The AvePoint Solution
When AdaptivEdge discovered the missing SharePoint site permissions during the migration with BitTitan, they turned to AvePoint. AvePoint’s server-based migration tool, Fly Server, had already been part of the provider’s migration repertoire, and they recently adopted the SaaS-based migration tool, Fly. They were able to layer Fly on top of the other tool and successfully migrate the necessary permissions.
“When we saw the strength of the solutions and how many sources they could handle, it was a no-brainer to standardize to AvePoint,” Steve says. “While all customers’ needs are very different, Fly can handle it all.”
The AvePoint Fly Migrators deliver a three-step approach – via a self-guided tool or with help from AvePoint – to migrate on-premises or cloud-hosted mail, content, and collaboration into Microsoft 365 or SharePoint. Data can be migrated from existing Microsoft 365 workspaces or from SaaS providers such as Google Workspace, Box, DropBox, and Slack.
AdaptivEdge has previously used Fly Server for “every situation you can think of,” from small migrations on the cloud to larger, complex migrations requiring multiple servers. Some customers have compliance requirements, others are looking for speed, and still others need to move to more restrictive environments, such as GCC High. No matter the situations, “all deployment options are awesome,” says Steve.
Another big selling point: AvePoint’s customer support. While previous providers lacked timely support, the AvePoint team has been proactive, responsive, and collaborative, involving AdaptivEdge in the future direction of products and partner training and enablement.
Now that the IT consultants have standardized to the AvePoint Fly Migrators, their team is able to deliver better results. “We are no longer mediocre at five tools, but really good at one,” Steve says. “This results in more profitable projects because there are fewer mistakes, less impact to the customer, and faster migrations.”
