Not only do we eat our own dog food—as the saying goes, but we think it’s quite yummy too!
Recently Quest Software upgraded its SharePoint platform from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010 with the help of our partner Avanade and several of our own SharePoint migration, management and customization tools! Check out these details and then read the full case study here: https://www.quest.com/solutions/sharepoint/
Quest Software is a leader in solutions for SharePoint® migration, administration, recovery, security and auditing, access management, and customization and development. So it was no surprise that when Quest needed to migrate from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010 it had the right tools to plan and execute the project.
To upgrade from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010
“The detailed information from Server Administrator and Site Administrator enabled us to be very specific with potential consultants about what our current SharePoint landscape was — the sites, the site collections, the size of the farm, the disk space requirements, the number of users, and all the details they would need to stage a successful implementation. That helps the consultant give you an accurate estimate, and it enables you to take your cost estimate to a CFO with a strong measure of confidence that you can meet it."
— Henry Ong, Systems Administrator, Quest Software
"Using Migration Suite, we were able to migrate content out of the incompatible list and site templates that relied on the FAB 40 features into standard templates. Doing that manually would take easily one to two months; we were able to get it done in a few weeks."
“The fact that Quest used Quest Web Parts instead of custom code in their source SharePoint environment undoubtedly simplified the migration, saving them a lot of time and money."
— Brian Berg, project delivery lead, Avanade
"[PowerGui Pro] It saved us quite a bit of time because we had to do a lot of custom analysis and scripting in looking for areas that needed to be cleaned up. It also helped in doing cleanup and testing the migration. I know the Avanade team will carry that tool to future projects."
