Anyway, it's a complete solution providing customers with the ability to develop, test, deploy and manage global branch networks that rely on Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.The echo (who shrewdly keep their name lower case, you know, for the hip crowd) suite for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 consists of nine echo Managers along with additional bells and whistles that let you migrate and manage change on the SharePoint platform through the entire life-cycle. “Our customers are serious adopters of SharePoint as their ECM platform within their organizations, not only departmentally, but on a global scale. They come to us seeking high quality software that delivers super productive change management and deployment features on that platform”, said Garry Smith, President of echoTechnology. The nine echo Managers that comprise echo for SharePoint suite are integrated to allow administrators to replicate content, changes, and settings to multiple site collections and farms across development, letting them rapidly test, deploy and safely make changes to SharePoint anywhere on their network. Here's a quick breakdown on the nine managers: # The echo Content Manager allows content to be easily loaded to document libraries and SharePoint lists from Microsoft Office SharePoint 2003, File Shares and Lotus Notes. It also lets administrators tag any content and deliver effective search using SharePoint. # The echo Site Manager allows administrators to replicate site settings and permissions settings to multiple sites collections and farms. # The echo Workflow Manager facilitates the replication of .Net, Nintex and out of the box workflows to multiple sites, collections and farms. # The echo Web Part Manager allows for the replication of web parts from a single source to multiple destinations, replacement of existing web parts and, also, removal of web parts from multiple destinations. # The echo List Manager enables the replication of list design changes and list items from a source list to multiple site collections and farms. # The echo Features Manager lets SharePoint administrators activate or deactivate features at the site collection or site/web scope. # The echo MasterPage Manager deploys and replicates master pages and master page layouts anywhere in a SharePoint deployment. # The echo Reports Manager simplifies security reporting on the SharePoint platform. Okay, so we only counted eight. Maybe one of these counts for two. Who knows?! And with their mighty powers combined, these managers form echo for SharePoint 2007 and do their best to increase the value of Office SharePoint Server 2007, lowering the risk and cost of managing SharePoint throughout the application lifecycle.
