How you organize, classify, tag and share content is critical to how useful it is in your organization. That means your information architecture (IA) needs to be maintained and updated regularly so that your content is well organized, easily searched and productive.
The thing about SharePoint: it doesn't design itself -- you have to. And after the design, you aren't done. You have to manage and maintain your SharePoint Information Architecture and taxonomies on a day to day basis.
Architect for SharePoint can help you accomplish this and much more in record time!

Fortunately we came across a tool (Architect) from MetaVis. The application suite of this product included a “Live Compare” feature. With this we were able to easily select one particular site in the left part of the screen, another site in the right screen, and then select the docbases that we wanted to compare. And then after clicking on the “Go and check the differences” button (it was actually titled “Compare Now”), we could see which documents were in the old location, and were not in the new location, and vice versa. This was great! And compared to manually comparing lists, was sooo much easier. - Mark J Owen, SharePoint enthusiast and blogger, Content Management in the Real World Blog
No Server Install Required: MetaVis Products run on the client side, on a desktop or server, and connect remotely to your SharePoint environment. (Read: The MetaVis Approach to Building Applications for SharePoint)
Easy to Maintain: A client-side design model means you only have to update the application on the machine you have it installed on. MetaVis provides an management environment that alerts you when you log into the application that there are updates, which you can then easily get installed by closing and re-opening the application.
