The 3 Steps of a SharePoint Migration

Migrating to Microsoft SharePoint online is a strategic move that can revolutionise the way your organisation collaborates and manages its data.

Discover

At the very beginning of your SharePoint migration journey, we collaborate closely with you to grasp the initial state of your data, including its size and composition. This initial assessment is of utmost importance as it forms the bedrock for a triumphant migration plan, enabling us to pinpoint vital content and structure your information efficiently as it makes its way to its new abode in SharePoint.

Plan

The planning phase is where visions and goals are transformed into a tangible migration strategy. Through bespoke workshops, we work together to design the blueprint for your new SharePoint environment, ensuring it aligns meticulously with your business objectives.
This intentional planning phase maximises the chances of a successful migration, as we meticulously organise the migration activities to minimise business disruption and establish clear expectations for the project’s trajectory. 

Deliver

The final step, known as the deliver stage, represents the culmination of the migration process. It is at this point that your data is meticulously transitioned from its source to the new SharePoint site.

At Vantage 365, we utilise advanced tooling and meticulously crafted scripts to ensure accurate and efficient data transfer. Throughout this crucial phase, we maintain a steadfast focus on preserving data integrity, securing your information during transit, and providing consistent updates to put your mind at ease.

SharePoint Migration Tool

The free migration tool provided by Microsoft is an invaluable asset for organisations looking for a straightforward path to upgrade their systems. Designed with user convenience in mind, this tool supports seamless migrations from on-premises SharePoint farms and various file systems directly into SharePoint in Microsoft 365.

At Vantage 365, we make full use of this tool mainly for “lift and shift” migrations, where we move content without significant changes. It is also suitable for projects of lower complexity, where a quick, efficient, and cost-effective migration solution is of utmost importance.

ShareGate Logo

ShareGate

ShareGate is a top-notch migration tool that offers an incredible array of audit and discovery tools, along with a robust migration engine that handles most transformation migrations. If we need to tag or add metadata to documents during migration, then ShareGate is our tool of choice. The platform’s user-friendly interface and comprehensive features allow for a more detailed migration approach, empowering us at Vantage 365 to undertake complex migrations with precision.

ShareGate ensures that every aspect of your data is accounted for, adding an extra layer of refinement to the migrated content. It simplifies the process, from detailed reporting to efficiently managing admin permissions, making it an essential resource in our toolbox for ensuring a streamlined migration experience.

LinkTek Logo

LinkFixer

While not a migration tool in the traditional sense, LinkFixer plays a vital role in the post-migration phase of transferring your digital assets to SharePoint. Its patented software is designed to automatically discover and repair broken links in the most common document types, a task that can be tedious if done manually.

As each file is migrated to the new environment, LinkFixer diligently works to maintain link integrity, significantly reducing manual efforts and ensuring that your documents retain their original functionality.At Vantage 365, we seamlessly integrate LinkFixer into our migration process to ensure a smooth transition, making sure that every detail is accounted for, right down to the last hyperlink.

ocrato logo 1024x571 1

Ocrato

Ocrato is an invaluable tool that we use for more efficient migration projects. It provides us with several robust features, including Optical Character Recognition (OCR) capabilities. This allows us to transform image-based documents into searchable text within SharePoint, maximising document findability after migration. Additionally, Ocrato offers file compression services, which are essential when dealing with large volumes.

This tool enables us to reduce the overall data footprint being transferred, thereby speeding up the migration process. Moreover, this results in significant space savings once your content is securely stored within the SharePoint environment. At Vantage 365, incorporating Ocrato into our workflow is a strategic decision that ensures not only a quicker migration but also an optimised utilisation of SharePoint storage after migration.

FAQs

What is the difference between SharePoint and SharePoint Server?

SharePoint and SharePoint Server cater to different hosting preferences. SharePoint, commonly known as SharePoint Online, is a cloud-based service hosted by Microsoft for businesses of all sizes. As part of Microsoft 365, SharePoint Online enables organisations to access and collaborate on files from anywhere with an internet connection. On the other hand, SharePoint Server is an on-premises solution that provides businesses with more control over their SharePoint deployment and management.

While it requires in-house server infrastructure and maintenance, SharePoint Server allows for deeper customisation and is often chosen by organisations with strict data governance or compliance requirements. Both platforms offer collaborative features and enterprise content management, but they differ primarily in their deployment models—cloud versus on-premises.

What is the SPMT tool for SharePoint migration?

The SharePoint Migration Tool (SPMT) is a free, user-friendly application provided by Microsoft that makes it easy-peasy to migrate your files from SharePoint on-premises document libraries or regular file shares to SharePoint Online in Microsoft 365. Designed for simplicity, it lets users migrate their content to the cloud with minimal disruption to their services.

SPMT supports the latest versions of SharePoint and comes highly recommended for organisations that are looking to move to the cloud at their own pace without needing the fancy features of premium migration tools.

How do I automate migration in SharePoint?

To automate migration in SharePoint, users can take advantage of scripting with PowerShell cmdlets, or employ dedicated migration tools like the SharePoint Migration Tool (SPMT), ShareGate, or Metalogix. These tools offer different levels of automation, scheduling features, and bulk content migration capabilities that streamline the process. For example, the SPMT allows you to set up migrations and schedule them to run during off-peak hours to minimise impact on daily operations.

Furthermore, third-party tools may provide more advanced automation features, such as automatic re-linking of files, batch migration settings, and detailed reporting that can be tailored to suit specific requirements. It is recommended to evaluate the size and scope of the migration project to determine the most suitable automation approach for your organisation.

How much does a SharePoint migration project cost?

The cost of a SharePoint migration job can vary significantly depending on several factors. These include the volume of data to be migrated, the complexity of your current content structure and any custom solutions in place, the extent of services required such as planning and post-migration support, as well as the need for any third-party migration tools beyond what’s available for free.

A basic migration might start in the range of a few thousand pounds for a small business, but the costs can escalate quickly for larger enterprises or those with complex needs. It’s best to consult with a SharePoint migration expert, like those at Vantage 365, to get a detailed quote based on your specific requirements.
