The Intricacies Involved in SharePoint Migration & Its Solution

Correct SharePoint implementation is essentially required to make the entire process successful; when we say correct implementation, it implies eliminating all chances of failures and avoiding delays completely. During a typical migration process, the estimated time may deviate from that actually required due to a number of factors like unavoidable delays that take your SharePoint implementation on the wrong foot.

Conducting migration in a timely manner is not the only requirement; precisely, the details must also be set right. More care needs to be taken in regard to checked-out documents as users will never like to redo on the documents again once the migration is completed. Hence, prior to migration, get a report to know the number of checked-out documents existing in SharePoint. Besides that, also fetch a report on the database size and the number of sites that have been updated lately.
