ControlPoint versus DocAve Administrator



DocAve Administrator

Why It Matters

Installation Installing of ControlPoint requires full-trust code deployments into SharePoint and needs a minumum of one IIS reset which will interrupt user use of SharePoint.

Managing multiple farms with ControlPoint requires installation inside each farm, and when the farms have been in different domains, a 2-way trust must be established.

To handle Office 365, you will have to fully stand up a SharePoint on-premises farm to set up ControlPoint.

As DocAve doesn’t need any  full-trust code deployments  to SharePoint, installation and updating of DocAve doesn’t need IIS resets and doesn’t interrupt user activity in SharePoint.

Control over multiple farms or Office 365 is simple to setup and manage from one interface. No trusts have to be established for multi-farm scenarios.

Configurations and settings may be easily re-used across farms without impacting the supply of the SharePoint servers.

Whether you’re on premises, online, or hybrid – nothing comes even close to the simplicity managing all your farms and Office 365 tenants in one place.

Our products were constructed with this principle in your mind, to aid your trip towards the cloud.

Effect on SharePoint farm To permit non-admin users to leverage ControlPoint functionality, a SharePoint Timer Job must be run which crawls through all SharePoint sites on the periodic basis to gather configuration data, group memberships and permissions.

Which means that ControlPoint is competing for SharePoint sources with finish-users and may change up the performance of SharePoint.

DocAve includes a flexible delegation model that does not  require timer jobs or crawls to find out who are able to leverage DocAve functionality. Our concentrate on enterprise scalability has ensured that DocAve is really a low-touch management tool for the SharePoint atmosphere in the setup from the software to using its features. Regardless if you are a multi-farm atmosphere or perhaps a single-server farm, we make certain our software operates behind the curtain.
Extensible policy rules ControlPoint ships having a pre-set listing of actions and settings that policies could be defined, but lacks the power for policies to become produced for actions and settings not provided as they are. Only adding/updating content in lists and libraries could be susceptible to a custom web service rule. DocAve Administrator’s Policy Enforcer includes a fully configurable and extensible policy engine that ships with more than 30 common rule templates. For additional specific policy needs, the guidelines engine is fully extensible allowing people to conceive, create and enforce almost any permission, configuration, or user action rule. We can’t arrange for every scenario – therefore we do our very best to help you get began, then allow you to go ahead and take reigns to tailor our software for your policies – not the other way round.

If you were considering transitioning to AvePoint, there has not been a much better time for you to move.
