davinci_web_ready Davinci Migrator reduces the risks, lowers the overall cost and shortens the time it takes to complete a SharePoint 2010 migration. By helping administrators with the discovery and planning of their migrations, Davinci Migrator delivers a unique feature set to the SharePoint market by reducing the number of failed migration attempts and dramatically shortening project schedules.

"Davinci is powerful and revolutionary for three main reasons. First, Davinci lets managers know whether the migration will succeed before the migration is done, saving precious time. Second, Davinci provides the granular control that an enterprise needs to prioritize, plan, and execute a SharePoint migration. And third, Davinci provides the deep SharePoint environmental analysis a migration requires to understand what’s involved ahead of time," said Garry Smith, General Manager echoProducts.

Davinci Migrator’s dynamic discovery and detailed planning system allows users to quickly and easily define the scope of their migration, identify problems before they occur, and even determine how long it will take to migrate. This enables them to plan and schedule on their own terms. By supplying migration estimates, reporting templates, and a powerful scheduling engine, Davinci helps users build more realistic migration plans.
Among the innovative features of Davinci Migrator are:

  • Detailed pre-migration analysis and rules engine, allowing users to follow best-practices, identify issues during planning, rank them by severity, and recommend actions before moving forward;
  • Support for both granular and entire-site migrations from SharePoint 2003 and 2007 to the new SharePoint 2010 platform;
  • An optimized architecture for large content databases and complex enterprise configurations that have many SharePoint administrators per farm; and,
  • Support for migrating in waves, based on user-defined timetables, priorities and severity of issues found, which reduces team and resource impact.

"Over the next 12 to 18 months, SharePoint administrators will need a reliable, comprehensive solution for managing their SharePoint 2010 rollouts effectively," said Michael Alden, President and CEO, Axceler. "Davinci Migrator and ControlPoint offer a powerful combination that reduces the risks of moving to SharePoint 2010 and streamlines the management of it once they get there."
