MetaVis Supports Office 365 for Business and SharePoint Online

Don't Upgrade Your Mess; Migrate and Organize to Take Full Advantage of Office 365 and SharePoint Online

PHILADELPHIA, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/27/13 -- MetaVis Technologies announced today that its SharePoint migration, administration, information management and governance software support Microsoft's latest release of Office 365 for business, SharePoint Online and SharePoint 2013. All MetaVis products work with SharePoint 2013, Office 365, SharePoint 2010, 2007 and 2003 and are designed to help companies organize their SharePoint environments. Companies can download a free trial of the MetaVis Migration Suite and begin their SharePoint migration today.

Many companies are planning their SharePoint 2013 and Office 365 upgrade strategies using the traditional database attach approach. The downside to this approach is that it doesn't work for Office 365, moves a lot of unneeded or unused sites, content, components and customizations and doesn't allow you to migrate directly from SharePoint 2003 and 2007 without interim steps.

"MetaVis Migration Suite allows companies to organize their SharePoint as they migrate ensuring that they do not upgrade their mess but instead migrate to a fresh and clean SharePoint environment. Unlike the database attach method, our SharePoint migration tool allows users to take full advantage of the new features in SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint Online such as the redesigned user interface and Shredded Storage during migration," says Peter Senescu, President and Co-founder of MetaVis Technologies.

MetaVis customers can begin migrating, managing and providing governance to SharePoint 2013 and Office 365 immediately. MetaVis Migration Suite and Architect Suite are powerful yet simple-to-use tools for moving to Office 365 SharePoint or SharePoint 2013 and supports migrations from SharePoint (premise-based or hosted), file systems, Microsoft Exchange Public Folders, Microsoft Outlook, and Google.Drive.

With the MetaVis Migration Suite, companies can take advantage of new features in SharePoint 2013 such as Shredded Storage to decrease their document storage requirements. By supporting the Shredded Storage feature, MetaVis allows users to migrate only the most recent copy of a document plus any versions that are required under governance policies as opposed to bringing over all the document content and corresponding BLOB files that exists. This reduces storage requirements and improves site performance.

Additional advantages of using MetaVis Migration Suite to migrate to SharePoint 2013 or SharePoint Online include:

  • Agentless Migration: No server side access is required as long as you have credentials;
  • Migrate and Restructure Content: Bulk migrate and copy entire lists, libraries, sites and site collections along with web parts, views, permissions, versions;
  • Migrate Metadata: Retain or enrich metadata as you migrate without the use of server-sides agents, deployments or configurations;
  • Enrich Metadata: Classify or reclassify content as you migrate;
  • Copy Content: Copy multiple items between folders, lists, sites or farms while simultaneously modifying or retaining an item's content type and metadata;
  • Term Stores: Migrate term groups, sets or terms between 2010 or 2013 managed metadata services;
  • Incremental Migrations: Keep your old SharePoint environment live and use incremental migration to pick up any differences; and
  • Scripted Migrations: Perform any type of SharePoint migration using PowerShell and CMD scripts.

MetaVis offers a number of resources to help companies plan their SharePoint 2013 migration strategies. Whitepapers, blogs and On Demand webinars are available at http://www.metavistech.com/SharePoint2013-migration.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
