We moved our SharePoint Intranet to the Cloud!
 

We moved our SharePoint Intranet to the Cloud!

SSW is now running our shiny new intranet on Microsoft Office 365 | SharePoint Online. Previously, we'd been running SharePoint 2016 on premises for our intranet (intranet.ssw.com.au), which in turn had been upgraded from SharePoint 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013. I'm surprised we’d been so slow as most of our other platforms (e.g. TFS, SQL, Azure AD, Exchange, etc.) are now in the cloud, so it's natural our SharePoint intranet has followed the same path.

Our SharePoint Online migration went well, and if we were to do it again today, it would go even smoother. We have good relationships with guys inside Microsoft who helped us sort out a couple of O365 problems, especially with the Search feature on our Root Site.

In the past, we’ve done many migrations for clients, and therefore have compared different enterprise tools available on the market. The best SharePoint migration tool is Sharegate , which is both powerful and easy to use.

How do you do a SharePoint migration?

There’s the hard way, custom PowerShell scripts, for example, but a migration tool is much better. Using the Sharegate migration tool is the quickest way to ensure everything goes smoothly.

No matter the way you want to go, there are some considerations you need to take before thinking about your migration. As always, our recommended steps are in our rules – see Rules to Better SharePoint Migration from 2016 to Online .

Keep reading to learn about the benefits of SharePoint Online, and how we can help you with your migration.
