Hello and welcome back to the office. 3 65 Migration Primer Class Today we didn't go over model One lesson to which is Migrate.
00:12
My name is Jim Daniels, and I am a static that you're here with me today,
00:18
All right. To migrate or not to migrate. That is the question. I think William Shakespeare once said that
00:24
maybe, maybe not.
00:26
Anyway,
00:27
it always isn't the best decision. Margaret. Sometimes it makes more sense. None of my great
00:34
so point A to point B.
00:36
It's not always clear cut.
00:39
There are a few decision points your organization needs to go over in order to determine whether migration is a correct path for you.
00:47
Risk versus reward
00:50
Migration versus export import.
00:53
Would it be easier just to export your content
00:56
and then imported into a new online environment?
01:00
Migration versus blank slate?
01:03
Do you want to go? Score Start
01:04
Is your current implementation of SharePoint so bad that you just wanna torture
01:11
and so completely over?
01:15
I've been there before. It's OK, it's OK if you want. Admit that
01:19
some organizations that will be easier to go that way.
01:23
What's the time? One.
01:25
Do you need to have something up and running line next week. Next month,
01:29
next quarter next year that plays into it as well,
01:33
or their compliance or regulatory considerations. Maybe you're moving to the cloud so you can be compliant with a certain regulation
01:42
again.
01:44
These are all key decision points that each organization as the face and they're all unique to that organization.
01:52
When you go to decide whether migration or fresh start or export import is best,
01:59
please involve your key stakeholders and your data owners
02:04
don't make a decision 100% on your arm.
02:07
It will come back to by you.
02:09
Take input from all of the stakeholders. Let them talk amongst themselves as well, taking import from the data owner because they know what compliance considerations and regulatory constraints there behind.
02:23
It should be a group decision
02:28
and, above all, make a plan.
02:31
Make a plan
02:32
one more time, make a plan. Okay, I like two more times. Make a plan. Make a plan. Make a plan that was three times but anyway and make a plan,
02:44
any migration, any fresh start any export import in the 3 65 needs to be documented. You need to list the risk
02:54
the rewards.
02:57
Who doesn't want any timelines? Any parties, any third parties,
03:02
all that needs to be documented. You have to have a well thought out and well documented and well vetted plan to be successful.
03:13
So in recap,
03:15
migration sometimes is the answer sometimes isn't it really depends on the organization. Each scenario is completely different.
03:28
Make a plan and please involve all needed parties.
03:34
Thank you for joining me when this very short module in the Officer 65 migration primer.
