A successful migration isn’t just about the tooling, it’s the processes that you follow and those that you embed as you transition to BAU. SharePoint is a powerful collaboration platform that helps organisations manage documents, streamline workflows, and improve team productivity. However, as businesses evolve and technology advances, there often comes a time when migrating to a newer SharePoint version or even to the cloud becomes necessary. SharePoint migrations can be complex and challenging, but with careful planning and consideration, they can be executed smoothly. Our top 5 Process recommendations for SharePoint migrations are below.
Before diving into a SharePoint migration, it's crucial to perform a thorough assessment of your existing SharePoint environment. This includes identifying the types of content, customisations, and third-party solutions currently in use. We help you understand the scope and complexity of your SharePoint deployment and create a migration plan that addresses specific needs.
SharePoint migrations provide an opportunity to clean up your data and improve governance practices. Before migrating, review and clean up redundant, outdated, or trivial (ROT) data. We help you to design and implement governance policies and guidelines to ensure that the new SharePoint environment remains organised and manageable.
One of the critical challenges in SharePoint migrations is dealing with customisations and third-party solutions. Ensure that your custom scripts, workflows, and applications are compatible with the target SharePoint environment. You may need help to recreate or rebuild customisations to work seamlessly in the new version.
Thorough testing and validation are essential to ensure a successful SharePoint migration. Create a test environment that mirrors your production environment and conduct migration tests to identify and resolve any issues before the actual migration. User acceptance testing (UAT) is crucial to ensure that the new SharePoint environment meets end-users' expectations, and we can assist with driving this test activity.
Effective communication and user training are often overlooked but vital aspects of a SharePoint migration. Ensure that end-users are informed about the upcoming changes and receive adequate training to use the new SharePoint environment effectively. We help you to develop clear communication plans that help manage user expectations and reduces resistance to change.

We excel at delivering SharePoint services, and our chosen experts will help you to harness everything that SharePoint has to offer.
