SPTransformator Sneak Peek: feature focus farm inventory

2 min read

We’re racing out the starter grid in pole position with the overhauled SPTransformator.

Some might say, SPTransformator can help you speed through Transformation like Sebastian Vettel! And it’s largely down to this next top feature.

In our sixth entry to this blog series, we’ve highlighted the importance of SPTransformator and BDC, but in this installment, we present to you an automated SPTransformator farm inventory.

Feature Highlight: Farm inventory

It’s down to the new SPTransformator farm inventory that we can do the following: view InfoPath forms, map workflows, understand large lists, identify dependencies between artifacts, analyze usage within solutions, and scan for BDC. All this can happen through the click of a button due SPTransformator’s new automated approach to farm inventory.

It’s not only the above features that are analyzed. Once the scan is complete, you are left with a detailed report that includes the status of sites, webs, fields, features, and their activation status – whether they are currently being used or not. The farm inventory begins once the developer installs a light-weight farm scanner to the SharePoint farm. Then, through a click of a button, you can take the first big steps towards your Transformation project goals.

Automatically identifying customization information through a farm inventory can resolve some of the stumbling blocks associated with Transformation. Having to manually go through your SharePoint farm and individually click and find all the information regarding artifacts, lists, etc. can be an arduous process for the developer, and it increases the overall project time and budget for your company.

So, it’s not only incredibly useful for the developer, but it’s essential for the decision maker who is responsible for delivering the project on time and on budget. SPtransformator farm inventory will significantly increase your chances of achieving these business goals. An initial SPTransformator farm inventory may take many hours to complete a full analysis of your SharePoint environment – imagine, how long it would take to undertake this process manually – it’s so much work that it could be considered a separate project entirely.

SPTransformator is free and provides an initial analysis of SharePoint Full-Trust farm solutions. Further actions, like automated assessments and code transformation, can be unlocked by purchasing credits.
