Bill Evans, vice president and general manager, SharePoint and Notes Transition, Quest Software

“SharePoint administrators often view migration projects as tedious, time-consuming ordeals. With the introduction of these new solutions, we’re changing the way SharePoint migration is done – it’s now simple, focused and fast. Specifically, with our Migration Suite for SharePoint, we enable SharePoint administrators to use one tool to complete their migration projects, something that previously wasn’t available from any vendor. This provides powerful new functionality, and changes the way in which the SharePoint community views migration.”

Tim Sokoloski, general manager, Enterprise Integration Solutions, RCM Technologies, Inc.

“Our clients frequently turn to us for assistance with migration projects encompassing hundreds of databases and thousands of users. As a Quest Elite Partner, we rely on the company’s suite of migration tools to help us create an inventory of databases, identify usage patterns and analyze database complexity. This enables us to efficiently and effectively estimate time and resources while planning a rapid execution strategy for the migration. Recently, we moved thousands of documents into a SharePoint library for a customer in one week and it would have been impossible to migrate so much data that fast without Quest’s migration solutions.”
