SharePoint content audit

Our first step is to make a detailed inventory of everything you have in your SharePoint farm. With this information we’ll be able to make better estimates about the complexity of your migration. That allows us to perform the migration within your agreed deadlines. Your SharePoint content audit will identify migration pain points and show the best way to proceed. Typical areas we cover are:

That allows us to perform the migration within your agreed deadlines. Your SharePoint content audit will identify migration pain points and show the best way to proceed. Typical areas we cover are:

  • Custom solutions
  • Workflows
  • Content types
  • Site columns
  • Permissions
  • User alerts
  • Users and groups used
  • Large lists or libraries
  • UI customisations
  • Branding

At the end of the audit you will receive a document detailing the findings and recommending the ideal approach.

SharePoint migration assessment

In this phase we assess your requirements to define the structure and aesthetic of your new SharePoint solution. In collaboration with your content owners, we will organise workshops, create mockups, and provide training and governance advice.

In this phase we assess your requirements to define the structure and aesthetic of your new SharePoint solution. In collaboration with your content owners, we will organise workshops, create mockups, and provide training and governance advice.

  • Workshops: as well as laying out the post-migration structure, we will also identify UX issues that can be quickly improved.
  • Mockups: if a re-brand is in question, then we will offer a choice of mockups for you to evaluate.
  • Training: educating users in the new system is vital for ROI, which is why we offer optional SharePoint training.
  • Governance: by establishing new roles and planning how content maintenance will be carried out, you ensure long-term value.

SharePoint solution build

At this point you will see your new SharePoint farm being installed, configured, and optimised. Because feedback is important at every stage, there is the option to view a proof-of-concept created with your branding and a specimen of your content. This will give your users a chance to visualise the final product and raise any concerns.

SharePoint migration testing

The best SharePoint migration method will vary depending on your current platform and your chosen destination. For more complex migrations, we will use a testing phase to iron out any issues that may be encountered on the way.

  • Iterative testing: we perform a series of test migrations with representative samples of content, resolving issues as they arise.
  • SharePoint rebuild: any elements that are not supported in the destination will be rebuilt or altered.

Final SharePoint migration

SharePoint migrations (which Microsoft calls “upgrades”) come in three forms: in-place upgrade, database attach upgrade, and third-party migration. If you are moving from a legacy SharePoint version to a modern one, then a third-party migration tool is the fastest option. Otherwise you will have to hop to an intermediary version before reaching the final destination. If third-party tools are your choice, then you can rely on our experienced Metalogix consultantsto harness this migration technology.
