SharePoint Migration Support


Our client has implemented a cloud-first strategy that includes moving solutions and data from on-site hosted data centres to the Microsoft 365 platforms by the end of 2022.

Employee Workplace has a must-win goal of having migrated 80% of the existing SharePoint content to SharePoint Online by the end of 2022 (currently at approx. 20%).

For this migration we wish to engage with a vendor who can provide the skills and resources to temporarily augment our existing internal team to enable us to achieve this goal and meet the demand of our users.

Content is migrated from SharePoint 2016 on-premises into SharePoint Online following an automated, IT-driven migration strategy to provide the best experience for our users. The main responsibility will be to define and schedule migration batches, and then reviewing and fixing any pre- and post-migration issues / problems.
