation tool that allows users to create and provision unlimited SharePoint site collections automatically, with all the capabilities and limits the administrator has specified – forever.

SPGA is designed for organizations that need numerous SharePoint site collections created and provisioned on an ongoing basis, and want to ensure that their organization’s SharePoint taxonomy, governance and other standards are adhered to consistently.

While manually creating SharePoint site collections is an option, it can be labor-intensive and tie up valuable IT resources, resulting in a backlog of site collections waiting to be approved and provisioned. The other alternative – letting users create their own site collections – usually results in no clear standards or consistency.

Webinar attendees will learn about a proven, free solution, Site Provisioning and Governance Assistant (SPGA), to the backlog of IT work and strain on resources that typically occur when manually creating and provisioning large numbers of SharePoint site collections.

The webinar hosts are Aaron Wood, manager of commercial software engineering and support for PremierPoint Solutions, and Randy Moody, the company’s customer service manager.

Wood has more than 12 years of experience in information technology, including SharePoint administration, SharePoint development, Microsoft SQL database administration, Windows Server and Linux administration, network administration, C# ASP.NET development, user support, training and project management.

As the webinar will explain, with SGPA the administrator simply “loads” all the appropriate site functionality, settings, security and limitations into “Site Request Profiles.” Uniformity, governance and company standards are strictly enforced, enabling administrators to simply "set it and forget it."

Users then select the appropriate profile for the kind of site collection they need and initiate the automatic approval and site collection creation process.

"SPGA gives users and administrators a lot to be happy about, and best of all there is absolutely no cost to them," Wood said.

SPGA is available for SharePoint 2010 and 2013. Click here to register for the webinar.
