Using the new Microsoft 365 cloud collaboration services sounds simple, but in reality, modernizing infrastructure is time-consuming, out-of-scope or inefficient. Regardless of your organization’s size or source environment, successfully moving into Microsoft 365 Intelligent Workplace requires industry best practices that have been tested and proven time and again, especially around pre-and post-migration tasks. It`s by far not enough just to trigger a migration tool. In this session, we’ll reveal insider tips on how to effectively modernize sites, pages, templates, and document libraries from legacy SharePoint Classic into SharePoint Online Modern Experience. We are going to show you how free modernization scanner, assessment tools and modernizing scripts from Microsoft can help you. Session also includes a demo of how to use SharePoint Lookbook to embed a Modern SharePoint Site into Microsoft Teams experience.
