With the popularity of Microsoft's SharePoint, it's no wonder such a long list of Microsoft partners selling products and services based on SharePoint will attend next week's SharePoint Conference 2011 in Anaheim, Calif. As I write fairly often about enterprise collaboration, intranets and other topics relevant to SharePoint, some of those partners have been filling my inbox with announcements they'll make at this event.
One of the primary caveats about SharePoint is the unchecked proliferation of content that often occurs. Here are two announcements about products designed to address problems resulting from overabundant content :
Metalogix Software's latest update, Migration Manager for SharePoint 5.0, is designed to help organizations eliminate -- or at least better organize -- superfluous content with its proprietary "shallow copy" technology that makes it unnecessary to copy data such as document libraries or list attachments during migrations from one version of SharePoint to another. When combined with Metalogix's StoragePoint 3.2, content is cataloged before executing a migration job and an improved File Share Librarian feature supports multiple mappings of file share content per site collection.
