Webinar Recap: Migrating to SharePoint Online with @jasonbell

There’s a lot of interest around moving to the cloud, and specifically, SharePoint Online. Because of that, we’ve had several webinars over the summer that focus on SharePoint Online and SharePoint in a hybrid environment (you can view all our past Microsoft webinars here, beginning with the most recent). headache2
Despite that interest, migrations can be a bit of a headache (or in some cases, a debilitating migraine). But, if you do your research and plan properly, the process can be a fairly smooth one – possibly even your last, since once in the cloud, you shouldn’t need to do intensive upgrades or migrations in the future.
Last week, we held another session around SharePoint Online, this time focusing on Best Practices for a Successful SharePoint Migration or Upgrade to the Cloud.  My colleague, Jason Bell, a senior solution architect within our Microsoft practice, kicked off the webinar with the top reasons to move to SharePoint Online. Following this, he shared migration methodology, which includes your migration assessment, migration development, and the actual migration plan.
Next, Jason talked about the different migration approaches – manual, scripted, or the use of a third party tool like AvePoint, Metalogix, or Sharegate. He wrapped up with a discussion around secure cloud computing, including information rights management and the use of Office Web Apps.
