Why it Matters

Discovery Tools

Metalogix’s free “Migration Expert” tool is installed individually using their migration products and needs additional installing of the Metalogix Web Services (a SharePoint full trust code solution) to create reports beyond sites and subsites in SharePoint.

Pre-scan discovery capacity is just deliver to SharePoint and File Share sources.

AvePoint’s free” Discovery Tool” for SharePoint migrations requires no installation. It outputs over 20 reports spanning all common pre-migration concerns with more information on custom list/site templates being used, detailed workflows being used, custom web-parts, features and much more. Fully customizable reports could be presented through PowerBI or any other data mining platforms.

AvePoint also provides free discovery tools for each supported migration source (see below)


Listen, we all know installations take some time- as well as approval.

If you are searching to obtain a quick start on planning but do not have time for you to wait (and waste) jumping through hoops, we obtain you ready to go fast.

We know that companies not have only one system–you most likely possess a bunch.

That is why we try to make our toolsets comprehensive–so you purchase once, and solve most if not completely of the migration challenges.

Migration job scheduling

Metalogix’s Content Matrix lacks its very own job schedule engine and rather leverages Home windows Task Scheduler. So it cannot support integrated scheduled jobs inside the application.

Once migration jobs happen to be scheduled, you can’t view them as scheduled tasks within Content Matrix, and should visit Home windows Task Scheduler to change or take away the scheduled task.

AvePoint’s DocAve Platform Migrator features its own built-in job scheduling system making “point and click” easy to set one-some time and recurring schedules for migration jobs. All scheduled migration can be seen, stopped, and restarted in the DocAve job monitor across multiple distributed servers. Migration is definitely an iterative process.

When you migrate, you have to check and validate results. Repeat all over again.

Not getting simple insight may delay the decision making process, and delay any project roll-out.

Migration sources

Content Matrix doesn’t support Lotus Notes, Quickr, Documentum or LiveLink as source systems DocAve Migrator supports these non-SharePoint sources. You should have comprehensive solutions that may solve as numerous of the migration challenges (and support different data sources) as you possibly can.

If you’ve ever considered transitioning to AvePoint or you’re worried about Metalogix’s future direction, there’s been no better time than how to choose to.
