It’s becoming difficult if not impossible to miss the current discussion about “the cloud.” It seems that every blog, IT magazine, and industry publication is talking about it. Migrating to the cloud can provide significant benefits for many organizations as it holds the promise of reduced overhead, a serious incentive now as IT resources are tasked to do more with less. Organizations considering a move to the cloud, however, must first evaluate what it would take to move their existing SharePoint environment to the cloud.
In this white paper, Michael Noel, a SharePoint MVP with Convergent Computing, outlines real world best practices for migrating on-premises SharePoint environments to the cloud. This paper also explores popular cloud options, including Microsoft SharePoint Online as part of Microsoft’s Office 365 offering. Learn the limitations of an out-of-the box migration as well as what to look for in a third-party tool, and the importance of information governance, security and migration methodologies.
