Whenever you need to move content to or within SharePoint, you need to decide which tools are right for the task. The choice of the tools is determined by your migration strategy. For most organizations, it is down to two options (or a combination of the two): you either rely on the tools supplied by Microsoft or invest in a third-party migration solution, such as Quest Migration Suite for SharePoint, to help you get the job done.
Many of our customers and partners ask us, "How do you compare with Microsoft native tools?"
To answer this frequently asked question, we created a new technical brief, Choosing the Right Tools for SharePoint 2010 Migration, that looks at how Quest Migration Suite compares to native Microsoft tools and methods in addressing key business requirements for the following projects:
- Upgrade from a previous version of SharePoint
- Migration, consolidation and reorganization of SharePoint content
