SharePoint Migration Tools

One of the biggest topics in the SharePoint community is SharePoint migration tools. Whether it is from an old version to the latest version or from one content database to another, the use of a SharePoint migration tool is imperative. Native SharePoint migration tools for SharePoint migrations just don’t cut it because they leave behind essential information: metadata; permissions; workflows. It’s difficult to migrate SharePoint using native tools. It’s also hard to find a tool that will seamlessly migrate your entire SharePoint environment including sites, lists, list items, views and permissions.

There are several products that may possibly fit this purpose:

  1. Sharegate Migration Tools for SharePoint
  2. Quest Software Migration Suite
  3. AvePoint SharePoint Migration
  4. Idera SharePoint Migration Suite

Just so you know, Sharegate won the 2012 Andy Dale Sharepoint Award for Best SharePoint Application.
