SharePoint Tidbit – SharePoint Migration Assessment Tool


As you plan your migration to the cloud I think it will help you to understand your on-prem farm and the possible issues you will face as you migrate if you run the SharePoint Migration Assessment Tool that was created by several PFE’s and now maintained thru the product group.

The tool will scan your farm and provide some general information about it, but more importantly it will provide you with a list of what issues you might run into during your migration to the cloud.  You can download the tool here
