Want to compare differences among SharePoint 2003, 2007 and 2010 sites? MetaVis has added that capability to its Architect Suite.

The new feature, called Live Compare, lets users pinpoint differences in content, information architecture, security groups and permissions, and it verifies that all content and site objects have been copied into SharePoint 2010 properly, said the company.

This also helps site organization and governance, said MetaVis CEO Steve Pogrebivsky. “The Live Compare feature turns MetaVis Architect Suite into a powerful compliance and control tool for your SharePoint environment. Comparing taxonomy structures, site content, items, permissions and various other objects is important for migration, change management and replication.”

Live Compare can be used with both hosted and on-premises SharePoint installations.
