SharePoint Content Audit

Our first step is making a detailed inventory of the content you want to migrate. With this information we’ll be able assess the complexity of your migration. Your SharePoint content audit will identify migration pain points and show the best way to proceed.
After the audit you’ll receive a report of our findings with recommendations for the ideal migration approach.

The areas we typically audit include:

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

SharePoint Migration Assessment

In this phase we assess your requirements to define the structure of your new SharePoint platform. 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 your stakeholders 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, we 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 depend on your current platform and the destination. For more complex migrations, we will use a testing phase to iron out any issues along the way.

Iterative testing: we perform a series of test migrations with representative samples of content, resolving issues as they arise.

SharePoint rebuild: we rebuild or adjust any migrated elements that are not supported in the destination platform.

SharePoint migrations (which Microsoft calls “upgrades”) come in three forms: in-place upgrade, database attach upgrade, and third-party migration.

Third-party migration tools have the advantage of allowing migrations directly from a legacy SharePoint version to a modern one. Our experienced Metalogix consultants can help you use this leading SharePoint migration tool to maximum advantage.
