KLST Office Migration

SharePoint Online Migration Approach

Your organization will need to decide how to manage your SharePoint migration. KLST has experience with the following migration approach from on-premises to Office 365 SharePoint Online:

  • Current SharePoint environment Assessment –
    • Analyze Product Version
    • Web Applications and Service Applications Topology Assessment
    • Authentication and Authorization used (HTLM, Claims and/or FBA)
  • Content Assessment – Identifying what content exists on-premises
    • Identifying what content exists on-premises – Where is it stored? Who owns it? Is it still relevant?
    • Determining the size of the content source – Does it contains artifacts not suited for SharePoint? Does it contain duplicates? Version history? Aging?
    • Define the selection criteria
    • Assess how much content is left when criteria are applied
  • Migration Planning
    • Should I move?
    • Should I move to SharePoint Online services?
    • What should I do with – Web apps, Site collections, Sites, Document libraries
  • Application Assessment
    • End-User Customizations – Content, Web Parts, etc.
    • Authored Customizations – Page layouts, master pages, etc.
    • Developed Customizations – Compiled code, timer jobs, etc.
  • Environment Assessment
    • Users – Provisioning/License impact.
    • Featured Usage – Needed for remediation.
  • Migration Plan
    • Content Cleanup – Exclusion criteria, Inclusion criteria, Everything in between.
    • Migration Tools – Small-midsize content (File Explorer, SharePoint Workspace or Manual upload)
    • Migration Tools – Large-scale content (Staging environment, Third-party tools)
    • Information Architecture – Site collections, Sites, Managed paths and Content types
  • Environment Assessment
    • Users – Provisioning/License impact.
    • Featured Usage – Needed for remediation.

SharePoint Online Migration Considerations

  • The migration must be performed remotely – It is not possible to install anything on the Office365 servers.
  • It is not possible to ship disks or site collection backups.
  • User identities are different – On-premises users need to be mapped to cloud users.
  • Users without an assigned SharePoint license cannot be found via the People Picker or resolved programmatically.
