AvePoint Helps Migrate From SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010
You are currently using SharePoint 2007 and you are chomping at the bit to move to SharePoint 2010 (which still isn't here yet, so calm down). Wondering how you can get all your information easily into the new version? AvePoint (news, site) has an option for you.

Getting your SharePoint content into SharePoint

The DocAve Migrator can help you migrate your content from both SharePoint 2003 and SharePoint 2007 into SharePoint 2010. Note that this also includes WSS2.0 and WSS3.0.

AvePoint, as part of the Microsoft Office TAP (Technology Adoption Program) program, has had inside knowledge of the inner workings of the upcoming version of SharePoint. They have designed their migration solution to go beyond the basic out of the box migration offering that Microsoft offers to move from 2007 to 2010.

The out of the box offering involves a bulk upgrade at the farm or database level. AvePoint extends this in the following way:

  • Migrate and map content, metadata, customizations and configurations from 2007 to SharePoint 2010 and reorganize, remap or move to new folders once migrated.
  • Migrate a single instance or content item.
  • Using the Pre-Migration Scanner, you can get notified of elements that need to be mapped for a successful migration.

Migrate Content from Anywhere

In addition, you can also migrate from 2003 -- something Microsoft doesn't offer -- and of, course, a number of other content management systems including Oracle/Stellent,Lotus Notes, Documentum eRoom, File Systems, Exchange Public Folders, Open Text LiveLink and Vignette.

Of course, AvePoint isn't your only SharePoint migration option. You can also check out the MetaVis Migrator and Metalogix.
