Metalogix Migration Manager for SharePoint Enables Customers to Capitalize on Collaboration of SharePoint Server 2010

Metalogix, a Microsoft Partner and Gold Independent Software Vendor, Delivers Software Solutions for Fast, Easy and Cost-Efficient SharePoint Migrations

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Jul 26, 2011) - Metalogix Software, the leading provider in content lifecycle management (CLM) solutions for Microsoft® SharePoint®, Exchange®, and legacy environments, announced today that their partner, Microsoft, has acknowledged that since 2001, Metalogix has helped companies plan for and complete their transitions to Microsoft management systems as quickly and cost-efficiently as possible. Metalogix is a member of the Microsoft Partner Network with a Gold Independent Software Vendor/Software competency.

With the release of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, Metalogix sees a significant number of organizations that want to take advantage of a unified environment for collaboration and content management. Metalogix customers are eager to embrace advancements to workflow, business intelligence, and content editing with the familiar Ribbon feature, part of the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface.

"Companies rely heavily on their SharePoint Server 2010 environments as the central hub for enterprise content," said Stephen Cawood, director of product marketing, Metalogix. "We provide flexible options for migrating data out of SharePoint Server databases and into multi-tiered storage for better performance and higher cost-efficiency."

Metalogix offers solutions to help customers migrate to SharePoint Server 2010 from more than a dozen different environments -- such as local and networked file shares, EMC Documentum eRoom, Google Apps for Business, websites, public folders, Oracle Content Server, and Stellent. Many Metalogix customers also use the company's tools to transition to SharePoint Server 2010 from Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003.

A healthcare company with more than 120,000 customers used the Metalogix solution to move extensive document libraries, lists, and permissions from its Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003 environment to SharePoint Server 2010, automating a highly structured process. The company quickly consolidated all of its SharePoint sites, libraries, lists, web parts, and permissions from multiple servers to the new environment while maintaining critical information, such as descriptive metadata and version histories of each document. The healthcare company reduced its migration time from the four weeks it would have taken without using Metalogix tools to less than two days using Metalogix. This enabled the company to take advantage of SharePoint Server 2010 approximately 90 percent faster.

By using SharePoint Server 2010 and solutions from Metalogix, organizations achieve a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) in their collaboration and content management environments and accomplish streamlined, efficient, effective migrations. They can also quickly take advantage of the cost savings and efficiency gains that SharePoint Online offers.

"We see many organizations taking advantage of SharePoint Server 2010 because it brings about a significant reduction to the TCO for collaboration systems," said Cawood. "Customers are also attracted to the capabilities in SharePoint Server 2010 for connecting to external data."

Metalogix helps organizations preserve valuable business assets, including the descriptive metadata associated with documents and other electronic files. This metadata is particularly valuable in SharePoint Server 2010 as it supports managed metadata that allows an organization to centrally define taxonomies for its intranet or website content to help users find information quickly.

"We want to make sure that customers are getting the most out of the new environment, so we enable a straightforward transfer of the metadata to SharePoint Server 2010 and SharePoint Online," said Cawood.

Metalogix also helps companies quickly take advantage of cloud services for maximum cost savings and efficiency gains. With SharePoint Online, customers enjoy fully hosted collaboration through a collection of web-based tools and technologies while reducing the time and cost investments associated with a physical server infrastructure.

"We see the competitive edge that SharePoint Online can provide to companies as it allows them to quickly roll out collaboration services that enhance productivity and communication while keeping IT costs low," said Cawood.
