The SharePoint field was strong, but one product prevailed in the Best of Connections judging and awards process for SharePoint solutions. That product was Axceler's ControlPoint solution.

"Axceler ControlPoint fills a gap in enterprise SharePoint management. It simplifies every aspect of SharePoint administration, from document permission to Office 365 support. The product provides a smooth administrative surface for SharePoint’s rough edges," said Windows IT Pro executive editor Amy Eisenberg, who oversaw the team of editors judging the category.
