We have come out with a significant major release of our flagship SharePoint document migration tool, DocKIT for SharePoint 2010 / 2007.
DocKIT v4.0 now supports Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 and Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 in addition to its support to the earlier versions of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) and Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services (WSS 3.0).
DocKIT in addition to its support to native SharePoint 2010 environment has come out with the following new features:
- Extended support to Business Connectivity Services: Business Connectivity Services (BCS) is all about keeping the users connected to external databases and other sources of enterprise data (LOB systems). BCS is an evolution of Business Data Catalog (BDC) feature in SharePoint 2007, allowing the users to better integrate external data to the SharePoint portal. DocKIT through its support to BCS / BDC ensures that users can map their existing line of business applications into the SharePoint portal, thereby allowing the users to leverage on integrated information.
- Support to Managed metadata: Managed metadata resembles the ‘Lookup Columns’ of SharePoint 2007. Unlike Look Up columns where it was impossible for the users to share metadata across site collections, Managed metadata is not site specific. Managed metadata has a centralized repository of pre-defined metadata that can be replicated for use throughout the SharePoint environment without having to define them every single time. DocKIT helps users retrieve the metadata values from ‘term sets’ associated with the Managed Metadata column.
- Supports Document Sets: Document sets allow users to bundle related documents and treat them as a single entity. With DocKIT, the users can migrate multiple documents from file repositories and manage them better by assigning metadata to these ‘compound documents’ through an external metadata source.
DocKIT with its support to SharePoint 2010 features such as ‘Ratings Column’ data type, ‘Asset Library’ etc. would help organizations achieve a better collaborative environment by allowing the users to leverage on the extended features of SharePoint 2010.
The interesting information is the latest version of DocKIT supports both SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2007 environment within the same version of the product. This means our DocKIT customers do not have to invest twice (lower TCO) in a SharePoint document migration solution, one for each SharePoint version and can also quickly adapt / transition to the new version using the familiar interface.
