The key challenges that need to be overcome before migration, and the need for an understanding of the steps involved during the migration, will be shared with attendees.
McLean, VA, US and Stevenage, UK (PRWEB UK) 20 February 2014
Concept Searching, the global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software, and developer of the Smart Content Framework™, and Portal Solutions, an acknowledged industry leader in SharePoint, are sponsoring the joint webinar ‘Climbing the Slippery Slope of SharePoint Migration’, on Tuesday, March 25th at 11:30 – 12:30 EST. Registration is now open for this practical and informative webinar focusing on SharePoint and migration challenges.
As the cloud is becoming more pervasive and with the growth of Office 365, migration projects have a different level of complexity, adding to the existing challenges of budget overruns, unexpected down time, and reliance on the business user community for validation. Statistics indicate that 84% of migration projects fail. With unabated growth in unstructured and semi-structured content, departmental silos of information, and a lack of enterprise processes to manage content, a migration project is often in jeopardy before it begins.
Join Jill Hannemann, Practice Director for Advisory Services at Portal Solutions, who is an industry recognized expert on the topics of portal strategy, governance and information architecture, and Don Miller, Vice President of Commercial Accounts at Concept Searching, as they cover all aspects of migration in SharePoint.
In this webinar, a focus on both technical and business issues will be discussed. Portal Solutions will provide best practices and approaches based on its expertise, and will explore the business case for how migration adds value and delivers ROI. The key challenges that need to be overcome before migration, and the need for an understanding of the steps involved during the migration, will be shared with attendees.
Understand what is meant by the term ‘intelligent migration’ and why Concept Searching’s conceptClassifier for SharePoint platform and conceptClassifier for Office 365 platform are being used to facilitate the migration process through automatic semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management tools.
Webinar attendees will:
- Learn the best practices and processes to approach migration
- Understand the key challenges that need to be overcome before migration
- Obtain buy-in and build the business case for why intelligent migration adds value and does not just move content from one place to another
- Take away a clear vision of the steps involved during migration and the phases to be accomplished
- Hear about intelligent migration technologies using the conceptClassifier for SharePoint platform
- See how the technology is a key component in an intelligent migration solution
- Find the ROI of using one set of technologies to facilitate the migration process, and deploy metadata enabled solutions for search, content management, data protection, records management, and any application that uses metadata
If you cannot attend, please register and we will send you a link to the recorded webinar and PowerPoint presentation.
