New Offering Combines Industrys Fastest Upgrade and Migration Speeds with Powerful Content Organization Tools for Improved Knowledge Sharing and Collaboration with SharePoint 2013
Washington, DC November 5, 2012 Metalogix, the leader in providing high-performance content infrastructure software that transforms the way organizations manage terabytes of business content on Microsoft SharePoint, Exchange and Cloud platforms, today announced the availability of Content Matrix 6.0, the most powerful way to upgrade, migrate and continuously organize SharePoint content. Going beyond basic Microsoft upgrade and site organization tools, this solution delivers unprecedented power and speed as well as the flexibility to upgrade to SharePoint 2013 from any previous version of SharePoint (2003, 2007 and 2010). Content Matrix version 6.0 is the evolution of Metalogix Migration Manager - the most widely used SharePoint upgrade technology since first being introduced to the market in 2001.
Organizations are looking for better and faster ways to support and manage the rapid growth of content driven by rich media, web applications, mobile technology and social solutions. Our customers alone are experiencing over 60 percent content growth year-over-year and are struggling with managing and upgrading their SharePoint environments, said Steven Murphy, CEO, Metalogix. Using our decade of experience as the industrys most popular SharePoint migration solution, weve developed Content Matrix 6.0, for directly consolidating all business content into any version of SharePoint including 2013, 2010, 2007 and 2003. With a focus on enhanced functionality, speed and simplicity, we have now made it easier for users to organize, classify and manage their own content so that organizations can streamline knowledge sharing and improve collaboration.
Content Matrix 6.0 is built to simplify an organizations content experience. SharePoint architects and administrators can easily and quickly upgrade from any version of SharePoint to SharePoint 2013. They can also migrate file shares and documents from legacy enterprise content management (ECM) systems and keep SharePoint content organized in a high fidelity and ongoing basis. Further, content owners have more control over content directly from the SharePoint user interface.
The reorganization function of Metalogix Content Matrix has made a world of difference for us. We can move hundreds of files from place to place by putting them in a queue and letting Content Matrix do the work. What used to take us half a day to complete is now done within 30 minutes, said Claire Edgson, Group IT Manager, Chalcroft Ltd. Two of our pro users, who are in charge of moving large amounts of content, have absolutely loved Metalogix Content Matrix. Youre not sitting there watching the files copy individually while the systems grind to a halt. The solution swiftly re-organizes the content and end-users dont know its going on. For us, its been absolute gold.
With Content Matrix 6.0, users can:
- Upgrade to SharePoint from any previous version (2003, 2007 and 2010

Content Matrix 6.0 rapidly consolidates all business content into SharePoint without losing context and metadata and other relevant attributes such as permissions or information structure. Users are able to easily and effectively connect and move terabytes of content from file shares, websites, blogs & wikis, legacy enterprise content management platforms and Google Docs.
- Keep SharePoint Organized
As business needs evolve, projects change and departments reorganize, an enterprises initial organized site structure and information architecture can unravel and cause user confusion and errors. Using the powerful content organization capabilities available in Content Matrix 6.0, users can keep SharePoint site structures in sync in any dynamic business environment.
