With this service your own SharePoint Server could be fully migrated to the Microsoft Cloud. Please note, versions 2007 and earlier are not supported.

Our objective is complete migration from SharePoint Server to SharePoint Online. The project will be considered successful when all files, documents and design have been migrated and users start using SharePoint Online as a replacement for your own SharePoint.

Our responsibilities are to prepare the source environment for migration including saving library templates. We then create a SharePoint Online administrator or Site Collection administrator account to be used for migration. Before beginning the migration project, we create the structure of the document libraries as well as the actual document libraries on the Destination SharePoint Online site. The next step is to add the items that will be migrated to the third-party tool, configure the advanced project options and perform the migration. Upon completion, we start post-migration tasks like preventing users from inadvertently using the Source SharePoint libraries by decommissioning the Source SharePoint server, libraries, or user accounts.

Client responsibilities
