As more organizations move to Office 365 during mergers and acquisitions, they need robust solutions to consolidate their SharePoint Online infrastructure and documents. We will help to migrate site collections, sites, lists and libraries with permissions and design.

Our objective is to migrate documents, sites and structure from one SharePoint tenant to another.

Project will be considered successful when all data has been moved from one tenant to another correctly in an agreed time-frame.

Our responsibilities. First, we check the source SharePoint Online tenant for compatibility with the new tenant and help fix any errors (if the destination tenant is not empty). In this type of merging, we use special tools that provide a set of features and flexible options to help us maintain data integrity, permission levels, version histories and metadata. We also use auditing and reporting tools to help plan, configure and granularly migrate content. We create the Document Migration project and add the items that will be migrated to the project. We then set the advanced project options and perform the migration. Upon completion of the project, we prevent users from inadvertently using older SharePoint libraries by decommissioning the Source SharePoint Online, libraries, or user accounts. After the process is done, we verify files and structure and perform post-migration tasks.
