Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) May 16, 2011

AvePoint, a proven leader in providing infrastructure management software solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, today announced that the Microsoft Technology Centers (MTCs), a collaborative environment that helps organizations achieve their business goals using Microsoft and partner technologies, used DocAve to perform a migration of its data and content stored on SharePoint 2007 to a Microsoft-internal hosted SharePoint 2010 environment.

“AvePoint’s DocAve Migrator solution saved us significant time and effort in the MTC’s migration to the Microsoft IT hosted service,” said Chuck McCann, Worldwide MTC Alliances Program Director, Microsoft. “Not only did it vastly improve the productivity of our migration team, it allowed our business to continue focusing on our mission: To tirelessly serve organizations using Microsoft technologies to solve their technical and business challenges.”

The MTC migration team deployed DocAve Migrator for SharePoint to perform a migration of the data and content stored on its SharePoint 2007 environment to an on-premises SharePoint 2010 staging farm before migrating to the hosted SharePoint 2010 environment without losing customizations, metadata, securities, and other information vital to ensuring the data would still be easily searchable for MTC employees to use for daily tasks.

With DocAve, the MTCs:

  •     Reduced total migration time by two months
  •     Migrated 12,000 site collections from SharePoint 2007 to the hosted SharePoint 2010 service
  •     Transferred approximately 200 lists while maintaining customizations, metadata, and field values
  •     Minimized business disruption by scheduling migration jobs to automatically occur off-hours

“DocAve’s features ensured our migration team could confidently run migrations faster, and without disrupting ongoing business,” said Toby Tobescu, Senior Technology Specialist, Microsoft.

“MTC’s successful SharePoint migration is another gratifying affirmation of AvePoint’s proven ability to help organizations worldwide take full advantage of SharePoint’s potential for helping companies improve productivity,” said Dr. Tianyi (TJ) Jiang, Co-Chief Executive Officer of AvePoint.
