Metalogix Software, the leading provider in content lifecycle management (CLM) solutions for Microsoft® SharePoint®, Exchange®, and legacy environments, announced today that Acosta Sales & Marketing (Acosta) has successfully migrated from SharePoint 2003 to 2007 with Metalogix Migration Manager for SharePoint with zero downtime or disruption to its business. Metalogix Migration Manager for SharePoint uses a familiar copy-and-paste-style user interface so Acosta can easily optimize its data before migrating it. They can also migrate at their own pace while maintaining full fidelity and preserving views, version chains, metadata and user-edit information.
Acosta has grown from a local food broker to become the leading outsourced sales and marketing agency serving consumer packaged goods companies and retailers across North America. With this rapid growth, the company had several hundred gigabytes of document files and found that theyneeded to use many of the advanced features in SharePoint 2003 to manage them. But, when it came time to migrate to SharePoint 2007, moving the data they were using in the earlier version was problematic. The Acosta team began to evaluate third-party SharePoint migration solutions to help automate their migrationprocess, but found that few offered the ease of use and features it discovered in the Metalogix Migration Manager for SharePoint solution.
“Our options were to do the migration manually, or leverage a solution that only handled a fraction of the content. Neither approach was viable for us because they invited risk of lost data and business disruption to our collaboration environment,” said John Morales, collaboration technology manager and platform support services, Acosta Sales & Marketing. “The Metalogix solution was very successful in handling the more advanced parts of our SharePoint content migration and we just felt at ease with Metalogix. The implementation and deployment of the product is dead simple. We deployed it in our production environment in a matter of minutes with absolutely no downtime.”
Acosta uses Metalogix Migration Manager for SharePoint as a core component of its SharePoint management process. The company finds the product to be a tremendous productivity saver, making what was once a time consuming and error ridden task of migrating their SharePoint data, painless and error free.
“Working with innovative firms like Acosta is a real win/win and we are pleased to work with firms that want to implement advanced SharePoint management solutions that enhance and add value to their existing and future content management practices,” said Steven Murphy, CEO of Metalogix. “Acosta had such a positive and easy experience migrating from SharePoint 2003 to 2007 with Migration Manager for SharePoint that they have come back to us to migrate to SharePoint 2010. We strive to offer the most advanced functionality and user-friendly migration solutions in the market that make even the most tedious tasks effortless–all without disruption or downtime for our customers.”
