​AvePoint just published a brand new case study with the third largest university in the state of Montana: Montana State University (MSU) Billings. From the University of Florida to Central Michigan University, this is not our first case study with a university. It’s no secret that Microsoft SharePoint is playing an integral role in higher education facilities with its ability to better connect and bolster collaboration between professors, students, and staffers alike. Each school uses SharePoint in unique ways to meet its organizational goals, and, of course, each has its own set of challenges to overcome.

MSU Billings’ main challenge involved migrating from Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 to Microsoft SharePoint 2010. The organization wanted to be on the latest version of the platform and take advantage of its updated features, but Computer System Analyst Kendra Hughes realized that this could be an extremely time-consuming effort using only SharePoint’s native functionality. After a brief investigation, Hughes decided to implement DocAve Migrator.

With DocAve, MSU Billings was able to: · Simplify its migration process with the Live Migration capability, moving content to SharePoint 2010 with drag-and-drop ease and taking less than 15 minutes for each migration job to complete, 97% faster than the eight hours that would have been required without DocAve

· Retain data’s full fidelity upon migration, including all metadata and permissions, easing the transition to the new environment for both administrators and end-users To learn more about how MSU Billings realized SharePoint success with DocAve, read the new case study.
