There’s a lot that goes into choosing the SharePoint 2019 adoption strategy that makes the most sense for your business. One of the key decisions you need to make is whether you should opt for an evergreen model or stick with a more traditional migration. Here’s what you need to know:

What It Is:

Keep your legacy content where it is and incorporate/add a SharePoint 2019 environment.

When to Select:

• You have a small amount of legacy content and very few customizations in your current environment.

• You have the ability to manage two separate collaboration environments (or three if you are currently running hybrid).

• Your information architecture is relatively simple, and you are not worried about data silos.

• You don’t have concerns over backing up and migrating data you don’t need.

Best Practice:

• Providing clear direction and direction to users is critical.

• You will want to smooth the side-by-side transition so there isn’t duplicate content in multiple locations.

SharePoint Upgrade/Migration

What It Is:

Traditional migration where you upgrade your content from one environment to the other and then decommission the old environment.

When to Select:

• You want to keep the context and metadata around your data intact.

• You want to manage a single environment and provide a cohesive experience for your users.

• You want to take the opportunity to clean and classify your data prior to moving into the new environment.

• You have sensitive data that needs to be protected and governed.
