(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – BitTitan, the cloud enablement provider, today at SharePoint Fest announces that its cloud-based data migration solution, MigrationWiz®, will support document migrations to and from Microsoft® SharePoint® Online, including SharePoint 2010 and 2013, as well as from File Server. MigrationWiz will automate the entire process of moving document libraries and lists, including permissions, from one source to another, enabling partners and companies to use a single application to automate both mailbox and SharePoint migrations to the cloud. In addition, partners and companies will benefit from the broadest range of supported sources and destinations, making MigrationWiz a unique solution on the market. The SharePoint document migration will be available in May 2015.
For most migrations to the cloud, documents and files are often an afterthought, once the mailboxes have been moved. In addition, moving SharePoint files, lists and permissions can be tricky and time-consuming, because partners and companies must ensure that file structure and permissions align with the new file system. BitTitan’s MigrationWiz eliminates this headache. Companies can now migrate mailboxes and documents together, from one source to another, without needing additional applications or services.
MigrationWiz automates the entire onboarding process, simplifying the move of an on-premise document solution to the cloud or, in the case of an acquisition, merge systems from tenant to tenant without the risk of losing legacy data, security or folder structure. As with mailbox migrations, MigrationWiz enables companies to move from an older version of SharePoint to SharePoint Online, skipping the traditional upgrade path that would otherwise be required. For document migrations, MigrationWiz keeps existing file hierarchies and permissions intact. Companies can also choose which documents they need to move to cloud, allowing them to only move the files they need.
“SharePoint is a popular platform. But until now, when partners and companies wanted to move to the cloud, they needed to migrate their mailboxes and documents separately using different applications and processes,” said Geeman Yip, CEO of BitTitan. “By being able to use just one solution for all their migration needs, companies can ensure everything works seamlessly. For our partners, the addition of SharePoint migrations also equals additional projects and revenue opportunities through the same solution they already know.”
BitTitan is showcasing this capability at SharePoint Fest, taking place at the Walter E. Convention Center in Washington, D.C., April 8-10, 2015. BitTitan is also a gold sponsor of the event. To see a demo, attendees can visit booth F3. To learn more about BitTitan SharePoint migrations and available discounts, visit http://www.bittitan.com/products/migrationwiz/move-everything.
