About this book
Learn from Pro SharePoint Migration on how to migrate your existing farm - infrastructure, upgrade approaches, code, branding, and impact of new features of SharePoint 2010 - in a strategic way that results in smooth transition. Noted author Sahil Malik, with Srini Sistla, work together to provide detailed strategies and tools to assess, plan and execute a SharePoint 2010 migration that is efficient and cost-effective—and that doesn't use expensive third-party software.
The "clean slate" approach embraced by this book, coupled with flexible tools designed by Microsoft and the author, will provide you with the statistics, charts, and diagrams necessary to perform a meaningful assessment of your current SharePoint 2007 environment. You'll then be able to plan the lowest-cost, least-hassle way to migrate your current environment, and its applications and data, to SharePoint 2010, and how to map your existing use of SharePoint 2007 to the new features and enhancements in SharePoint 2010.
