What is iManage?

iManage is popular among large corporations, the financial sector, law firms, and real estate for managing their large amounts of data. The many files stored in iManage, emails, pdfs, or office files are classified and categorized by document classes and subclasses such as by client, project, or matter.

So why migrate from iManage to SharePoint if you're in the above sectors?

iManage’s inherent complexity (both application and IT complexity), requires a qualified iManage consultant to train your firm on using iManage. Additionally, using large data sets means you'll need to either maintain an on-premise server or pay for iManage's own hosted server service. What you need is a solution that enhances the employee experience, meets compliance and governance regulations and offers excellent performance. That's where Microsoft's SharePoint comes in! 

Microsoft SharePoint is a cloud-based collaboration system using applications and features to bring your workplace together, creating a space for collaboration and increased efficiency. No matter the size of your business, SharePoint improves productivity whilst keeping shared documents secure and organized. This solves several of your business objectives from governance to managing security and permissions. 

What should you do next?

Migrating to SharePoint from iManage is more complex than dragging and dropping onto a new platform. Suppose your goal is to streamline your business while ensuring you get the maximum value from your information. In that case, you will need your new SharePoint platform to be optimized for productivity, collaboration, and growth.  With all migrations, it requires careful preparation.
