SharePoint Migration 2016 Process

1

Environment assessment

In the first and foremost step of SharePoint migration process, analysis is carried out on the current setup to check for size of data, site collection, file name with its naming conventions, and to analyze document library.

2

Capacity planning

Capacity planning is done on the basis of analysis that is carried out on the current setup. Before migration, the probability of increase in data is checked so as to allocate servers or purchase subscription in accordance with the size of data. This step also involves planning for SharePoint setup in terms of hardware and software requirement.

3

Define structure

During the migration there might be a possibility of some change in data structure or a need to enhance functionalities, which can be defined for the migration process. In this step, the existing data structure is analyzed to find out how it has been laid out.

4

Custom development

During the migration process, the IT team might come across web parts and solutions which cannot be migrated directly. In such cases, development is to be done for the targeted version, which may include some additional functionality.

5

Run staging migration

The staging server is used to create and test the changes to a company’s SharePoint sites. After the changes are tested, the changes are migrated to the production server, where users can access the site. This ensures that production will have tested version with no error and in case of errors, they can be handled on staging if any.

6

Pre-migration check

This is one of the most significant steps in the migration process. It includes environment assessment, security matrix check, pre-planning, data structure verification & metadata validation, and workflows.

7

Migrate

In this step, the execution for the migration process from the old environment to the new environment gets started.

8

Post-migration check

Once the migration is done, everything is reviewed to ensure a smooth transition. The review will make sure that everything is migrated to the new environment and is working as expected. This step also checks if any enhancements are made and whether they are working as they should.
