Migrate documents and files to Microsoft 365

Whether you’re moving documents from legacy file servers and file shares, other Document Management System, or on-premises SharePoint, we can migrate all of your documents and files into Microsoft 365.  We can maintain the full integrity of document properties, can automatically organise and categorise migrated files as well as update documents and add new properties and meta data as needed.  Because we build a customised Microsoft 365 data migration tool for your specific project there is virtually no limit to what we can do as part of the migration.

Some examples of what we’re often asked to do as part of an Microsoft 365 data migration:

  • Move documents into Microsoft 365 from a wide variety of sources. File shares, individual “My Documents”, other SharePoint versions, Document Management Systems, etc.
  • Maintain standard document properties such as created date, modified date, author, etc.
  • Maintain custom document properties embedded into documents for supported file types, i.e. office documents and pdf files.
  • Maintain version histories from legacy Document Management Systems.
  • Assign migrated documents to sites, libraries, folders, document sets, content types, meta data, tags, etc based on document properties, source file folder structure, etc.
  • Apply document retention policies, user access permissions, audience targeting.
  • Convert documents to other formats on migration.
  • Create managed meta data taxonomy or populate “lookup lists” with unique meta data values during migration

Microsoft 365 data migration – should you move all you data and content?

With the extensive toolset offered by Microsoft 365, it is worthwhile considering moving as much external data and content into the appropriate Microsoft 365 tool as possible.  This will provide users with an integrated online access to all of your key business data.

  • Import data from external databases and cross link back to original database record.
  • import data into appropriate Microsoft 365 tool, e.g. SharePoint, Planner, Calendar, Tasks, etc.
  • Import Taxonomies
  • Create pseudo relational databases in SharePoint.
  • Re-create WIKI content in SharePoint

Integrating 3rd party systems with Microsoft 365

In cases where it is not appropriate to import data from external systems in Microsoft 365, we can integrate the systems holding that data with Microsoft 365.  This allows data from external systems to be surfaced and worked with within Microsoft 365.  Building new user experiences in Microsoft 365 can transform the usage of legacy 3rd party systems.
