Migration

So your organization has decided to migrate to Office 365 and you’ve been tasked with not only moving content, but with making the most of your organization’s investment. Moving across collaboration platforms is nothing new, but an Office 365 migration brings additional pressures and challenges that do differ from conventional migration activities.

Consumers and businesses pay the most when it comes to data breaches. It appears that the White House is taking action to try and develop the rules by which companies have to notify their clients in the case of future data breaches.

When asked what makes an award-winning support team, the easy answer is to hire good people. Yet those good people don’t become great support people overnight. That takes training, experience and, in our case, great mentors who invest their time in helping good people rise to their full potential.

 

 

Recently, Steve Marsh, Director of Product Marketing, spoke with Clark Buckner at TechnologyAdvice about the rise of data breaches and how Metalogix’ free Insider Threat Index could help.

To highlight the struggle with end-users’ and IT’s decisions of what infrastructure is needed to support a specific collaboration technology I’ll focus on a very common scenario when IT is faced with team collaboration, Intranets and Extranets on SharePoint.

Administrators have the herculean task of juggling settings for multiple users and services, which can be incredibly tedious, repetitive, and daunting. Not all settings are centralized, especially for hybrid (combination cloud and on-premises) scenarios. Errors can creep in if administrators lose focus while multitasking.

 

Depending on their configurations, here are just some of the settings administrators might juggle:

At last week’s Microsoft Ignite conference, Metalogix demonstrated the culmination of many months of work that we've completed with Microsoft to address a huge pain point for any business in the process of migrating to SharePoint Online in Office 365 – the slow speed of migration.

 

So here we are at the end of Ignite and one thing was clear -- SharePoint 2016 was everywhere. Already at Metalogix we are being asked about migrating to the new version therefore I thought a short post would be in order. Although it's very early, I can confidently say that Metalogix Content Matrix will support migrations directly to SharePoint 2016 from previous versions of SharePoint without the need to do an intermediate jump e.g. 2010 straight to 2016.

 

If the Microsoft Ignite conference stressed anything, it was the continued focus on Cloud First technologies.

 

Last Saturday Metalogix sponsored SharePoint Saturday Dubai, an annual gathering of SharePoint experts and enthusiasts. Several MVPs were present including Joel Olesson and Michael Noel. They shared their insights and best practices. One of the hottest topics I was asked about was security in Office 365.
