It’s all about how to transition data fast and securely with minimal downtime or disruption to the organization and employees. But that’s much easier said than done in most environments – especially when you start thinking about the scale of content to be migrated and what’s technically required to make content “discoverable” through search so users can locate their documents quickly. If you’ve been following our blog series, you know about our migration-center and how it was designed to overcome many of these challenges. We’re now taking our expertise in migrations to help companies restructure and migrate their enterprise content to the Box Cloud through our upgraded version of the Box adaptor. Our mantra? Make it easy. Make it painless. The migration-center can connect and scan documents from over 140+ migration paths to migrate large volumes of content from any system to Box. You’re thinking “wow” but what exactly does that mean? It means the migration-center with its powerful transformation rules takes care of where and how the documents ends up in Box Cloud when it moves over.

Many organizations moving to Box Cloud plan for all of the benefits of an enterprise-class content management platform that offers a single place to manage and share content. What’s not to like? It’s easy to deploy, it has a graphical user interface (which always gets people hooked), and it sure beats most platforms in terms of collaboration and document versioning, which is essential for compliance and internal tracking. But excitement can quickly turn to despair if organizations don’t plan in advance to take full advantage of what Box offers and have a way to get their data into the system fast. more on migrating to box
