Preparing for the Migration

Before we can successfully migrate your SharePoint data, we will need to analyse your environment and get a complete understanding of your existing setup. Preparing for SharePoint migration will also help us determine which migration option would work best for your business. There are three major migration types from which to choose, which are choosing to upgrade your existing SharePoint account, migrate to the cloud, or choose a hybrid setup.

Office 365 SharePoint Migration

Option 1: Upgrading Your Existing SharePoint Account

Depending on your IT infrastructure, you may want to retain your existing SharePoint setup. However, there is a way to enjoy the latest solutions and functions the platform offers without the hassles of a full-blown migration. Simply upgrading your existing SharePoint account to a newer version will allow you to maintain much of your existing setup while benefiting from the latest version of SharePoint. 

A SharePoint upgrade entails moving to the next version of the platform, while an Office 365 SharePoint migration entails moving any version of SharePoint that you have to a new farm and restructuring the deployment. Your choice to upgrade or to complete the Office 365 SharePoint migration depends on several factors.

If you run a legacy, content management or collaboration system and do not want to make use of the cloud, the upgrade or migration option would both be suitable for your business.

If you wish to retain your existing IT infrastructure and environment, it may be best to simply upgrade to the newest version of SharePoint in order to benefit from the latest the platform has to offer while maintaining your existing setup.

If you use the SharePoint On-Premises option, you and your coworkers or employees can benefit from improved user experience and functions on the platform by upgrading to the newest version.

Challenges

Like any migration, an Office 365 SharePoint migration will not be without its challenges, and the first migration options available to businesses has its own unique set of challenges. This is largely because a direct or automated migration is not possible, which is why it is so important to partner with a reliable IT support company that can handle your SharePoint migration from start to finish. 

Once the migration is complete, it may be necessary and advisable to rework some of your setup to make sure that you and other users of SharePoint in your organisation can benefit from the latest features that the platform has to offer. Keep in mind, however, that unless you migrate to the cloud, you will not be able to benefit from all of SharePoint’s new functions.

Option 2: Office 365 SharePoint Migration to the Cloud

SharePoint migration to the cloud allows businesses to take complete advantage of the new functions and capabilities that SharePoint has to offer. If your setup is outdated, moving to the cloud presents the unique opportunity of being able to create an entirely new and improved environment, while utilising all of the latest features SharePoint has on offer. 

By migrating to the cloud, you will be simplifying future IT maintenance, broadening collaboration capabilities, and enabling collaboration with other cloud-based softwares.

The Challenges with Cloud Migration

An Office 365 SharePoint migration to the cloud comes with its own set of challenges. Firstly, the functional differences between what you were using and newer, cloud-based platform functionality can be disconcerting and hard to adapt to. Learning and adopting a new platform with new functions can cause dips in productivity as your team learns to maneuver their way through the new software. Proper training is crucial, and is something that the CRT Network Solutions team can provide!

Similarly, the immense collaboration facilities offered at a cloud-based level may feel overwhelming to your team. Ensure that they know which platforms to use and which to ignore.

Option 3: The Hybrid Office 365 SharePoint Migration

This migration option is ideal for businesses that want to maintain some of their existing IT infrastructure and environment while being able to enjoy the benefits and functions offered by both SharePoint On-Premises and SharePoint Online. This migration option will require careful planning and management from the onset and throughout.

A hybrid Office 365 SharePoint migration offers companies the unique ability to leverage off of both platforms and enjoy the capabilities that both platforms offer simultaneously. For example, an organisation can easily continue to use their On-Premises platform to host large amounts of content while allowing employees to utilise the useful collaboration capabilities of SharePoint Online.

Consider Hybrid Migration

If your organisation is unable to complete an Office 365 SharePoint migration due to compliance or security concerns, a hybrid option may be the best choice. A hybrid option is also ideal for those looking to avoid a complete cloud transformation, which would require you to move all On-Premises content, integrations and customisations and adapt them to the SharePoint Online environment.

Need Office 365 SharePoint Migration?

Regardless of your reason for migrating, or which Office 365 SharePoint migration option you choose, you will need a reliable IT support company that can assist you every step of the way. Careful planning and the right migration management is crucial to ensuring limited down times and maximum productivity once the migration is complete.
