Do You Agree with Windows IT Pro Editors' Best Award Winners in the SharePoint Category?

Written by Inna Gordin. Posted in Editors' Thoughts

Every year Windows IT Pro Magazine’s Editors validate products and services worthy of their Editors’ Best and, based on their readers votes, Community Choice awards. For the Community Choice awards the editorial team asks the community to nominate their favorite products and then release a voting survey to let everyone participate in the final voting phase.  Fair enough. Certainly, we trust the professional opinion of Windows IT Pro Editors, but here is your chance to share your opinion with the SharePoint Reviews readers as well.

There are 29 award categories, and below are the winners in the SharePoint category.  Sometimes editors and readers agree on favorite products, but most of the time they don’t.  Regardless of whether the winners were chosen by editors or readers, all these products are worth serious consideration to help you manage and improve your SharePoint deployment. Do you agree with Windows IT Pro Editors? Would you nominate anyone else?.

Editors' Best Awards

GOLD: ControlPoint by Axceler
Here is what one of SharePoint Reviews’ readers wrote: “For any middle to large sized organization … this is the SharePoint Management console you have been waiting for. It really does do the lot and lets you really take control and be a SharePoint Big Brother….On its own the permission settings get my vote, but there is much much more. Like the ability to change the logo on all the sites from just one place. So the next time those clever marketing guys say we have just redesigned the company logo to change the shade of green you can make the change on all of the sites in under a minute. The more you look into ControlPoint, the more you realize just what you have been missing and I don't just mean the lovely graphs. This is one SharePoint application I would happily recommend.” – Andy Dale

SILVER: Security Suite for SharePoint by TITUS
Here is what one of SharePoint Reviews’ readers wrote: “We were in a situation where we were migrating a legacy application over to SharePoint, but the documents could be targeted to one or more of 400 different security groups. With over 7000 documents and 400 security groups needed, security management using standard sharepoint would be impossible. This software enabled us to program the rules, load in the documents, and then allow the users to simply set the current metadata, which allowed us to successfully use SharePoint! Dealing with Titus was amazing as well, they were able to quickly help with any issues that arose, as well as introduce new features into the software.” -

BRONZE: Longitude Search for SharePoint and FAST by BA Insight
Here is what one of SharePoint Reviews’ readers wrote: “Excellet Product, Excellent Service!! We ran two development environment setups and a pilot which is becoming production. The product displays nice silverlight previews with searched for tags and properties highlighted. Full views give details like hit count per page, and there are enhanced features right off of the preview - like sending the document to someone. Our company will just be scratching the surface as we propagate this throughout, but the immediate visual information from the previews is compelling.” - Andreas Bendl
