As a Microsoft partner and technology company, France’s vNext has made extensive use of SharePoint as its enterprise portal since 2008. In addition to document management, the platform is used to not only facilitate collaboration amongst its 75 employees, but also external users as well. Previously using an on-premises deployment of SharePoint 2010, vNext decided to migrate to Office 365 – SharePoint Online after the platform was released. Among other reasons, moving its business data to the cloud would allow the company to reduce infrastructure costs as well as enable better security and uptime in the face on any potential disasters.
Since SharePoint’s native functionality could not migrate the company’s business data with full fidelity, vNext chose to utilize DocAve Migrator for its SharePoint Online migration to ensure no information was lost in the process. In order to manage its content in the cloud, the company also implemented DocAve Online – part of AvePoint Online Services. With DocAve Migrator and DocAve Online, vNext was able to:
- Migrate 400 site collections with 200 gigabytes (GB) of data directly from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint Online, saving time and requiring only 10 days of work for administrators
- Enable business continuity on the new platform by migrating all data with full fidelity, including version history and all associated metadata
- Implement a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution to manage, protect, restructure, synchronize, and report on Office 365 environment more efficiently
