3.1.contentACCESS Central Administration
contentACCESS is a modular product, with built-in or custom plugins. The built-in plugins are available for on premise Exchange server, Office365, SharePoint and File servers. With these plugins contentACCESS can combine several systems into one archive storage in the cloud or on premise. There are many possibilities to visualize and work with the archived data: use officeGATE (Outlook add-in) to see the data directly in Outlook, use a web browser to see the data using contentWEB, use accessGATE Mobile application to see the data on your smartphones or use accessGATE to interconnect your data with SharePoint.
contentACCESS is software which supports multiple-tenancy. Multi-tenancy is an architecture in which a single instance of a software application serves multiple customers. Each customer is called a tenant. Every tenant of contentACCESS has its own data management processes. This means that every tenant uses its own plugin instances (jobs) and also has its own databases and storages. All these data can be isolated from the data of other tenants. Even if these tenants are isolated from each other, in case of need one or more users with system administrator permission can have the right to manage the processes to more tenants.
Multiple-tenancy might be very useful e.g. for those companies who have more affiliates and would like to build a deeper administration structure for the company as a whole. Each affiliate could become a tenant and could have its own administration. In this case other affiliates would not have a right to manage the processes of another affiliate and everybody could build his own processes in a way he wants. Dividing of tasks and responsibilities could be more transparent and the work would be more effective using this method.
contentACCESS Central Administration is a user interface for administrators, over which they can configure contentACCESS, create new automatically running jobs to process company data, configure these jobs, adjust framework feature settings, set up schedulers, databases, storages, create clusters etc.
