AvePoint just published a brand-new case study with the City of Bloomington, located in the heart of Central Illinois – approximately 125 miles southwest of Chicago – and with a population of approximately 76,700.
A Microsoft SharePoint customer for more than a decade, the City of Bloomington wanted to migrate to SharePoint 2010 in order to take advantage of its tighter integration with SharePoint Designer and Microsoft Visual Studio, as well as easier permissions management for end-users.
The City of Bloomington’s biggest challenge was migrating its data with full fidelity – meaning retaining all metadata – to the new platform in order to meet regulatory compliance obligations. After investigating native SharePoint upgrade methods as well as other third-party software solution vendors, Craig McBeath, Webmaster at City of Bloomington, decided to use AvePoint’s DocAve Migrator.
With DocAve Migrator, City of Bloomington was able to:
• Migrated approximately one gigabyte (GB) of data with full fidelity, retaining all metadata as required
• Completed migration in one business day, four days sooner than expected, saving 80 percent of time originally allotted to carry out migration
• Performed a live migration with drag-and-drop simplicity, easily migrating all new data created after initial jobs took place
