Axceler, a provider of administration software for Microsoft SharePoint, acquired echoTechnology, a company that provides SharePoint migration services. The deal was made with an eye toward providing customers with both administration and migration services, two important considerations as the market moves toward SharePoint 2010. Terms of the sale were not disclosed, as both companies are privately held.
Axceler also announced the upcoming release of ControlPoint 4.0, the latest edition of its SharePoint administration service. ControlPoint 4.0 is compatible with both SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010. The new version includes permissions management, activity and storage analysis and the ability to measure performance of SharePoint environments against governance policies.
ControlPoint 4.0 is slated to become available by the end of June.
