We will migrate your files and documents from the local File Server to SharePoint Online, keeping the folder structure and synchronizing all the files that have changed since the migration process started. We will provide a detailed report with a list files that could not be migrated (access or permission issues, bad file name, etc.).

IT Partner responsibilities

  1. Create the Document Migration Plan.
  2. Inspect files and folders that will be migrated.
  3. Prepare SharePoint Online environment.
  4. Perform the migration.
  5. Make sure the sync process is running so changed files are being migrated continuously.
  6. Provide post-migration break-fix and support services.

Client responsibilities

  1. Provide a dedicated point of contact responsible for working with IT Partner and coordinate any outside vendor resources and schedules
  2. Configure all network equipment such as load balancers, routers, firewalls, and switches
  3. Establish a communication plan for end-users.
  4. Provide access to physical and virtual servers and/or systems and services as needed. Provide remote and/or physical access to facility and systems required to complete the work
  5. Provide access to files that would be migrated.
  6. Perform changes to internal and external DNS as required
  7. Assist with identification of high-risk users (top executives and VIP-users)
  8. During the project, you must notify users that a migration is occurring. Throughout the process, they should not modify any documents because any modifications will not be included in the migration.

Additional cost items not provided by the project

  1. Training of customer team (could be added as an additional service)
  2. Mail server migration (could be added as an additional service)
  3. Desktop software settings
