SHAREPOINT 2016 & OFFICE 365 UPGRADE & MIGRATION SERVICES
EPC Group provides for industry leading upgrade and migration services for both SharePoint 2010 (SharePoint Server or Foundation) and SharePoint 2007 (SharePoint Server or WSS 3.0) into SharePoint 2016 and/or Office 365. We will work with you to help define the overall scope as well as identify the underlying tasks and milestones required to meet your objectives.
EPC Group will work with your organization’s stakeholders to review and architect an approach that is tailored to your needs and define key elements such as:
- The overall approach to your SharePoint 2016 and/or Office 365 upgrade or migration initiative based on your existing SharePoint environment’s user base, content, configurations and customizations
- Provide upgrade and migration options that align with any possible budgetary constraints to implement the project in a phased approach vs. a “big bang” approach
- Providing information architecture (IA) re-design, site consolidation and content clean-up to the existing SharePoint environment prior to the migration into SharePoint 2016 and/or Office 365
- Solutions for organizations that have multiple SharePoint instances or multiple versions that the upgrade approach, information architecture and system architecture will be required to account for and support (Organization’s who have both SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2007 environments)
- Solutions for organizations with both SharePoint and non-SharePoint based systems for the upgrade and migration initiative
- Are there existing custom features or workflows that are required to be “interoperable” between your existing SharePoint 2010 platform and the new SharePoint 2016 and/or Office 365 environment?
EPC Group has experience in upgrade and migration initiatives of any size from both a “total user base” as well as “content database and sizing” perspective. We also provide for solutions to organizations that may have “known migration issues” such as RBS configurations and related SQL Server database “flags” that must be resolved or customizations that must be rearchitected or deprecated and then implemented within the new SharePoint 2016 framework.
EPC Group’s senior SharePoint architects and development teams can provide you with solutions to resolve any issues you are facing as we have experience on hundreds of previous SharePoint upgrade and migration efforts and pull from these “from the consulting trenches” strategies and lessons learned. You will know you are engaging with a trusted partner who will ensure your high-profile project is a success.
