Migration of 20 million documents to the Office 365 dedicated vNext platform, live just two weeks after availability of Microsoft cloud hybrid search – reducing IT costs in the digital workplace
This leading global supplier of automotive parts needed to provide business tools to improve its enterprise-wide search and collaboration experience, through the tagging, classification, and reduction of discrete pieces of information that business users had to sort through daily.
Its first challenge was migrating 20 million documents from on-premises to the Office 365 dedicated vNext platform. One of the application challenges Concept Searching meets is intelligent migration. This automotive giant selected conceptClassifier for Office 365 and conceptClassifier for Hybrid Search, to successfully and intelligently migrate 20 million documents complete with metadata. In the process this client reduced its on-premises server footprint down from almost sixty servers to only four, significantly reducing IT costs in its digital workplace. Our solution was live just two weeks after Microsoft announced the general availability of its cloud hybrid search.
