Migration Planning Tool Significantly Reduces Risk and Cost in SharePoint Migration Process
Washington, DC – January 16, 2014
– Metalogix today announced the addition of Migration Expert to its best of breed suite of SharePoint solutions. This initial release is free and significantly reduces both risk and cost in the SharePoint migration process by offering a detailed assessment of current SharePoint environments.
Preparing for and conducting a migration from a legacy version of SharePoint to the latest release can cost companies hundreds of thousands of dollars in effort, generate significant business disruption and can take months to complete. Also, SharePoint deployments have matured and become increasingly complex and mission critical, necessitating that administrators obtain a full picture of the risks that lie ahead, and workarounds they may need, before they embark on the migration of business-critical content from legacy SharePoint infrastructures.
Migration Expert mitigates migration risks by analyzing a user’s current SharePoint environment and providing immediate, actionable steps for migrating content onto newer versions of SharePoint including SharePoint 2013 and Office 365. The product is easy to install and simple to use, quickly scanning the SharePoint platform, including Web Applications, Content Databases, Site Collections and Sites against Microsoft recommended thresholds. After the scan is complete, Migration Expert delivers findings against 60 metrics in easy-to-understand PDF reports that can be used by both technical SharePoint professionals and non-technical business audiences.
“Migration Expert is a SharePoint industry game-changer that responds directly to customers’ needs for a better way to migrate SharePoint content. As the migration process from SharePoint environments becomes more complex and mission critical, our customers cannot afford costly mistakes,” said Steven Murphy, CEO, Metalogix. “Migration Expert is a highly-effective, free product that enables SharePoint administrators to see their environment and avoid potential migration issues and unnecessary downtime within their deployments by identifying them in advance, saving time and money in the process. Migration Expert helps our customers protect their critical business content as they effectively manage their SharePoint infrastructure.”
Metalogix customers are quickly realizing the value of Migration Expert to their business. Sean Bordner, CEO, SharePointAMS.com said, “Our customers trust us with upgrading critical solutions. Migration Expert by Metalogix has already proven to be the first go-to tool.”
