WASHINGTON, April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Metalogix announced today the release of Content Matrix 7.0 and significant enhancements to Metalogix' SharePoint Migration ToolkitTM, the most complete suite of migration resources that deliver a better way for organizations to quickly and securely migrate business‑critical content to SharePoint 2013.
The SharePoint 2013 migration wave kicked into high gear after Microsoft's SharePoint Conference 2014 in March, where Microsoft showcased the business value and clarified SharePoint's future roadmap through the next iteration–SharePoint 2015–on-premises and in Office 365. A recent Metalogix poll revealed that more than 70 percent of respondents have plans to deploy SharePoint 2013 in the next 12 months.
Metalogix offers a complete set of SharePoint migration tools that support customers from pre-migration analysis and clean-up through post-migration management and administration. Metalogix' Content Matrix 7.0 and Metalogix' free SharePoint Migration Toolkit are the evolution of 14 years of experience working with 14,000 customers to conduct the most complex migrations and upgrades. Content Matrix 7.0 coupled with Metalogix' SharePoint Migration Toolkit, improves the speed, fidelity, and flexibility required to migrate business-critical content from any previous version of SharePoint, to SharePoint 2013 with control and confidence.
Metalogix Content Matrix 7.0 improves the migration and upgrade to SharePoint 2013 with high-speed and high-fidelity content migrations from any previous version of SharePoint or other content sources to SharePoint 2013 on-premises or to Office 365, including those that require the Microsoft SharePoint Online Code Analysis Framework (MSOCAF) certification. Content Matrix 7.0 gives SharePoint administrators the ability to securely move business-critical content, where, when and how they want, simplifying the overall migration process by reducing the amount of manual labor required to prepare an existing farm and providing the tools needed to maintain site structure and content in the new farm. Additionally, Content Matrix 7.0 enables users to not just improve SharePoint's migration scalability, but also allows busy SharePoint administrators to delegate ongoing post migration reorganization, bulk metadata, and copy and move operations to trusted users who can manage their content directly within an expanded and greatly improved, and intuitive SharePoint user interface. You can also migrate SharePoint from legacy releases directly to SharePoint 2013 with one hop, saving time by reducing unnecessary manual steps.
Content Matrix 7.0 completes Metalogix' SharePoint Migration Toolkit, which offers a full set of migration tools that empower administrators to monitor, plan, and prototype the entire SharePoint migration lifecycle. The toolkit includes pre-migration analysis and clean-up through post-migration management and administration as well as post-migration improvements to SharePoint search and usability.
"By packaging Content Matrix 7.0 with the SharePoint Migration Toolkit, it helps our customers implement migrations much faster and achieve higher fidelity migrations to SharePoint 2013 both on‑premises and to Office 365," said Tony Daubenmerkl, Vice President Global Support Metalogix Software at Metalogix. "The SharePoint Migration Toolkit includes products that help our customers at each phase in the lifecycle of a migration, from planning to administration."
The free SharePoint Migration Toolkit addresses every step in the migration lifecycle and includes videos, guides and tools for:
- Research: Considerations for moving to SharePoint 2013 or Office 365
- Assess: Inventory SharePoint and understand content usage
- Plan: Decide what to migrate and identify risks
- Prepare: Prototype migration and cleanup permissions
- Execute: Move content without business disruption
- Maintain: Keep SharePoint organized and monitor performance
The toolkit is available on Metalogix' website: www.metalogix.com/MigrationToolkit
"It is clear that the great migration wave to SharePoint 2013 is underway. There is always a lag to upgrade to the most current version of SharePoint and this SharePoint 2013 wave has taken a bit longer than it did in past versions. However, last month Metalogix conducted a survey at SharePoint Conference 2014 which revealed that more than 70 percent of respondents plan on deploying SharePoint 2013 in the next year. We are seeing an increase in license key requests and downloads of our free SharePoint Migration Toolkit. Since Microsoft clarified its strategy for SharePoint 2013 on‑premises and in the cloud, businesses are definitely accelerating their migration plans," said Metalogix CEO Steven Murphy. "Our experience-built SharePoint Migration Toolkit, along with Content Matrix 7.0, addresses key pre‑migration analysis and clean-up through ongoing post-migration metadata management and administration. This packaging really helps our customers conduct much faster and higher fidelity migrations to SharePoint 2013 on-premises and Office 365, backed by our satisfaction guarantee."
