Health Care Logistics Speeds Upgrade to SharePoint 2010

Product Slashes Migration Time for SharePoint 2010 from Four Weeks to Two Days

Metalogix Software, a provider of content lifecycle management (CLM) solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, Exchange, and legacy environments, has announced that Health Care Logistics has purchased its Metalogix Migration Manager for SharePoint to migrate from SharePoint 2003 to SharePoint 2010. The health care products distributor and manufacturer determined that if it used native Microsoft tools, migrating to the latest version of SharePoint would have taken four weeks. Leveraging the Metalogix solution the company was able to slash migration time to less than two days, allowing IT to stay focused on business-critical programs.

"We needed a seamless SharePoint migration solution that wouldn't take us weeks to perform.  We just couldn't afford to recreate all our unstructured data," said Kurt Wolf, technology director of Health Care Logistics.  "Metalogix fit the bill for us. Its Migration Manager for SharePoint was the right solution at the right price, and it could do the job more quickly than we ever thought possible."

Health Care Logistics, which has four offices and two data centers in Ohio, manufactures packages and distributes unique and hard-to-find products such as security seals, compounding and dispensing products, and custom labels to 30,000 accounts and more than 120,000 customers worldwide. Upgrading the company's collaboration platform by migrating from SharePoint 2003 to SharePoint 2010 would improve employee productivity and content manageability. However, the company found that using native Microsoft tools for the migration would take about four weeks. Migrating extensive document libraries of business processes, lists and permissions, and recreating unstructured data, would take IT staff away from other critical-path initiatives, which the company could not afford.

Health Care Logistics needed a seamless solution that could automate and speed up migration while maintaining full fidelity, metadata and user-edit information.  The company found the Metalogix Migration Manager for SharePoint when it began to evaluate third-party solutions.  The product automates the highly structured process and features an easy-to-use copy-and-paste interface that enabled the company to quickly consolidate all SharePoint sites, libraries, lists, web parts and permissions between servers.  The interface also allowed Health Care Logistics to maintain full fidelity-preserving views, version chains, metadata and user-edit information.

Because the Metalogix solution eliminated the need to build temporary data farms, the migration to SharePoint 2010 was quick and seamless.  Health Care Logistics was able to rapidly migrate SharePoint content directly from unattached content databases to live sites. Now IT administrators have the freedom to access multiple SharePoint sites across all of their servers through a simple browser interface.

"The speed with which Health Care Logistics was able to migrate from SharePoint 2003 to SharePoint 2010 is typical of the experience our customers have," said Steven Murphy, CEO of Metalogix. "We offer the most comprehensive solution on the market.  Migrating multiple types of data is complex, but our automated solution takes the hard labor out of the process."
