Following a merger, Sitowise found itself inheriting two separate and siloed document management environments: an on-premise file share and SharePoint Online. These environments must be correctly protected and adhere to the information retention needs of the contracted projects.

The business had thousands of documents spread across their on-premise file share server, that was the interface a lot of their company was familiar with using. However, getting two separate environments was developing a disjointed experience and which makes it difficult to get information.

After deeming a complete migration to SharePoint Online to become too disruptive towards the finish-consumer experience, and fully duplicating info on both file servers to become impractical, Sitowise found an easy method with AvePoint solutions.

Sitowise is concluding per month-lengthy 100-user test phase with AvePoint’s FileShare Navigator, which helps files to become utilized through SharePoint whether or not they live there or perhaps in the on-premise file share system.

Sitowise’s IT department also desired to safeguard the organization from losing critical business data.

“In certain cases, critical project data might only appear in one user’s mailbox. We have to have the ability to recover that data, even when that individual left the organization and also the mailbox was deleted,” stated Kokko.

With AvePoint Cloud Backup, Sitowise could extend the duration its archived data was retained past the thirty days provided out-of-the-box by Office 365. Cloud Backup also expedited Sitowise’s restoration occasions and enabled these to conduct unnatural restores and save just one file to SharePoint Online or OneDrive.

Kokko estimates that Cloud Backup has reduced both cost and time needed to backup their data by about 50 % than the on-premise solution these were formerly using.

“The simplicity of use for that setup and implementation of Cloud Backup has truly helped us using the challenges we faced during our merger,” stated Kokko. “AvePoint’s backup service is a lot more flexible compared to native Office 365 backup.”

And for that reason of FileShare Navigator, Sitowise’s employees can enjoy the advantages of just one broadly-accessible, document management portal without the organization requiring to incur the expense or disruption of moving.

Sitowise has additionally benefitted from AvePoint’s world-class customer care.
