Metalogix Selected by Empact IT for Financial Services Client’s Complex SharePoint Migration

Metalogix Migration Solutions Used to Seamlessly Migrate 600 Sites Within Three Separate Intranet Instances Without Impacting User Productivity

Washington, D.C. – November 8, 2016 – Metalogix, the market-leading provider of solutions to move, manage and protect content within enterprise collaboration platforms, today announced that Empact IT has used Metalogix Migration Solutions to perform a seamless migration for a high-profile financial services client. Using Migration Solutions, Empact IT avoided months of work while migrating 600 sites with zero impact on user productivity.

Empact IT, an Employer Flexible company, specializes in building solutions that support business goals. It builds strategies to help customers utilize their data to define and support what matters and create development tools and services that meet customer requirements.  Empact IT specializes in SharePoint, DotNetNuke, and WordPress for CMS-enabled web sites, builds data warehouse and data integration solutions using the Microsoft stack of technologies (SQL Server, SSIS, SSRS, SSAS), and also builds custom applications to cater to any business need.  

When a long-term financial services client turned to Empact IT to help it to migrate three intranet sites from WSS 3.0 to SharePoint 2013, Empact IT recognized that there were many aspects to the project that would add complexity - including a hosting move, specialized customizations and integrated applications, and implementation of a new server environment, in addition to the actual upgrade and migration effort.

“Our financial services client had a very elaborate environment,” said Alicia Crowder, IM Team Lead, Empact IT. “Because it was a much more complex migration with many customizations in addition to the regular sites with a lot of content, we needed a better tool to help.” After evaluating multiple options, Empact IT selected Metalogix Migration Solutions.

“We could not have completed this task without Metalogix Migration Solutions, and still have been able to extract as much of the metadata as we were able to extract without having to create some sort of custom software solution ourselves,” said Crowder. “That would have likely taken a year to fully conceive, plan, develop, test and deploy.”

Using Metalogix Migration Solutions to automate SharePoint migration processes for its financial services customer, Empact IT was able to streamline migration workflow, ensuring that not only content was migrated, but also permissions and metadata as well. In all, Empact IT migrated more than 600 sites/sub-sites within the organization’s three separate intranet sites. Once the migration was complete, users were switched over in one move to the new SharePoint 2013 environment.

“The most complex SharePoint migrations require a sophisticated solution to assure that all custom lists, forms and designs as well as complex workflows and multiple third party software integrations are all moved without interruption,” said Trevor Hellebuyck, Chief Strategy and Product Officer, Metalogix. “Metalogix Migration Solutions was designed to support the most complex environments. It simplifies the Office 365 adoption process with detailed pre-migration reporting and automates tedious copy/move and backup/restore operations. It also ensures that users, groups and content permissions are all properly set without the need for PowerShell or Excel.”

Metalogix Migration Solutions provides all of the functionality needed to perform complete lifecycle management for Office 365 in a single, unified platform with one installation. From onboarding and day-to-day user and environmental analysis and optimization, to security and backup/restore operations across Office 365 services, Metalogix Migration Solutions reduces administrative workload while ensuring that your environment remains secure and efficient.
