Centralized web based migration job management.
- Standard SharePoint List is used to mange migration jobs.
- Each migration job is a simple list item that you can create/update manually or using PowerApps, PowerAutomate, Webcon, Nintex etc.
- Job results are stored in SharePoint Lists and all activity can be viewed from within SharePoint. Excel sheets are generated for listing the files that are processed.
- Secure and 100% contained on your own network or tenant. Do services “in town”.
