eB for SharePoint directly addresses information integrity, a key issue for CIOs in today's governance and compliance driven times
San Diego (PRWEB) September 8, 2008
Enterprise Informatics today announced the release of eB for SharePoint to support the growing demand for information governance and compliance of information assets that reside in SharePoint sites/farms across the enterprise. Enterprise Informatics is a leading provider of enterprise information management solutions that enable organizations to reduce the cost of meeting compliance requirements, minimize business risk and optimize process efficiency.
eB for SharePoint, in combination with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, enables CIOs and Compliance Officers to define and enforce a SharePoint governance and compliance policy through the identification, classification and management of information stored in SharePoint sites across the enterprise, and to do it in a way that does not compromise the ease-of-use and collaboration that makes Microsoft SharePoint so attractive.
"We are seeing phenomenal adoption of Microsoft SharePoint 2007 to promote information sharing and collaboration across departments, projects and portals to facilitate communication with 3rd party contractors and the public," said Dave Rogers, government strategic advisor, Microsoft Corporation. "SharePoint site governance across the enterprise is becoming a priority for CIOs and information architects from a compliance standpoint. New solutions, like eB for SharePoint, are directly addressing the governance issue by providing enterprise-wide visibility and control of SharePoint sites and information assets − without impacting the ease-of-use of SharePoint."
CIOs and compliance officers need to know what information is being discussed, produced, and shared; whether the information is sensitive, confidential, and secure; whether it is accurate and can be trusted to support business decisions, regulatory compliance, and legal discovery; and whether it should be governed by corporate policy and recorded.
eB for SharePoint enables centralized site provisioning, provides unique information modeling to identify and classify information, establishes relevant information relationships, and manages the information and related items through their lifecycle.
Microsoft Office SharePoint Server Site Governance
eB for SharePoint provides the means to discover, classify and organize SharePoint sites in as many ways as needed to support enterprise use. A SharePoint site architect or administrator can define the information model (structure and organization) and establish site provisioning rules that are compliant with established information governance policy.
Tim Wallis, CEO, Content and Code Ltd., a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, says, "Many of our customers are sharing information assets across multiple servers/sites, departments and projects and require the capability to manage the sites and information enterprise-wide. eB for SharePoint provides a rich set of tools for managing the distributed sites and the interdependent information assets across sites."
Relevance and Change Management lead to "trusted" information
eB for SharePoint provides a powerful information modeling capability that allows organizations to quickly and easily structure and organize their enterprise information assets. eB's predefined, ready-to-use information objects − documents, physical items, people, organizations, locations and projects − provide a rich model for classifying information and establishing relationships between relevant objects.
Utilizing eB for SharePoint it is easy to see who is responsible for information, what the information describes, where it is located (on a single site or multiple sites) and what it is related to.
eB for SharePoint ensures information integrity through a robust, built-in change management function that manages information assets and their relevant relationships through a best practice process that identifies the effects of change and automates the change process of approvals, notifications, releases and distributions for accountability and auditing.
In addition, eB for SharePoint provides a powerful, centralized records management capability for enterprise-wide sites and documents that automate the disposition (retention and destruction) and archiving process in order to adhere to corporate governance and compliance policies.
"eB for SharePoint directly addresses information integrity, a key issue for CIOs in today's governance and compliance driven times," commented Chris Shipley, executive producer of the DEMO Conferences. "CIOs, compliance officers and auditors must provide evidence that information governance policies are being followed and that company sensitive documents and content are secure, controlled and can be trusted."
