With the addition of Mover.io to the Microsoft 365 family, Microsoft will complement the work they have done with the SharePoint Migration Tool (SPMT) over the years, FastTrack onboarding services, and integrations with third party solutions to help make the complex process of migration easier and more approachable for customers.
Cloud to Cloud
Mover supports migration from over a dozen cloud service providers – including Box, Dropbox, Egnyte, and Google Drive – into OneDrive and SharePoint, enabling seamless file collaboration across Microsoft 365 apps and services, including the Office apps and Microsoft Teams.
OnPrem to Cloud
The existing SharePoint Migration Tool supports migrations from on-premises SharePoint Servers (2010 & 2013) in addition to file shares.
With these two tools, a customer now can migrate from various locations into one central destination: SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business!
