SeeUnity, a company made up of enterprise content integration fankids, has just released Synchronize Express. The tool allows users to shift back and forth from SharePoint to external Enterprise CMS repositories.
Synchronize Express pairs SharePoint folders with their corresponding folders in external repositories (ECM systems, line business apps, file shares, etc.). This connection makes it so that when content is placed in a source folder, it is automatically copied into the corresponding destination folder as well. Moreover, any changes made to files in the source folder will be automatically made in the corresponding destination folder.
Note: Content can be synced from SharePoint out to an ECM system, or from an ECM system out to SharePoint.
This handy tool is designed to improve performance, provider read and write access to duplicated files (while protecting master versions), inspire sharing, and archive and portect SharePoint content as ECM document of record.
Here’s a quick rundown of the features:
- Mapping tools to easily define rules
- Bi-directional content transfer
- Cross folder copying or synchronization
- Inheritable metadata and security
- Conversion to PDF (publishing from ECM to SharePoint)
- Transfers files and folders
- Monitoring tools audit processing
"Synchronize Express delivers a new type of content integration for SharePoint," says Brant Henne, Marketing Director for SeeUnity. "Customers have requested an agile, cost-optimized solution for moving content between SharePoint and external content management systems. Synchronize Express provides this ability – with a product that installs in minutes and requires no specialized user training."
Synchronization is The Business
Synchronization is getting a lot of attention as of late. Google, for example, just announced free recovery and backup for Google Apps, thanks to Synchronous Replication. Like Synchronize Express, the tool works by replicating data, but in this instance every action taken in Google Apps gets stuck into two data centers at once. This way, if there's a data center outage or loss, users won't have to worry about losing data, or even noticing the glitch.
