Microsoft’s continued strategic commitment to SharePoint Server promises even more benefits for users, but many SharePoint customer enterprises face considerable transition challenges as Microsoft increases its emphasis on SharePoint Online within Office 365. Earlier releases of SharePoint Server (2001 – 2013) often get weighed down with large and uncoordinated SharePoint farms, informal site and application development policies, and uncertainty about how to manage legacy content. CASAHL is here to help enterprises understand, optimize, and transition legacy SharePoint content and apps to modern SharePoint Server or Office 365 deployments so that they can transition smoothly and take full advantage of SharePoint’s new features.
CASAHL’s support for classic SharePoint lets enterprises transition from earlier SharePoint Server releases (including 2001, 2003, 2007, 2010, and 2013) to SharePoint 2016 or Office 365, or consolidate multiple SharePoint 2016 farms into a single SharePoint 2016 deployment. We take the DART lifecycle approach to SharePoint migration, starting with assessment and moving to a rationalization environment before migration.
By using this market-proven strategy, CASAHL offers enterprises a quick, efficient transition for a fraction of the cost of more manually oriented migration services. The DART lifecycle offers enterprises an in-depth look at the ways the assessed system is in use, including activity and the total cost of ownership of existing content and applications – in SharePoint’s case, this activity level can be measured down to key constructs such as site, site collection, list, and document library, among others, allowing enterprises to mark inactive areas that can be moved to a less expensive storage or archival storage when migrating to the cloud. It also allows us to provide several key business benefits, including infrastructure cost savings, user-defined migration scope, full utilization of current Office 365 content, support for continuous transition(s), and the reconstruction of complex apps via Application Recomposition.
