MICROSOFT IGNITE — Metalogix, the provider of unified management software, is offering partners a new SaaS platform to help customers manage content across various collaboration platforms.

Metalogix's Trevor HellebuyckThe new offering, Content.ly, is a set of cloud applications that allow a user to perform life-cycle management of data spread across platforms like Office 365, Slack, Dropbox and Salesforce.

The company said there is a growing need for a way to manage and unify the vast number collaboration, storage and file synchronization platforms businesses use.

“Across the average enterprise, content is constantly in motion [among] users, platforms and devices — rarely with any level of standardization on a single ECM, collaboration, or file sync-and-share platform,” said Trevor Hellebuyck, chief technology officer, Metalogix. “Content.ly is a SaaS offering that enables businesses, specifically IT organizations, to regain control of these platforms and ensure they have the same management, monitoring and governance over the entire collaboration ecosystem that they have deployed across their on-premise[s] platforms.”{ad}

CEO Ben Levitan called the SaaS offering a natural extension of Metalogix’s core business and its “journey” from the beginning of enterprise collaboration.

“Throughout that journey we’ve developed a leading position in delivering solutions that manage and protect SharePoint and Office 365 content; now, these environments sit at the heart of a much more complex collaboration ecosystem, an ecosystem that needs managing and protecting in just the same way,” he said.

Levitan said channel partners will play a special role in delivering Content.ly.

“Metalogix Content.ly is designed from the outset for our partners, particularly those that are investing to become trusted Microsoft Cloud Service Providers,” he said. “Content.ly will enable them with a suite of cloud services that accelerate the development and creation of customized offerings. With its wide variety of connectors, this will expand a partners’ reach into other platform ecosystems.”

The aspects of life-cycle management provided by Content.ly include, migration, synchronization, backup, permission control, archiving and suspicious user activity detection.
