Without Proventeq we could not have migrated such diverse systems so effectively.
- Service Improvement Lead, Babcock
Case Study Overview
Babcock had a requirement to migrate terabytes of data, consisting of thousands of Sites and Workspaces, and millions of Document and items from SharePoint 2003, Exchange 2007 Public Folders, Autonomy iManage Worksite, Autonomy Zantas EAS Archive and Lotus Notes into SharePoint.
The Complexities Of Migrating From Multiple Source To SharePoint
- Dealing with multiple origin systems at once.
- Business reorganisation- this warranted the creation of a new content hierarchy.
- Migrate existing data archived in third party archival systems.
- Rename and modify users, groups and domains in the new environment.
- Remap source security model to the new security model.
Solving Babcock’ Unique Challenges
Here at Proventeq, we specialise in non-Microsoft to Microsoft migrations; Babcock had multiple source systems that required consolidation into SharePoint.
Their assets were critical and of high importance- our Migration Accelerator allowed our team to trial the migration and securely map the transfer of data to highlight any future errors for rectification. Customisation is important in any migration.
We created a brand-new structure for their assets in SharePoint that included specifications from Babcock themselves. Security was paramount, so each item was seamlessly allocated the same level as it had in their original source systems.
