Business Case for SharePoint Migration

Business Advantages for SharePoint Migration

  • DocAve SharePoint Migrator automatically moves content from source SharePoint 2001/2003/2007/2010 instances to their mapped elements in SharePoint 2013, 2010 and SharePoint Online. Information critical to the business is kept intact during the transfer. All folder structures, document properties, and associated metadata, as well as permissions and access control are retained with full fidelity. End-users can confidently continue to access their content without interruption.

  • No special hardware required – job configuration can be easily performed from a single Web-based user interface. Administrators can easily schedule multiple migration jobs and monitor job progress.

  • Organizations have the option to perform a backup or live migration. Those choosing the backup migration option can reuse existing backups of their SharePoint environments to upgrade to a newer version of SharePoint. Administrators will not have to recreate their source content selection, minimizing the effort required for migration, resulting in improved IT productivity.

  • With a SharePoint backup migration, organizations can rest assured that a migration task is performed to satisfy even the most stringent requirements. In the event that scheduled jobs do not meet its needs, an organization can easily rollback to its existing SharePoint product environment without missing a step. This gives administrators the opportunity to reassess the migration process to ensure a properly executed task with minimal error.

  • Migrate an entire instance, folder, or just an individual content item. Reorganize or create new folders upon migration to clean up existing clutter. Granular or bulk content migration and customizable job scheduling allow administrators to plan migration jobs according to business needs and timetables, reducing the impact on functioning production environments.
