While the process of data migration can be straightforward, it’s not without its pitfalls. It is not as simple as cutting and pasting files and folders straight into your new SharePoint site.
To get it right the first time, you need to have the right experience, tools, and strategy. If you don’t you could be putting your company and data at risk.
Partner with an experienced and trusted SharePoint consultancy to avoid the common pitfalls. Don’t risk falling victim to an unsuccessful SharePoint migration. It is not worth it as this would be painful and costly. We know because we have fixed many failed migrations.

Adepteq have migrated many organisations from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2019 or to SharePoint Online ensuring you are on a fully supported platform and your data is protected.
