MONTREAL, Aug. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sharegate, the Office 365 & SharePoint management tool, known in information technology circles for its simplicity and user-friendliness, has brought their Inventory feature to the next level by including the possibility of planning and assessing a migration from one SharePoint environment to another.
Sharegate's two previous releases introduced and upgraded their file share migration Inventory feature, which enabled organizations to assess the complexity and effort of a potential migration by providing a list of errors to be repaired before beginning the migration. It also listed the approximate time of completion for the move and gave a detailed report of exactly what files contain the errors, so they can be rectified prior to starting the migration.
Sharegate's latest release makes their Inventory feature even more powerful, by allowing users to plan both their File Share and SharePoint migrations.
This feature lets users quickly select an on-premises SharePoint environment, or other tenant, and simulate a migration to SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2016 or Office 365. After scanning the chosen environment, Sharegate provides a quick summary of what it contains, as well as a list of warnings and potential errors that could be encountered when moving to the desired destination.
Of this latest release, Simon De Baene, CEO at Sharegate, said: "Helping SharePoint administrators plan, migrate, report, and manage their SharePoint environments is what we're all about. This powerful new feature is the perfect addition to the planning stage! It's a way to really make their lives easier, because users can now get an idea of how large or how complicated their migration will be. That way they can plan accordingly and assure a seamless migration."
Sharegate simplifies management tasks for SharePoint, Office 365, and OneDrive for Business for thousands of administrators and IT professionals around the world. A privately-held company based in Montreal, Sharegate is trusted by more than 10,000 organizations. As a leader in its industry, Sharegate lives by the motto: "innovate and keep things simple & fun."
