  • Decision 1: Do we use a migration tool or migration tooling to support the migration? First off this is the absolute easiest decision in the migration process. Unless you have very little content, and you absolutely don’t care about metadata (like originating author, or created date etc.) then you will use a migration tool at some point. The only ways to natively migrate at this point in time are via mapped network drives or the explorer interface.   You may offset the migration tool costs if you are migrating from previous versions of SharePoint by using the supported Microsoft upgrade path, or you might offset costs on migrating content from another source system using lower cost methods, but you always use a tool to help in the migration process (trust me it’s worth it). If you are in an extremely unlucky scenario where there is no product offering that supports migration from your source system – then you will need to build migration tooling yourself. 
  • Decision 2: What migration tool(s) do we use? Here is the first difficult decision. It’s important to understand that there are many options available to you depending on the platform you are moving away from, and the platform you are moving to. Often it greatly helps to talk to an experienced expert, or someone who has performed similar migrations. (We actually often perform vendor evaluations and help our clients make these kinds of decisions). For a scenario like moving from a file share to SharePoint we have ‘power user’ migration tools available to us, and we have ‘IT professional’ migration tools available to us. Typically the power user tools are licensed by user and while they support migrating metadata and content from the file shares, they probably don’t support the ability to schedule, or create many paths/jobs for a larger migration. You may even use both for select cases, but often for simpler migration scenarios (or where it’s really being ‘orchestrated’ from one individual) you would leverage a lower cost power user migration tool, and when it’s more complex, distributed, and requires far more input and extensive planning/orchestration you would leverage the IT Professional migration tooling. Regardless of the tool used it always requires up front migration planning (source identification & target/destination identification). Power User Migration Tools * Often licensed by user. * Typically lower cost (if you only need one or two licenses – can easily be under $1000.00 for file share to SharePoint scenarios). * Requires manual ‘orchestration’ or management of the migration. o This means you have to designate the target and source often each time you use the tool. o Note that it still automates the actual migration of content and metadata etc. * Doesn’t support scheduling, scripting, or automated ‘orchestration’ or management of the migration. Examples of File Share to SharePoint Power User Migration Tool Vendors: * ShareGate  * MetavisIT Professional Migration Tools * Often licensed by time period or size/number of content being migrated. * Typically a scaled cost where larger migrations cost more for the tooling, but at a tiered discount rate. * Supports scheduling, scripting, or automating ‘orchestration’ or management of a migration.  * Often includes comparison or reporting/assessments that can accelerate the migration and validation process. Examples of File Share to SharePoint IT Professional Migration Tool Vendors: * AvePoint* Axceler* Idera* Metalogix* Metavis* Quest * Tzunami
  • Evaluating Migration Tools And Vendors Additionally it is important to understand the vendor, their tool, and its capabilities. What follows are some simple starting questions that are important for evaluating any technology. * What version is the product?  * How mature is the product? o How mature is the product’s supporting ecosystem and vendors? * How extensible and customizable is the product? * How user friendly and usable is the product? o How does the product handle exceptions?  o For who is the UI designed? * How difficult is it to manage and administer the product? o How do you update the product? o How complex is the installation and how complex are the dependencies? o Does it support automation? (Can you batch script or automate administrative tasks?) * Who else is using the tool? o What is their experience of the tool like? o Do they have similar needs? * Product Applicability (Based On Product Proof Of Concepts/Demonstrations) * Detailed Price Proposals (Including Estimates for Integration Costs, Support, and Training) o These should also take into account existing investments within your organization.
  • SharePoint Migration Vendor Questions What follows is a list of questions you might ask a Migration vendor when planning your SharePoint migration to determine what capabilities their product possesses.

  • Something like DeliverPoint from Lightning Tools is a good example of a power user driven tool. Where as management suites for Governance like Axceler’s Control Point or AvePoint’s Doc Ave tool are IT Pro driven tools.
  • Nothing new here!
  • A lot of this can seem daunting and I know one of the hardest things is figuring out how to do some of the things I have shown today. If you are interested in further training or assistance please let me know. Based on the number of people who are interested and the areas of interest we can schedule further training sessions to help everyone better use the SharePoint portal.It's our commitment to you that we will continue to hear your feedback and identify the issues. I encourage you to give us feedback during the coming months, and we will continue to deliver more and more functionality, more and more guidance to help you be successful with your application of SharePoint.Thank You for Reading/Listening
