Enterprise Informatics Inc.'s eB for SharePoint works with MOSS 2007 to identify, classify and manage information stored in SharePoint sites. It helps CIO's define, enforce and prove that governance policies are being followed and sensitive documents and content are secure, controlled and can be trusted.



With Enterprise Informatics Inc.'s eB for SharePoint product, SharePoint administrators can discover, classify and organize SharePoint sites in as many ways as needed to support enterprise information management requirements. It can also automatically classify and assign attributes to a document or empower end users to manually register (identify and classify) the document directly from SharePoint's user interface

Through eB for SharePoint dashboards, admins can produce reports that show all discovered sites, registered and unregistered sites, and registered documents and their status.

  • Pre-defined, ready-to-use information objects provide a rich model for classifying information and establishing relationships between relevant objects, ensuring the integrity of controlled information by uniquely managing its connectivity to all other relevant information.
  • A built-in change management capability that manages information assets and their relevant relationships through an automated best-practice process that identifies the effects of change and manages the workflow for approvals, notifications, releases, distributions and accountability of changes that occur enterprise-wide across multiple SharePoint sites and farms.
  • A powerful, centralized records management capability for registered sites and documents that automates the disposition (i.e., the retention and destruction) and archiving process to adhere to corporate governance policies.
  • The ability to physically store registered information objects in SharePoint libraries, in multiple SharePoint sites, moved to the eB repository or archived to secondary storage.
