MONTREAL, May 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sharegate, the Office 365 & SharePoint management tool, known in information technology circles for its simplicity and user-friendliness, made available a new inventory tool estimating the effort required to migrate file shares to both SharePoint and Office 365.
When it comes to company data and overall IT services, nobody likes surprises, and as with any kind of project, assessing the amount of resources demanded can prove tricky. Sharegate's new feature fixes this by providing administrators with a complete estimate tailored to their environment, thus cutting time on preparation as well as the migration's execution. Moreover, being able to properly assess the task at hands is a pain point often leading to delays and concerns from top management.
The new Sharegate Inventory connects to the servers and file shares planned for migration and lists the amount of files, the data volume and time required to move it all to your selected SharePoint version, either on-premises or online on Office 365. Sharegate will also display every warnings and errors foreseen during the migration.
Simon De Baene, CEO at Sharegate, commented: "Moving from file shares to SharePoint is a huge milestone for any enterprise, no matter their size. Sharegate's mission has always been to promote the adoption of the platform by simplify its management, and our new inventory does exactly that!

This is why we've made our inventory fully available in our free trial version."
