File Server Migration to SharePoint Online

Client

Based in Singapore, our client is a leading provider of healthcare and diagnostics services, operating multiple centers across South Asia.

Industry

Healthcare

Overview

Most organizations using on-premise file servers have to contend with complex and difficult-to-navigate folder structures that derail team productivity.

Our client’s file server system contained various files, grouped under department-based subfolders. Users and roles were managed through Active Directory (AD) with a complex security implementation that allowed editing for specific roles. With hundreds of AD operations taking place, monitoring changes was a cumbersome task.

When the client approached us for a version-controlled system to replace the file server, we offered the organizational capabilities of SharePoint Online that easily enabled authorization levels. We worked collaboratively with the client’s internal team, utilizing a tool that facilitated smooth transition to Microsoft Cloud.
