Seminar: Upgrading to SharePoint 2013 April 2013

Seminar Series Envision IT is SharePoint 2013 ready

Discover How SharePoint 2013 Helps Organizations Be More Productive While Lowering Costs

April 25, 2013


The latest version of SharePoint is a powerful platform that allows teams to stay organized and connected, discovering more insights into their information while minimizing risks and maximizing innovation. Organizations can benefit from the new features for public web sites, Intranets and Extranets, particularly in the areas of enhanced end user experience, social improvements, search and application integration.

 In this seminar Envision IT will help you understand the upgrade process and we will explore the following areas:

  • SharePoint Migration Goals
  • Building an Inventory of the Current SharePoint Implementation
  • Upgrade Approaches and Strategies
  • Preparation Steps and Documentation
  • Architecting Your 2013 SharePoint Farm
  • Testing and Implementation
  • On Premise vs. Cloud

The two main approaches we will compare and contrast are the Microsoft content database attach method, and the use of third-party migration tools such as from Metalogix or AvePoint.

You will see real examples of sites that we have upgraded to SharePoint 2013, including our own,, and Envision IT Intranet.  See real-world examples of upgrades that we have done or are in progress for the following clients:
