Anyone who exchanges data in their company today often uses SharePoint from Microsoft for this purpose. Typically, SharePoint rooms are set up, for example, to promote communication among employees. High adaptability and fast provision of data are among the main advantages of SharePoint. However, much of the data is still located locally - a SharePoint migration is therefore required for use in the cloud as part of Microsoft 365.
For migration to the cloud, Microsoft offers its own solution with SPMT (SharePoint Migration Tool), among others. SPMT is able to perform simple migrations of local SharePoint instances as well as local data sources. For you, this means a corresponding expenditure of your staff resources for the migration project.
SharePoint migration can make use of various sources. These include SharePoint Server 2010, 2013, and 2016, SharePoint Foundation 2010 and 2013, and local network drives. The prerequisite is access and permission to the respective source. You also need access to the target itself to be able to migrate the content there as well. You have the access rights as a global administrator or SharePoint administrator of your organization.
