    WOBURN, Mass., Sept. 23 /CNW/ -- Axceler, the global leader in
administration software for collaborative platforms, today announced
ControlPoint 2, the next major release of one of the fastest growing
administration tools for Microsoft SharePoint. ControlPoint 2 tightly
integrates permissions management and usage analysis with the powerful ability
to make critical changes immediately. In addition, ControlPoint 2 includes
streamlined navigation, detailed trend analysis, a vastly improved interface,
and new capabilities that allow you to ensure consistent appearance and
behavior across your entire farm.
    "Axceler did a great job of building on SharePoint to create a very
powerful tool for exploring, analyzing, and taking administrative actions in a
variety of SharePoint contexts. Axceler also has extensive experience in the
Notes/Domino market so they are very familiar with real-world
collaboration/content management administration modus operandi and challenges,

fundamental ways from which all enterprise SharePoint administrators could
    Using ControlPoint 2, you gain a better understanding of exactly what is
happening in your SharePoint environment, whether you are looking for trends
across your farm, across Web applications, within site collections, or just at
the site level.  ControlPoint 2 gives you detailed information so you can now
analyze historical data as well as real-time information, vastly improving
your management visibility. ControlPoint 2 lets you drill into user and
document activity so you can monitor what documents are being accessed the
most and who is accessing them.
    Analysis and search results are now tightly integrated with actions,
making it easier to identify problems and act on them immediately.  Typical
actions include setting, duplicating or deleting permissions, setting site
properties, deleting sites, or adding users to a group. ControlPoint 2 also
has a new interface so you can collect better information and navigate quickly
throughout farms.  New controls make it significantly easier to use and
include right-click, drag and drop, multiple selections, collapsible sections
and context menus.
    "With this release, Axceler demonstrates our growing momentum in the
SharePoint marketplace," said Axceler President Michael Alden.  "Our goal is
to provide customers with extensive visibility and insight into their
SharePoint environments and give them the ability to make changes easily."
