Upgrade and Migration Consulting

A version upgrade or migration is a major challenge for any organisation that has invested in SharePoint/Alfresco. Every new edition brings more features to improve your business case. With several applications and customised SharePoint to the business needs, it becomes imperative to migrate these functionalities to the future platform. This involves significant effort, risk and cost.

The complexity is even higher when you need to migrate from another existing solution platform to SharePoint/Alfresco. We have helped several clients migrate their environment from one version SharePoint/Alfresco version to the latest, as well as from on-premises to hosted models or Office 365.
