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:
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.
