Vamosa Launches Trial Migration for SharePoint

30th April 2007

Vamosa, the world leader in content processing, analysis and migration, has launched free content analysis and migration software for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.

The free software combines Vamosa Community Edition and Vamosa developed SharePoint 2007 connector technology.

Vamosa Community Edition was originally released in November 2006 as generic content analysis and migration software downloadable for free from It combines the full functionality of Vamosa's market leading software - Vamosa Content Analyser and Vamosa Content Migrator - into a single product. Since launching last year the product has been used by hundreds of individuals to successfully analyse and migrate up to 1000 pages of content.

The extension of Vamosa Community Edition to include the Microsoft SharePoint 2007 connector allows the SharePoint community to capitalise on the benefits an automated approach to analysis and migration has to offer. Although the software will continue with the limitation of 1000 pages, users can:

  • Gain a detailed understanding of content in the fastest manner possible (up to a maximum of 1000 pages)
  • Improve content quality through the removal of duplicate and out-dated content
  • Enhance content via the application of relevant metadata
  • Reduce the pain involved in migrating content to SharePoint

Rob Gray, Microsoft's Product Marketing Manager for SharePoint Technologies said, "The release of this free software will bring great benefits to the wider SharePoint community. Using Vamosa's automated solutions for content analysis and content migration will allow organisations to very quickly realise the return on their investment, irrespective of whether their existing applications are based on Microsoft technologies"

From 1st - 3rd May Vamosa will be participating in the Internet World exhibition at Earl's Court in London. With a dedicated area on the Microsoft SharePoint pavilion at the exhibition, Vamosa will be distributing copies of Vamosa Community Edition for SharePoint, as well as presenting on 'best practice content migration' to a Microsoft SharePoint 2007 environment.

Vamosa plan to release further editions of Vamosa Community Edition for other leading ECM vendors. Offerings for IBM and Interwoven are due in the near future.
